NAME

Kafka::Exceptions - Perl Kafka API exception definitions.

VERSION

This documentation refers to Kafka::Exceptions version 1.07 .

SYNOPSIS

    use 5.010;
    use strict;
    use warnings;

    use Scalar::Util qw(
        blessed
    );
    use Try::Tiny;

    # A simple example of Kafka::Connection usage:
    use Kafka::Connection;

    # connect to local cluster with the defaults
    my $connection;
    try {
        $connection = Kafka::Connection->new( host => 'localhost' );
    } catch {
        my $error = $_;
        if ( blessed( $error ) && $error->isa( 'Kafka::Exception' ) ) {
            if ( $error->isa( 'Kafka::Exception::Connection' ) ) {
                # Specific treatment for 'Kafka::Connection' class error
            } elsif ( $error->isa( 'Kafka::Exception::IO' ) ) {
                # Specific treatment for 'Kafka::IO' class error
            }
            warn ref( $error ), " error:\n", $error->message, "\n", $error->trace->as_string, "\n";
            exit;
        } else {
            die $error;
        }
    };

    # Closes the connection and cleans up
    $connection->close;
    undef $connection;

DESCRIPTION

The purpose of the Kafka::Exceptions module is:

  • Declare a Kafka API exceptions hierarchy.

  • Provide additional methods for working with exceptions.

It is designed to make exception handling structured, simpler and better by encouraging use of hierarchy of exceptions in application (vs single catch-all exception class).

The following additional attributes are available in Kafka::Exception and its subclasses:

code

An error code that references error in %Kafka::ERROR hash.

message

An error message that contains information about the encountered failure. This message may contain additional details which are not provided by %Kafka::ERROR hash.

Exception objects provide accessor methods for these attributes. Attributes are inherited by subclasses.

Various Kafka API modules throw exceptions objects of a Kafka::Exception subclass specific to that module:

Kafka::Exception::Connection

See Kafka::Connection methods.

Kafka::Exception::Consumer

See Kafka::Consumer methods.

Kafka::Exception::IO

See Kafka::IO methods.

Kafka::Exception::Int64

See Kafka::Int64 methods.

Kafka::Exception::Producer

See Kafka::Producer methods.

Kafka::Exception::Protocol

See Kafka::Protocol methods.

Authors suggest using of Try::Tiny's try and catch to handle exceptions while working with Kafka package.

You may also want to review documentation of Exception::Class, which is the default base class for all exception objects created by this module.

FUNCTIONS

The following functions are exported by Kafka::Exceptions module:

throw_args( $error_code, $description )

Converts arguments into Kafka::Exception constructor attributes "code" and "message".

throw_args() accepts the following arguments:

$error_code

The code of the last error. The code must match the error codes defined in the module Kafka.

$description

An additional error description that contains information about the encountered problem.

SEE ALSO

The basic operation of the Kafka package modules:

Kafka - constants and messages used by the Kafka package modules.

Kafka::Connection - interface to connect to a Kafka cluster.

Kafka::Producer - interface for producing client.

Kafka::Consumer - interface for consuming client.

Kafka::Message - interface to access Kafka message properties.

Kafka::Int64 - functions to work with 64 bit elements of the protocol on 32 bit systems.

Kafka::Protocol - functions to process messages in the Apache Kafka's Protocol.

Kafka::IO - low-level interface for communication with Kafka server.

Kafka::Exceptions - module designated to handle Kafka exceptions.

Kafka::Internals - internal constants and functions used by several package modules.
