A micro services toolkit

Microbial

Experimental! (ish)

You will need to install Kafka and Zookeeper, follow these instruction:

###hello sample Firstly you will need to setup the sample configuration in zookeeper.

cd samples/hello/config
node config.js

You can view the Zookeeper config at any point:

node dumpConfig.js

You will also need to create the topics in Kafka. The samples use a 'request' and a 'response' topic each with three partitions. Go ahead and create these in Kafka.

####simpleProducer The following will run the simple producer. This will post requests into the kafka request topic at the rate of one a second.

cd samples/hello/producer
node simpleproducer.js

The request topic has three partitions so messages will be distributed across these partitions.

To recieve and respond to messages run the hello client:

cd samples/hello/services
node hello.js
node hello.js
node hello.js

Run three copies to read messages from each of the three partitions.
