TIBCO® Messaging - Bridge for Apache Kafka - Community Edition is available free of charge and allows you to connect Apache Kafka with the TIBCO FTL component of TIBCO Messaging. You can use it to develop prototypes and proof of concept implementations and even small scale production deployments.

The Community Edition is a fully functional installation of the TIBCO Messaging product, with the following limitations and exclusions:
- Users may run up to 100 client instances in a production environment
- No access to TIBCO Support but no-cost access to TIBCO Community is available as a support resource.
