IRC Reader Input Adapter Sample

This sample demonstrates how to use the TIBCO StreamBase® Input Adapter for IP/IRC.

Note

This adapter uses the WinPcap libraries for Windows to tap into the IP packet stream. Before using this adapter with real-time data, you must install and configure these libraries on the system that will host the adapter.

Download and install the latest WinPcap MSI from http://www.winpcap.org. Use all the default settings for the installation. This adapter is not supported on macOS or Linux.

Running This Sample in StreamBase Studio

  1. In the Project Explorer view, open the sample you just loaded.

    If you see red marks on a project folder, wait a moment for the project to load its features.

    If the red marks do not resolve themselves after a minute, select the project, right-click, and select MavenUpdate Project from the context menu.

  2. Open the src/main/eventflow/packageName folder.

  3. Open the IRCReader.sbapp file and click the Run button. This opens the SB Test/Debug perspective and starts the module.

  4. Use an IRC chat client to retrieve a message from an IRC server.

  5. In the Output Streams view, observe that a tuple is emitted through the IRCReaderOutput stream.

  6. When done, press F9 or click the Terminate EventFlow Fragment button.
