The Kafka offset trap in Spring Cloud

This morning, I worked as usual with Java Spring apps and Kafka. I wanted to test the kafka configuration auto.offset.reset.

By default, following the Kafka documentation, the value of auto.offset.reset is latest.

But when I did my test, I saw that this default configuration is not applied with Spring!

When I looked in the Spring Cloud documentation, I saw that the default value is earliest!

I don't know why it's configured like this, but it's a little bit confusing.

I hope it will help you!
