Installing and Configuring Schema Registry¶
Schema Registry is included in Confluent Enterprise and Confluent Open Source. The binaries are located at https://www.confluent.io/download/ as a part of the Confluent Enterprise and Confluent Open Source bundles.
For installation instructions, see the On-Premises Deployments.
To build a development version, you may need a development versions of common and rest-utils. After installing these, you can build Schema Registry with Maven. All the standard lifecycle phases work. During development, use
to run the unit and integration tests, and
to run an instance of Schema Registry against a local Kafka cluster (using the default configuration included with Kafka).
To create a packaged version, optionally skipping the tests:
mvn package [-DskipTests]
This will produce a version ready for production in
package/target/kafka-schema-registry-package-$VERSION-package containing a directory layout
to the packaged binary versions. You can also produce a standalone fat jar using the
mvn package -P standalone [-DskipTests]
package/target/kafka-schema-registry-package-$VERSION-standalone.jar, which includes all the
dependencies as well.
