TIBCO StreamBase Component Exchange

Introduction

In addition to the samples shipped with TIBCO StreamBase®, you can install and run components from the TIBCO StreamBase Component Exchange. The Component Exchange is an online repository of StreamBase applications, libraries, and utilities, created by StreamBase users and members of the TIBCO StreamBase team, made freely available to all users of TIBCO StreamBase.

Disclaimer

Unlike the samples shipped with TIBCO StreamBase, components in the TIBCO StreamBase Component Exchange are not supported, verified, or endorsed by TIBCO Software Inc., even when authored by a TIBCO StreamBase employee, partner, or affiliate.

You can download components from the Exchange in three ways:

Component Exchange from Studio

You can download components from the StreamBase Component Exchange directly into StreamBase Studio 6.5.3 or later.

To download components from Studio, invoke File>StreamBase Component Exchange from Studio's top-level menu. After an initial license page, a dialog like the following appears.

Open the Description section to read a summary of the components of interest. Use the Find in Title field to narrow the list of components to those whose titles match a search string:

Select the check boxes next to one or more components of interest, then click Finish. This downloads the components into Studio and creates a Studio project in the current workspace for each component.

Select the Download components in the background check box if you are downloading several components over a slow network connection.

Follow the instructions in the README.txt file in the component's project folder.

Component Exchange from Website

You can download components from the StreamBase Component Exchange website, and can import downloaded components into StreamBase 6.4 or later.

To import a downloaded component into Studio:

  1. In Studio, invoke File>Import.

  2. In the Import dialog, select General>Existing Projects into Workspace and click Next.

  3. In the next dialog page, select Select archive file and browse for the zip file you downloaded from the Component Exchange's web page.

  4. Click Finish. The component's files are loaded into the current Studio workspace as a project.

  5. Follow the instructions in the README.txt file in the component's project folder.

Site-Specific Component Exchange

Studio Preferences in Window>Preferences>StreamBase Studio have the setting Use custom Component Exchange URL. Use this field to specify an alternate URL that contains an in-house or company-specific location for downloading StreamBase components. Contact TIBCO StreamBase Technical Support for guidance in setting up an in-house component exchange site.

Site-specific Component Exchange URLs can use the HTTPS protocol, in which case Studio prompts you for access credentials on the specified server.
