New in This Release

Kafka Streams - 2307 introduces the following enhancements or HPE platform-specific behavior changes:
  • Bug fixes
  • CVEs fixes
  • KAFKA-936: Starting from EEP 9.1.2, the kafka-eventstreams artifact is moved to the Kafka project as a sub-module.
    • Previous maven coordinates for kafka-eventstreams library:
      For old maven coordinates, such as for 0.2.0.*, use <eventstreams_version>. For example, for EEP 9.1.1, <eventstreams_version> is
    • New maven coordinates for kafka-eventstreams library:
      For new maven coordinates, such as for 2.6.1.*, use <kafka_version>. For example, for EEP 9.1.2, kafka_version is

    If you do not use kafka-eventstreams as a dependency (in gradle/maven), then this change does not affect you in any way, as there are no changes in the .jar itself that break backward compatibility.

    If you do use kafka-eventstreams as a dependency in your project, then for EEP 9.1.2 and later you must use the same groupID and version as for all other kafka* artifacts. For example, for EEP 9.1.2, this would be as follows:

Known Issues and Limitations

  • The application reset tool may throw a Null Pointer Exception when the date or duration parameter is used.
  • The application reset tool does not reset to intermediate offset if the topic has multiple partitions.
  • MAPR-KAFKA-581: Stream hangs in rebalancing state. The workaround is to set a larger timeout. This issue is caused by MS-915: “MapR Stream application hangs inside cycle”
