Confluent Platform and Confluent Cloud complete Kafka with schema management and programmatic schema validation to ensure data compatibility across event streaming applications and to enable reliable development.
Schema Registry is a central repository with a RESTful interface for developers to define standard schemas and register applications to enable compatibility. Schema Registry is available as a software component of Confluent Platform or as a managed component of Confluent Cloud.
Schema Validation provides a direct interface between the Kafka broker and Schema Registry to validate and enforce schemas programmatically. Schema Validation can be configured at the Kafka topic level. Currently only available in Confluent Platform.
