Kafka Streams Overview

Kafka Streams is a client library for building applications and microservices, where the input and output data are stored in an Apache Kafka® cluster. It combines the simplicity of writing and deploying standard Java and Scala applications on the client side with the benefits of Kafka’s server-side cluster technology.
