This is an example of structured-streaming with latest Spark v2.1.0.

A spark job reads from Kafka topic, manipulates data as datasets/dataframes and writes to Cassandra.


  1. Inside setup directory, run docker-compose up -d to launch instances of zookeeper, kafka and cassandra

  2. Wait for a few seconds and then run docker ps to make sure all the three services are running.

  3. Then run pip install -r requirements.txt

  4. generates some random data and publishes it to a topic in kafka.

  5. Run the spark-app using sbt clean compile run in a console. This app will listen on topic (check Main.scala) and writes it to Cassandra.

  6. Again run to write some test data on a kafka topic.

  7. Finally check if the data has been published in cassandra.

  • Go to cqlsh docker exec -it cas_01_test cqlsh localhost
  • And then run select * from my_keyspace.test_table ;
  1. Another branch avro-example contains avro deserialization code.


  • This repository has borrowed some snippets from killrweather app.
