As Kafka Connect is included in MapR Streams, please see Kafka Connect for MapR Streams.
Why not bundle and support a few popular Kafka Connect connectors within MapR converged Data Platform?
This would help the users of MapR Streams to use these Kafka Connect connectors for large scale streaming of data in and out of MapR Streams for a variety of data systems through a simple GUI with simple configurations and no code necessary! What are your thoughts?
