Developing a MapR-ES C Application

This topic includes basic information about how to develop a MapR-ES C application. Sample applications are provided.

Before you Begin

Confirm that your environment meets the following requirements:

  • The MapR cluster version is 5.2.1 or greater.
  • MapR core client (mapr-client) packagei s installed on the node and it is configured to access the cluster. Or, it is a MapR cluster node. See Installing the MapR Client for more information.
  • The MapR-ES C Client is installed and configured on the node. See Configuring the MapR-ES C Client.
  • GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) is installed on the node.

Creating, Compiling and Running C Apps

The following sections describes how to create a producer and consumer in C, compile the source code, generate executables, and run the applications.

This topic describes how to create a MapR-ES streams producer in C. While the code to generate a MapR-ES stream producer varies depending on the use case, in general, the producer code should contain the following:
  1. Include the rdkafka.h header file (/opt/mapr/include/librdkafka/rdkafka.h)
  2. Use rd_kafka_conf_new() to create the producer configuration.
  3. Use rd_kafka_new () to create the producer handle.
  4. Use rd_kafka_topic_conf_new() to create the topic configuration.
  5. Use rd_kafka_topic_new () to create a topic handle for the producer.
  6. Use rd_kafka_produce() to produce messages.
  7. Optionally, use rd_kafka_poll()to poll for callbacks. This is useful to see if there are messages that have yet to be sent to the server.
  8. Use rd_kafka_topic_destroy () to destroy the topic handle destroy
  9. Use rd_kafka_destroy () to destroy the producer handle.
Note: For more details on the APIs, see Supported APIs for MapR-ES C Client and rdkafka.h

For example, the following source code produces 5 messages to topic /MapR_Streams:MapR-Topic1:

/*
 * This file contains the producer function.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>

This topic describes how to compile MapR-ES streams producers and consumers in C. When you compile a MapR-ES C application, you must link it with the librdkafka library in the /opt/mapr/lib/ library path and include the header file directory to ensure that your application references the header file included with MapR-ES C Client.
Important: For MapR 6.0.0 and earlier, When you compile a MapR-ES C application, you must link it with the librdkafka library in the /opt/mapr/lib/ library path, the libjvm library, and include the header file directory to ensure that your application references the header file included with MapR-ES C Client.

The following steps compile the source code and generate executables in the same directory as the Makefile. For example, in the librdkafka_example directory, the consumer and producer executables are generated from the producer.c and consumer.c source files.

  1. On your node, create a directory. For example: librdkafka_example.
  2. In your directory (librdkafka_example), create a producer application. For example, if you are using the provided sample producer application:
    1. Create a file named producer.c.
    2. Copy the contents of the sample producer application into that file.
  3. In your directory (librdkafka_example), create a consumer application. For example, if you are using the provided sample consumer application:
    1. Create a file named consumer.c.
    2. Copy the contents of the sample consumer application into that file.
  4. In your directory (librdkafka_example), create a file named Makefile with the following content:
    CC= g++
    HEADERDIR=/opt/mapr/include/librdkafka/
    CCFLAGS= -Wall -I$(HEADERDIR) -g -std=c99
    
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mapr/lib
    
    LIBDIR= /opt/mapr/lib/
    %.o: %.c
    	gcc $(CCFLAGS) -c $< 
    
    consumer: consumer.o
    	gcc -o $@ $@.o -lrdkafka -L$(LIBDIR) $(CCFLAGS)
    
    producer: producer.o
    	gcc -o $@ $@.o -lrdkafka -L$(LIBDIR) $(CCFLAGS)
    
    all: consumer producer
    
    clean:
    	/bin/rm -f *.o consumer producer
    Important: For MapR 6.0.0 and earlier, use the following Makefile:
    CC= g++
    HEADERDIR=/opt/mapr/include/librdkafka/
    CCFLAGS= -Wall -I$(HEADERDIR) -g -std=c99
    
    #Edit JAVA_HOME to be appropriate for your environment
    JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mapr/lib:$(JAVA_HOME)/jre/lib/amd64/server
    
    LIBDIR= /opt/mapr/lib/
    %.o: %.c
    	gcc $(CCFLAGS) -c $< 
    
    consumer: consumer.o
    	gcc -o $@ $@.o -lrdkafka -L$(LIBDIR) $(CCFLAGS)
    
    producer: producer.o
    	gcc -o $@ $@.o -lrdkafka -L$(LIBDIR) $(CCFLAGS)
    
    all: consumer producer
    
    clean:
    	/bin/rm -f *.o consumer producer
  5. Complete the following edits to the Makefile:
    For Mac users, locate the following line of code:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mapr/lib 
    Then, replace this line with the following line of code:
    export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mapr/lib
    Important: For MapR 6.0.0 and earlier, the following steps apply:
    1. For Mac users, locate the following line of code:
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mapr/lib:$(JAVA_HOME)/jre/lib/amd64/server
      Then, replace this line with the following line of code:
      export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/mapr/lib:$(JAVA_HOME)/jre/lib/server
    2. Based on your environment, edit JAVA_HOME. This ensures that LD_LIBRARY_PATH or DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH will include the full path to the directory containing the libjvm library.
      Note: You can use find / -name libjvm* to determine the JAVA_HOME directory on your machine. However, note that the results of this command include the full path to the libjvm file not just the JAVA_HOME directory.

      For example, JAVA_HOME may be set to Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_121.jdk/Contents/Home/ on a Mac and JAVA_HOME may be set to /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.79.x86_64/ on Linux.

  6. From your directory (librdkafka_example), run the following commands to compile the source code:
    make clean
    make all

Once you have the application executables, complete the following steps to run the application:

  1. On a cluster node, use the maprcli to create a stream. For example, MapR_Streams.
    maprcli stream create -path /MapR_Streams
    Note: As long as autocreate is enabled for the stream when you run stream create,the producer will create the topic. By default, autocreate is enabled. For more information, see stream create.
  2. At the command line, set the library path to include /opt/mapr/lib and the path to the directory that contains the libjvm library. For more information, see Configuring the MapR-ES C Client.
    Note: You must complete this step at the command line even though you already set the library path in the Makefile. If you do not complete the step, an error similar to the following displays when you run the application in the next step: error while loading shared libraries: librdkafka.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
  3. From your directory (librdkafka_example), run the producer application from the command line. For example, if the application is called producer:
    ./producer
    The following appears on the console assuming that the stream name is MapR_Streams:
    ************************ PRODUCER ************************
    Create producer configuration object
    Create Producer Kafka handle
    Create topic handle
    Send/Produce message to topic: /MapR_Streams:MapR-Topic1
    Wait for messages to be delivered
    Produced: Welcome to MapR Streams CAPI
    Produced: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 1
    Produced: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 2
    Produced: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 3
    Produced: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 4
    
    Destroy topic handle
    Destroy producer handle
    
    PASS: 5 messages produced and sent to topic partition /MapR_Streams:MapR-Topic1
    
  4. From your directory (librdkafka_example), run the consumer application from the command line. For example, if the application is called consumer:
    ./consumer
    The following appears on the console assuming that the stream name is MapR_Streams:
    *********  CONSUMER START  *********
    Create new consumer configuration object
    Set topic configurations
    Create consumer Kafka handle
    Create topic partition list for topic: /MapR_Streams:MapR-Topic1
    Subscribe consumer to the topic:
    Destroy topic partition list:
    
    Start message consumption:
    1 Consumed: Welcome to MapR-ES CAPI
    2 Consumed: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 1
    3 Consumed: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 2
    4 Consumed: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 3
    5 Consumed: MapR Streams CAPI Message Payload 4
    
    Commit the offsets before closing the consumer
    
    Close and destroy consumer handle
    
    PASS: 5 messages consumed from topic /MapR_Streams:MapR-Topic1
