Amazon Kinesis Data Streams
Developer Guide

Developing a Consumer Using the Kinesis Client Library 2.x in Java

You can use version 2.0 or later of the Kinesis Client Library (KCL) to develop applications in Amazon Kinesis Data Streams to receive data from streams using enhanced fan-out. The following code shows an example implementation in Java of ProcessorFactory and RecordProcessor.
