Apache Kafka in the era of Java Microframeworks

Over the last couple of years, we've observed a slow but steady rise of Java Microframeworks. Micronaut, Quarkus, Javalin - all trying to steal Spring Boot's thunder. So how do they compare to Spring Boot in terms of Kafka integration? Can they deliver the versatility and convenience for which we've come to love Spring Boot, but without its drawbacks?

In this lightning talk we'll compare approaches offered by each of the aforementioned frameworks, and see how they stack up against Spring Boot in common use cases like consumers, producers and streams.
