Client Library Samples

This sample category demonstrate how to work with the StreamBase Client libraries to create client programs.

Topic Description

The module uses abstract schemas for its input stream and Query Table that become concrete schemas in actual use.
Decision Table Operator Sample Demonstrates the decision table operator.
Shared Tables Across Containers Sample Demonstrates how applications running in separate containers can access the same Query Table. In the sample, one application creates a table, a second one writes to the table, and a third one reads from the table.
Field Grids Sample Demonstrates how to avoid or resolve conflicts, ambiguities and typechecking errors related to including and adding fields with names that conflict and related usage of declared local variables.

High Availability Samples

This category of samples demonstrate best practices for implementing highly available clusters of StreamBase Servers. They show how to separate the high availability logic from the rest of the application logic, and show design patterns you can use to address specific high-availability requirements. The samples also demonstrate how to specify automatic high availability, and how to set the properties for a Query Table to use automatic table replication.

Topic Description
High Availability Sample

The HA sample shows how to enable automatic high availability for two StreamBase Server instances running together in a Hot/Warm high-availability cluster. The sample runs the same simple application in two servers, one designated primary and the other designated secondary. There are two parts to the sample: a basic sample and custom sample. There is also an application that you can run to examine how the HA Heartbeat adapter works.

High Availability Finite State Machine Sample

The HA FSM sample shows the use of a Finite State Machine (FSM) to deal with state transitions in an HA design pattern. The behavior of the sample is similar to the behavior of the HA Sample, but the implementation of the HA FSM sample is more powerful and complex. Also, unlike the HA sample, leadership status is not based on a setting in the startup script. The server that starts first is designated as the leader, and any server that starts next is the nonleader.

High Availability Shared Disk Access Sample This sample shows:
  • How to ensure that an application is running on one of two servers, where the application requires access to a disk-based Query Table.

  • How to test for the presence of an application in another container and start the application if it is not found.

  • How to use the External Process operator to run commands specific to high availability design patterns.

This sample requires a license that enables the use of disk-based Query Tables.

Query Table Replication Sample This sample shows the use of automatic table replication by setting properties for a Query Table and using the configuration file for the servers. The sample also shows a design pattern for table replication in the same setup without using automatic table replication. The design pattern is two servers in a high availability (HA) cluster. The schemas in the sample table are order schemas typically used in an application for trading.

Native Database Connectivity Adapter Samples

This sample category illustrates how to use the adapters that provide connectivity to certain databases using high performance database-native drivers provided by the database vendor, as opposed to standard JDBC connectivity.
