Using LiveView Clients

The TIBCO® LiveView product family includes both server and client components:

TIBCO LiveView Web

TIBCO LiveView™ Web is a browser-based application that allows you to create a rich display of cards that visualize data from queries and to create actions against a LiveView server. It displays data in a variety of real-time charting formats, and supports extensions such as custom visuals using JavaScript. Cards are created and laid out in pages, with each card presenting the results of a continuous query against the LiveView server in a variety of visualizations and data displays.

Your LiveView project in Studio must be configured to support LiveView Web as a client. See Configuring LiveView to Use LiveView Web for details.

Use a standard HTTP URL in your browser to view LiveView Web enabled pages. For example, use http://localhost:11080/lvweb or https://localhosts:10443/lvweb for security-enabled servers.

Starting with release 10.1.0, TIBCO LiveView includes a copy of TIBCO LiveView™ Web Standard Edition, with restricted licensing terms. Read about LiveView Web in the documentation for TIBCO LiveView™ Web Enterprise Edition on

LiveView Server REST API

LiveView server presents a built-in REST API interface that allows you to query the server with simple URLs in a browser. See LiveView Server REST API for instructions.

TIBCO LiveView Desktop

TIBCO LiveView™ Desktop is a separately licensed client application based on Eclipse. See Connecting with LiveView Desktop to learn how to connect LiveView Desktop (if installed) to a running LiveView Server.


LiveView includes the lv-client command line tool that provides simple access to a running LiveView server. See the lv-client reference page for details.

Custom-Written Clients

You can write your own custom clients using either the LiveView Java Client API or the LiveView JavaScript Client API as described in the LiveView Development Guide.

LiveView Desktop, lv-client, and custom clients all access a running LiveView server with a LiveView URI such as lv://localhost:11080 or lvs://localhost:10443 for security-enabled servers.
