Creating kafka topics with Java doesn’t work

Creating kafka topics with Java doesn’t work

I’m trying to create Kafka topics using Java. But I get a Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: DEFAULT_SSL_PRINCIPAL_MAPPING_RULES and I can’t fix it.
My goal is to create a topic so that when I run my Kafka server to display my topics using this command bin/kafka-topics.sh –list –bootstrap-server localhost:9092, I can actually see my topic in the list.
(the command is from Kafka’s official website https://kafka.apache.org/quickstart)
I looked up to this problem How to create a Topic in Kafka through Java which actually inspired my code, but not only it doesn’t really help, but it seems like it uses deprecated classes and methods.
I tried to use what I believed to be more recent classes such as ZooKeeperClient, KafkaZkClient and AdminZkClient, but from what I understand, the method adminZkClient.createTopic(topic, noOfPartitions, noOfReplication, topicConfiguration, RackAwareMode.Disabled$.MODULE$); is what brings the exception. I don’t know what it is about that function that creates the exception, whether I forgot something from my application.properties file or something else.
Here’s my code
import java.util.Properties;

import org.I0Itec.zkclient.ZkClient;
import org.I0Itec.zkclient.ZkConnection;
import org.apache.kafka.common.utils.Time;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.data.jpa.repository.config.EnableJpaAuditing;

import kafka.admin.AdminUtils;
import kafka.admin.RackAwareMode;
import kafka.utils.ZkUtils;
import kafka.zk.AdminZkClient;
import kafka.zk.KafkaZkClient;
import kafka.zookeeper.ZooKeeperClient;
import kafka.utils.*;

@SpringBootApplication
@EnableJpaAuditing
public class ChatApplication {

@SuppressWarnings(“deprecation”)
public static void main(String[] args) {
try {
String zookeeperHost = “127.0.0.1:2181”;
int sessionTimeOutInMs = 15 * 1000;
int connectionTimeOutInMs = 10 * 1000;

ZooKeeperClient zooKeeperClient = new ZooKeeperClient(zookeeperHost, sessionTimeOutInMs, connectionTimeOutInMs, 2, Time.SYSTEM, “BytesInPerSec”, “BytesOutPerSec”);

KafkaZkClient kafkaZkClient = new KafkaZkClient(zooKeeperClient, true, Time.SYSTEM);

String topic = “superTopic”;
int noOfPartitions = 2;
int noOfReplication = 1;
Properties topicConfiguration = new Properties();

AdminZkClient adminZkClient = new AdminZkClient(kafkaZkClient);

adminZkClient.createTopic(topic, noOfPartitions, noOfReplication, topicConfiguration, RackAwareMode.Disabled$.MODULE$);

} catch (Exception ex) {
ex.printStackTrace();
}
}

//SpringApplication.run(ChatApplication.class, args);

}

Here’s the output I get :

Solution 1:

not sure why you get this exception. Here’s a solution that works for me, and just uses the KafkaAdminClient:

@SpringBootApplication
@EnableJpaAuditing
public class TopicCreator {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException, ExecutionException {
    Properties properties = new Properties();
    properties.put(ProducerConfig.BOOTSTRAP_SERVERS_CONFIG, "localhost:9092");
    AdminClient kafkaAdminClient = KafkaAdminClient.create(properties);
    CreateTopicsResult result = kafkaAdminClient.createTopics(
            Stream.of("foo", "bar", "baz").map(
                    name -> new NewTopic(name, 3, (short) 1)
            ).collect(Collectors.toList())
    );
    result.all().get();
  }

}

As the above code shows, for newer versions of Kafka you can create topics directly through Kafka. Does this help?
