I am integrating apache kafka with hdfs, and I need to automate all the versions used automatically to the latest versions. How do I do it?

    There's ways to do this, but in general it's a very bad idea to always use automatically the latest versions. What happens when you release a new version to prod, and the build automation grabs a new release that you haven't tested with, that happens to break your system in production? Or there's a version released that actually has a bug?

    There's a reason why most build systems (maven, gradle, etc) by default pin the dependencies to a specific version.

    See these other questions (and top answers) for more details about this being a bad idea:

    Gradle - getting the latest release version of a dependency

    How do I tell Maven to use the latest version of a dependency?
