Once Input Adapter Sample


This sample demonstrates the Spotfire Streaming Once Input Adapter, an input adapter that starts up and sends a single tuple as its output.

Importing This Sample into StreamBase Studio

In StreamBase Studio, import this sample with the following steps:

  • From the top-level menu, click File>Import Samples and Community Content.

  • Enter once to narrow the list of options.

  • Select Once input adapter from the StreamBase Standard Adapters category.

  • Click Import Now.

StreamBase Studio creates a single project containing the sample files.

Running This Sample in StreamBase Studio

  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 Once.sbapp file and click the Run button. This opens the SB Test/Debug perspective and starts the module.

  4. The Output Streams view shows the timestamp tuple that is sent on startup as output.

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

About This Sample and Terminal Windows

The Once adapter cannot be demonstrated using terminal windows, because it sends its single tuple as soon as the application starts in StreamBase Server. By the time we might be able to start a dequeue session to see the output on OutputStream1, the single tuple event has already occurred.
