      Description

      Connect is missing a pass through converter / ByteArrayConverter that doesn't manipulate the message payload. This is needed for binary messages that don't have a plaintext, json or avro interpretation. For example, messages that contain a binary encoding of a proprietary or esoteric protocol, to be decoded later.

      Currently there's a public class available here: https://github.com/qubole/streamx/blob/8b9d43008d9901b8e6020404f137944ed97522e2/src/main/java/com/qubole/streamx/ByteArrayConverter.java
