Capture the Streams of Database Changes

The stream-table duality means that we can view streams as tables and tables as streams. If we have a real database table and want a stream, we need to capture the changes to the data in the table and record them as a stream. Debezium’s open source DBMS-specific Kafka Connect connectors do exactly this, making it very easy to your software to react to your changing data in near real time.
