This sample demonstrates the use of the TIBCO StreamBase® CSV Socket Reader to read CSV data from a TCP socket. The CSV Socket
Reader is configured to connect to a server running on port 9000 of the local computer to read CSV data. The sample comes
with a very simple server written in Java. The source code and compiled JAR of this server can be found in the sample's directory.
The server simply listens on port 9000 and serves the contents of a file at one line per second to any connections. The default
input file is
input.txt, but you can specify a different file on the command line that starts the server.
In StreamBase Studio, import this sample with the following steps:
From the top-level menu, click→ .
csvsto narrow the list of options.
Select CSV Socket Input Adapter from the StreamBase Standard Adapters category.
StreamBase Studio creates a project for the sample.
Open a terminal window on UNIX, or a StreamBase Command Prompt on Windows, outside of StreamBase Studio.
In the window, navigate to your workspace copy of the sample, as described above
In the window, compile the sample server with this command:
In the window, run the sample server with this command:
java -cp src\main\java com.sample.adapter.csvsocketreader.SimpleServer
In the Project Explorer, open the sample you just loaded.
Open the package folder (most samples contain a single package folder. Open the top-level package folder if your sample contains more than one folder).
If you see red marks, wait a moment for the project in Studio to load its features.
If red marks do not resolve themselves in a moment, select the project and right-click→ from the context menu.
As the server sends lines of the input file to the application, they will appear in the Output Streams view.
When done, press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.
In the window running
simpleserver, press Ctrl+C to stop the server.
When you load the sample into StreamBase Studio, Studio copies the sample project's files to your Studio workspace, which is normally part of your home directory, with full access rights.
Load this sample in StreamBase Studio, and thereafter use the Studio workspace copy of the sample to run and test it, even when running from the command prompt.
Using the workspace copy of the sample avoids permission problems. The default workspace location for this sample is:
