ActivFeed Input Adapter Sample

This sample demonstrates the use of the TIBCO StreamBase® Adapter for Activ Financial.

Sample Location

By default, the sample files are installed in:

  • On Windows: C:\TIBCO\sb-cep\n.m\sample\activfeed

  • On UNIX: /opt/tibco/sb-cep/n.m/sample/activfeed

  • On Mac: /Applications/tibco StreamBase/n.m.x/sample/activfeed

When you load the sample into StreamBase Studio, Studio copies the sample project's files to your Studio workspace. TIBCO recommends that you use the workspace copy of the sample, especially on UNIX, where you may not have write access to /opt/tibco/sb-cep. In the default installation, the path to this sample in your Studio workspace is:

UNIX and Mac:
  C:\Users\username\Documents\StreamBase Studio n.m Workspace\

Preparing to Run the Sample

  1. Obtain/edit the ServiceLocation.xml file for your Activ Content Gateway (ACG) server location, and determine the username and password to access it.

  2. If you want to subscribe to one or more symbols when the adapter starts, add the appropriate lines to the initial subscription file, <presubscribe.csv>. This file contains a number of example subscriptions you can use as a starting point.

Running This Sample in StreamBase Studio

  1. In the Package Explorer, double-click to open the activfeed.sbapp application. Make sure the application is the currently active tab in the EventFlow Editor.

  2. Double-click the ActivFeed icon to open the StreamBase Properties view for the adapter.

  3. Click the Adapter Settings tab and enter values for the ActivFeed ServiceLocation.xml pathname as well as a username and password with your ActivFeed account UserID and password, respectively. Also, edit or replace the ServiceLocation.xml file with entries that you have for your ActivFeed account. (Connect to the ActivFeed server that will provide data that matches your account type.)

  4. Optional: Edit the presubscribe.csv file with symbols and relationships of interest. Refer to Activ documentation for the symbology, relationship names (typical: NONE, OPTION, FUTURE) and table names ("all" is generally sufficient).

  5. Click the Edit Schema tab and, optionally, change the set of fields you would like to have appear in the market data output tuples.

  6. Click the Run button. This opens the SB Test/Debug perspective and starts the application.

  7. In the Test/Debug Perspective, open the Console view. If it is not already open: click WindowShow ViewConsole. If the adapter connects successfully, you see a single message like the following:

    [notice] sbd at hostname:10000; pid=4568; Listening

  8. Optional (if not using the presubscribe.csv file): In the Manual Input view, select the subscribe stream, and, in the subscribe, fill in the command, symbol, relationships, and tables fields, respectively, enter subeq, MSFT.Q, NONE, and all. Then click Send Data.

  9. In the Application Output view, observe the tuples emitted from the MarketDataOutputStream stream.

  10. When done, press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.
