Debezium is developed base on Kafka Connect framework and we need Apache Kafka cluster to store the captured events data from source databases. Sometime we do not require the level of tolerance and reliability provided by Apache Kafka cluster, but you still need Change Data Capture (CDC). This is where Debezium Engine come into the picture.
Typical microservices outbox pattern implementation requires developers to manually create the outbox event table and write the codes to send the data from the outbox table to the respective messaging platform. Debezium Outbox Event Router together with Outbox Quarkus Extension take cares of this and enforce a standard approach to do this with declarative implementation. This allows the developers to focus on business logic implementation and achieve faster application delivery.
