Building the sample 

Start the WSO2 CEP server with the sample configuration numbered 0018. For instructions, see Starting sample CEP configurations. This sample configuration creates the following.

  • An event stream with the ID
  • An event receiver named kafkaReceiver to fetch events from the configured receiver email address  
  • An event publisher named loggerEventPublisher to log the received messages

Executing the sample 

Navigate to the  <CEP_HOME>/samples/cep/producers/kafka/ directory, and execute the following Ant command using another tab in the CLI:  ant -Durl=localhost:9092 -Dtopic=sensordata -Dsn=0018

The other optional parameters that can be used in the above command are defined in the  <CEP_HOME>/samples/cep/producers/kafka/build.xml  file.

This builds the Kafka client and publishes the JSON events in the  <CEP_HOME>/samples/cep/artifacts/0018/sensordata.txt  file to the  kafkaReceiver  endpoint.  You can view the details of the events that are sent as shown below.

You view the CEP server receiving the JSON events in the logs of it in the CLI as shown below.
