    Description

      Serializer, Deserializer and Serde interfaces have methods configure() and close(). Pretty often one want to leave these methods empty. For example, a lot of serializers inside org.apache.kafka.common.serialization package have these methods empty:

      @Override
      public void configure(Map<String, ?> configs, boolean isKey) {
          // nothing to do
      }
      
      @Override
      public void close() {
          // nothing to do
      }
      

      To avoid such boilerplate, we may create new interfaces (like UnconfiguredSerializer), in which we will define these methods empty.
