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 for 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 eftl.sbapp file and open the Parameters tab of the file. Edit the CONNECTION_URL and AUTHENTICATION_KEY parameters for your eFTL connection.


    The Subscribe adapter is set up to subscribe to only messages containing a subject field; open the adapter properties and see the matcher field to change this setting.

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

  5. In the Test/Debug Perspective, open the Output Streams view. If the adapter can connect to the eFTL server, two Connected status tuples appear, one from each TIBCO eFTL adapter instance.

  6. In the Manual Input view, select the PublishIn stream and enter some information, then click Send Data. Additional tuples appear in the Output Streams view from the SubscribeData and PublishStatus streams, indicating the following:

    • The message was published by the eFTL Publish adapter.

    • The message was received by the eFTL Subscribe adapter.

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