KIP-479, implemented in Kafka 2.4.0, added
StreamJoined to Kafka Streams as a way to extend features of
Materialized to stream-stream joins. During the KIP discussion, adding the option to disable logging was discussed but not implemented through KIP-479. Adding this feature allows users more flexibility over their store and fits with the original goal of extending
Materialized features to stream-stream joins.
This KIP will add the following two methods as well as a
loggingEnabled variable and a
topicConfig variable to store any configs passed in when enabling logging.
We will add two new methods to
StreamJoined to allow users to determine whether they want logging for their stores. This config sets the logging decision for both stores, meaning that if logging is disabled for
thisWindowStore, it will also be disabled for
otherWindowStore. The default value for
loggingEnabled will be
true, enabling logging for both stores if the user does not set the values manually.
Compatibility, Deprecation, and Migration Plan
As this is not deprecating or changing default behavior there should be no compatibility issues
