REST Execution Mode

In REST execution mode, ksqlDB uses KsqlRestApplication as the ksqlDB REST API server (and expose REST endpoints to HTTP clients, e.g. ksql shell script).

REST execution mode can have security enabled.

ksql-server-start shell script is used to launch KsqlServerMain.

$ ./bin/ksql-server-start --help

        server [ {-h | --help} ] [ --queries-file <queriesFile> ] [--]

        -h, --help
            Display help information

        --queries-file <queriesFile>
            Path to the query file on the local machine.

            This option can be used to separate command-line options from the
