Is there a Kafka connector for Cassandra as the source?

Hi.

Is there any solution about datastax cassandra source connector ?

I found https://github.com/datastax/labs/tree/master/kafka-connector-cdc project using DataStax Enterprise Advanced Replication. But this project is not seem to be going on.

Debezium cassandra source connector project(https://github.com/debezium/debezium-connector-cassandra) is not good as it launches an agent on each node. And Lensesio cassandra source connector project(https://github.com/lensesio/stream-reactor/tree/master/kafka-connect-cassandra) relies on the cassandra table schema structure.

Is there any solution ?

At the time of writing, there is no official Kafka connector where Cassandra is the source. The DataStax CDC Connector for Kafka which you referenced was an alpha release which never reached beta or GA release.

The only connector available at this point is where a Cassandra cluster is the sink. The DataStax Apache Kafka™ Connector allows you to sync records from a Kafka topic to an Apache Cassandra cluster, DSE cluster or an Astra cloud database.

We are working on a source connector but it's still in the early stages and I don't have any information I can share publicly at this stage. Stay tuned. Cheers!
