Confluent Platform Packages

You can use the platform packages to install the entire Confluent Platform, and use the component packages to install individual components.

Certain packages are available in two variants, named by the Scala version (<scala_version>) of Apache Kafka® that is included in the packages. Kafka is implemented in Scala and built for multiple versions of Scala.

Platform Packages

The platform packages include all Confluent Platform packages.

confluent-platform-<scala_version>

The complete Confluent Platform, including all community and commercial component packages.

confluent-community-<scala_version>
