StreamBase 10.6.2 Release Notes

These were the release notes for the TIBCO StreamBase® component of TIBCO® Streaming 10.6.2.

New Features

TIBCO® Streaming 10.6.2 adds the following updates and new features:

TIBCO® Streaming Now Bundles Java 11.0.11

Starting with release 10.6.2, TIBCO Streaming 10.6 runs only with and requires an installation of Oracle JDK 11.0.11 or a later JDK 11 version.

On all supported operating systems, the TIBCO Streaming installation kit provides the runtime components of Oracle JDK version 11.0.11 in a subdirectory of the StreamBase installation directory, for private use to run StreamBase program fragments and applications from within StreamBase Studio. As before, StreamBase detects and prefers a system-installed JDK, and uses the bundled JDK as a fallback. See further details about the JDK requirements of this release in the JDK entry of the Supported Configurations page.

New --exclude-supplied-checksums and --other-artifacts options for epdev deploy maven

Starting with release 10.6.2, the --exclude-supplied-checksums option can be used to allow Maven artifact deployment to certain artifact servers that do not ordinarily accept checksum files for artifacts. The --other-artifacts option for the install maven and deploy maven cases can be used to bring in other artifact sets to a Maven environment.

On a related note, Streaming artifact repositories no longer contain MD5 checksum files, which Sonatype Nexus Repository servers do not accept by default.

StreamBase Resolved Issues

This section provides a list of errors corrected in release 10.6.2 of the TIBCO StreamBase® component of TIBCO® Streaming.

Fixed in 10.6.2
Number Resolution
TIBCO StreamBase® 10.6.2 incorporates all fixes resolved in the release 10.0 series through 10.6.1 and all fixes resolved in the release 7.7 series through 7.7.8.

LiveView web could not be accessed from a default port value like 10080. It was blocked by all browsers.

This was resolved by running the application with a different port for discovered Kubernetes node services, like 8888.

SB-50773 The Apache Hadoop libraries used by several StreamBase adapters is version 3.2.1 and not 8.2.1.

'Public Key' property in Kubernetes discovery service for security has been added to support security.

This has enabled token-based authentication on the stopped nodes within cross clusters.All service properties now have explicit support for this.


A new property has been added to the TIBCO Spotfire Automation Services adapter to specify the MIME content type of the job's payload.

The value defaults to 'application/xml' and can be used to force a specific character set, for instance 'application/xml; charset=utf-8'.


Kerberos support requires that the user specify a configuration file (e.g., krb5.conf), and that this file gets copied to the builder container.

On Windows, the file may be named krb5.ini. It should be copied to the builder as krb5.conf.

The name of the copied file should be conveyed to the builder with the DataSource option:“kerberosConfPath” : <string>


TIBCO Streaming 10.6.2 now supports MS Visual Studio 2019, which TIBCO recommends for building C++ or .NET applications for Windows.

MS Visual Studio 2012 is no longer supported for Streaming clients on Windows.

SB-27948 Wix toolset has been upgraded to 3.11.2. This will be helpful for epbuild and should be downloaded with Maven.
