      Description

      The StreamThread creates producer/consumers directly as KafkaProducer and KafkaConsumer, thus eliminating my ability to unit test my streams code without having an active Kafka nearby. Could this be abstracted in a way that it relies on an optional ProducerProvider or ConsumerProvider implementation that could inject a mock producer/consumer for unit testing? We do this in all our kafka code for unit testing and if a provider is not offered at runtime, we create the concrete KafkaProdocer/Consumer components by default.
