JSON to Tuple and Tuple to JSON Operator Sample

This sample shows how to use the TIBCO StreamBase® JSON to Tuple and Tuple to JSON operators.

Introduction

See the description of the operators' Properties views in Using the JSON to Tuple Operator and Using the Tuple to JSON Operator.

The sample application illustrate the use of the JSON to Tuple and Tuple to JSON operators. In this sample, the operator takes an input tuple and produces a JSON string, it then takes that string and produces a tuple. The sample is setup with a schema to try out various data types converting from tuples to JSON strings and back.

Running the Sample in StreamBase Studio

  1. In the Package Explorer view, in project sample_JSONTuple, double-click to open the Sample.sbapp application.

  2. With the Sample.sbapp application selected and active, click the Run button. This opens the SB Test/Debug perspective and starts the application.

  3. In the Manual Input view, select the TestInput stream and enter some values then click Send Data.

  4. In the Application Output view, observe a tuple dequeued on the JSONOutput and TupleOutput streams.

  5. Experiment by entering other values in the fields of the TestInput stream, clicking Send Data, and observing the resulting output tuples.

  6. When done, press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.
