Technology Preview features are not supported with Red Hat production service-level agreements (SLAs) and might not be functionally complete; therefore, Red Hat does not recommend implementing any Technology Preview features in production environments. This Technology Preview feature provides early access to upcoming product innovations, enabling you to test functionality and provide feedback during the development process. For more information about support scope, see Technology Preview Features Support Scope.

3.1. AMQ Streams Kafka Bridge

The AMQ Streams Kafka Bridge provides a RESTful interface to AMQ Streams, offering the advantages of a web API that is easy to use and connect with AMQ Streams without the need to interpret the Kafka protocol.

The HTTP Bridge supports HTTP producer and consumer requests to:

  • Produce records
  • Consume records
  • Create consumers
  • Delete consumers
  • Retrieve data from topics and partitions
  • Commit offsets to partitions and topics

The methods provide JSON responses and HTTP response code error handling.


AMQP is not currently supported, even for Technology Preview.
