Kafka record

The above image shows probably the most important and common parts of a message that users deal with directly.

Each key and value can interact in its own specific ways to serialize or deserialize its data.

Now that we have a record, how do we let Kafka know about it? You will deliver this message to Kafka by sending it to what is known as brokers.
