Creating a StreamBase Project


In this topic, we will create a new StreamBase project. StreamBase Studio uses projects to store applications and their associated files.


Throughout this tutorial, we suggest names for projects, applications, and other resources files that you will create. We will refer to those resources using the suggested names, but you are free to choose other names.

Create a Project and Generate an Application

  1. Make sure that you are in the SB Authoring perspective, which presents the views most commonly used for editing StreamBase applications. The SB Authoring button should be selected in the Perspective bar, which, by default, is in the top right corner of the Studio window:

    If it is not, click the Open Perspective button and switch to the SB Authoring perspective.

  2. Invoke FileNewStreamBase Project or click the New StreamBase Project button in Studio's top-level toolbar.

  3. In the New StreamBase Project wizard Project name field, type MyFirstApp.

  4. Preserve the default location, EventFlow default settings.

  5. You can optionally clear the Maintain project settings option, because we will not be changing the default configuration settings for StreamBase Server.

  6. You can optionally clear the Enable support for compiling StreamBase Client API classes option, because we will not be adding custom Java components to our first application.

  7. Click Finish.

  8. If the Subversive Connector Discovery dialog pops up, click Cancel to dismiss it.

  9. Click OK to dismiss the confirmation window.

    Two stub module files are created. Both have the same name as the project, with .sbapp and .sblayout extensions. The .sblayout file describes your application's layout in the EventFlow Editor. Both are added to the Package Explorer view, and MyFirstApp.sbapp, opens in the EventFlow Editor.
