This sample demonstrates the usage of the TIBCO StreamBase® XML File Writer adapter.

Running This Sample in StreamBase Studio

  1. In the Package Explorer, double-click to open the XMLFileWriterTest.sbapp application. Make sure the application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

  2. In the EventFlow editor, click the XMLFileWriter adapter icon to open its Properties view.

  3. In the Adapter Properties tab, change File Name to point to a location on your machine where you want the log to be written when the application is run.

  4. Make sure the application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

    Click the Run button. This opens the SB Test/Debug perspective and starts the application.

Running This Sample in Terminal Windows

This section describes how to run the sample in UNIX terminal windows or Windows command prompt windows. On Windows, be sure to use the StreamBase Command Prompt from the Start menu as described in the Test/Debug Guide, not the default command prompt.

  1. Open two terminal windows on UNIX, or two StreamBase Command Prompts on Windows. In each window, navigate to the directory where the sample is installed, or to your workspace copy of the sample, as described above.

  2. In window 1, run sbd XMLFileWriterTest.sbapp.

  3. In window 2, run sbc enqueue InputStream1 < inputstream.dat.

  4. In window 2, run sbadmin shutdown to exit the server.

  5. The file specified in the File Name field now contains a log of tuples.
