Message Hub is a cloud based offering of Apache KafkaÂ®.Â Apache Kafka is aÂ high throughput message bus that provides rapid communication between applications.Â If you are using Message Hub to send data between applications, you can extract insights from that data in real time by analyzing it using Streams Designer. You can use Message Hub as a data source or data sink in your streaming analytics applications.
We’ve just published a notebook in Watson Data Platform that will show you how to use Message Hub as a data source in a Streams Designer application, which are called flows. It shows you how to 1) send data to Message Hub, 2) use the data from Message Hub in a Streams flow, and 3) send the results of the flow back to Message Hub.
