Example Configurations

These following sections requires running ZooKeeper, Apache Kafka®, and Connect. For more information, see the Kafka Connect quick start guide.

Standalone

The first configuration is used typically along with :standalone mode.

name=connector1
tasks.max=1
connector.class=io.confluent.connect.activemq.ActiveMQSourceConnector
# The following values must be configured.
kafka.topic=MyKafkaTopicName
activemq.url=tcp://localhost:61616
jms.destination.name=testing
# The following define the information used to validate the license stored in Kafka
# or leave blank for a 30 day trial
confluent.license=
confluent.topic.bootstrap.servers=localhost:9092

Change the confluent.topic.* properties as required to suit your environment. If running on a single-node Kafka cluster you will need to include confluent.topic.replication.factor=1. Leave the confluent.license property blank for a 30 day trial. See the configuration options for more details.

Note

Be sure to check the connector configuration properties for other options when connecting to ActiveMQ, and the ActiveMQ documentation for details about the ActiveMQ URL parameters.

Distributed

This configuration is used typically along with distributed mode. Write the following JSON to connector.json, configure all of the required values, and use the command below to post the configuration to one the distributed connect worker(s).

{
  "name": "connector1",
  "config": {
    "connector.class": "io.confluent.connect.activemq.ActiveMQSourceConnector",
    "kafka.topic":"MyKafkaTopicName",
    "activemq.url":"tcp://localhost:61616",
    "jms.destination.name":"testing",
    "confluent.license":"",
    "confluent.topic.bootstrap.servers":"localhost:9092"
  }
}

Change the confluent.topic.* properties as required to suit your environment. If running on a single-node Kafka cluster you will need to include "confluent.topic.replication.factor":"1". Leave the confluent.license property blank for a 30 day trial. See the configuration options for more details.

Note

Be sure to check the For other options when connecting to ActiveMQ, see the connector configuration properties , and for details about the ActiveMQ URL parameters, see the ActiveMQ documentation .

Use curl to post the configuration to one of the Kafka Connect Workers. Change http://localhost:8083/ the endpoint of one of your Kafka Connect worker(s).

curl -s -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' --data @connector.json http://localhost:8083/connectors
