Running This Sample in StreamBase Studio

The sample application must be configured with a valid SMTP server host name or IP address and, for the SimpleInputEmailSender adapter, a valid FromValue value and least one recipient: To, Cc, or Bcc.

  1. In the Project Explorer view, open the sample you just loaded.

    If you see red marks on a project folder, wait a moment for the project to load its features.

    If the red marks do not resolve themselves after a minute, select the project, right-click, and select Maven>Update Project from the context menu.

  2. Open the src/main/eventflow/packageName folder.

  3. Open the emailsender.sbapp file, right-click the FullInputEmailSender adapter icon, and select Open in the Properties View.

  4. In the SmtpServer property, enter a valid SMTP server host name or IP address.

  5. Right-click the SimpleInputEmailSender adapter icon and select Open in Properties View.

  6. In the SmtpServer property, enter a valid SMTP server host name or IP address.

  7. In the FromValue and To properties, enter valid from and to email addresses, respectively.

  8. Make sure the emailsender.sbapp application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

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

  10. In the Manual Input view, select the SimpleInput stream.

  11. Enter subject and body values and click Send Data.

  12. Use an email client to retrieve the message sent to the recipient entered in the to field of the SimpleInputEmailSender adapter.

  13. Repeat the last three steps for the FullInputEmailSender adapter. Note that with this adapter, the full set of email headers are passed to the adapter through tuples in the FullInput stream. Thus, there are many more fields in the Manual Input view. At a minimum, you must provide a valid from value along with at least one recipient: to, cc, or bcc.

  14. When done, press F9 or click the Terminate EventFlow Fragment button.
