Schemas and the Schema Registry


Schemas are a way for us to ensure that our data streams match a specified contract. We register them with a Schema Registry so that other users will have access. The built-in serializers for Avro, Protobuf, and JSON all include integration with the Confluent Schema Registry. Although JSON is normally a schemaless format, there is a JSON Schema add-on that we can leverage. This video will introduce the Schema Registry Client and show how it can be attached to a serializer in order to ensure message quality.
