KIP-266 have replaced the (long, TimeUnit) by Duration for KafkaConsumer. For consistency, we should do the same APIs migration for KafkaProducer and KafkaAdminClient.
Noted: the implementation of close(long, TimeUnit) will be placed at AdminClient.
Noted: there is a default implementation of close(long, TimeUnit).
New Public methods are proposed. see Public Interfaces
In short, this KIP is going to deprecate close(long, TimeUnit) of KafkaProducer and KafkaAdminClient and add a replacement method - close(Duration)
Compatibility, Deprecation, and Migration Plan
No compatibility issues foreseen.
If there are alternative ways of accomplishing the same thing, what were they? The purpose of this section is to motivate why the design is the way it is and not some other way.
