Looking for suggestions/approaches on guidelines for overriding/updating Connector Libraries on Confluent platform 5.5.x… e.g. need to know steps to update to JDBC connector 10.2.x but the built in image comes with Kafka connect jdbc 5.5.2. This could be generalized for finding best practices for plug-in lifecycle and change management too.
If you’re simply referring to JARs, then you would stop the connector, wipe and replace the
kafka-connect-jdbc folder with the newer versions.
If you mean the Docker images, then you can build new images from the
cp-connect-base and run
confluent-hub --install and you’d tag those images in coordination with your own versioning schemes
