Debezium Blog

Change events streamed from a database by Debezium are (in developer parlance) strongly typed. This means that event consumers should be aware of the types of data conveyed in the events. This problem of passing along message type data can be solved in multiple ways:

Welcome to the latest edition of the Debezium community newsletter, in which we share all things CDC related including blog posts, group discussions, as well as StackOverflow questions that are relevant to our user community.

It’s with great excitement that I’m announcing the release of Debezium 1.1.0.Final!

About three months after the 1.0 release, this new version comes with many exciting new features such as:

Setting up change data capture (CDC) pipelines with Debezium typically is a matter of configuration, without any programming being involved. It’s still a very good idea to have automated tests for your CDC set-up, making sure that everything is configured correctly and that your Debezium connectors are set up as intended.

There’s two main components involved whose configuration need consideration:

  • The source database: it must be set up so that Debezium can connect to it and retrieve change events; details depend on the specific database, e.g. for MySQL the binlog must be in "row" mode, for Postgres, one of the supported logical decoding plug-ins must be installed, etc.

  • The Debezium connector: it must be configured using the right database host and credentials, possibly using SSL, applying table and column filters, potentially one or more single message transformations (SMTs), etc.

It’s my pleasure to announce the release of Debezium 1.1.0.CR1!

This release brings a brand-new API module, including a facility for overriding the schema and value conversion of specific columns. The Postgres connector gained the ability to reconnect to the database after a connection loss, and the MongoDB connector supports the metrics known from other connectors now.
