Can we get DataSet - > Kafka integration option in V722?
We are using V722 in our application and we are not sure when we go to upgrade of our application. But we have got an urgent requirement to work with Kafka streaming. I know there is no DataSet option to use for Kafka in V722. I would like to know any other way or HFix we get to get this Kafka option enabled for current DataSet in V722? BTW - we are working on the same requirement using Java code built in a function with Avro schema for mapping of Kafka topic. Please let me know.

Unfortunately, as Kevin already highlighted there is no OOTB feature or method to connect KAFKA with Pega 7.2.2. The Kafka data instance to connect between Pega Platform and external Apache Kafka server was introduced with Pega 7.3 version.
This is a product enhancement and thus would not be packed in a hotfix as it would most likely have huge architectural impacts.
We recommend that if you want to use this feature, then please upgrade to a higher Pega version.
