Kafka Adapter for SAP PO

Apache Kafka is a popular open source project for processing event-driven data streams based on a transaction log.

Kafka clusters are often used in Big Data projects that value the combination of fault tolerance, high scalability and durability, and low latency when processing real-time data streams.

The Kafka Adapter for PO allows you to integrate your SAP landscape with Apache Kafka.

Our current version of the adapter supports:

  • Publishing PO messages as Kafka records.
  • Subscribing Kafka records as PO messages from 1..n topics.
  • Reading of beginning, end or arbitrary positions in Kafka streams.
  • Payload transformation between XML and JSON, AVRO, Protocol buffers and vice versa
  • Support of freestyle Avro schemas as well as Avro schema registries (e.g.: on confluent.io or self-hosted)
  • Common security options like PLAIN, PLAIN_SASL, SASL_SSL, SASL-Plain/SASL-SCRAM as well as client certificate authentication.
  • Dynamic Kafka record header read and write
  • Dynamic topic/partition or key information read and write
  • Deduplication of already processed Kafka data records via XI deduplication
  • Message batching, merging many Kafka records into one SAP PO message

The adapter works completely with SAP PO on-board tools for configuration or monitoring and does not require external tools for certificate management or AVRO schemas.
