Subject Re: Is this a valid use case for reading local store ?
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2020 17:39:42 GMT
Hi Guozhang,

The async event trigger process is not running as a kafka streams application. It offers REST
interface where other applications post events which in turn needs to go through App1's state
and send requests to App2 via Kafka. Here is the diagram:

   KafkaTopics--->  App1 ---> App2 
                REST ---->App3

REST API to App3 and read the local store of App1 (IQ) and send requests to App2 (through
kafka topic, not shown above).  Conceptually it looks same as your use case. What do people
do if a kafka streams application (App1) has to offer REST interface also ?

    Hello Mohan,
    If I understand correctly, your async event trigger process runs out of the
    streams application, that reads the state stores of app2 through the
    interactive query interface, right? This is actually a pretty common use
    case pattern for IQ :)
