WebSocket Client Read and Write Samples

About The Samples

In this sample, the TIBCO StreamBase® WebSocket Client Read adapter and the TIBCO StreamBase WebSocket Client Write adapter work together to read data from a server, modify it, and write it back to the server.

When this sample is started a web server is created on port 8080.

Running The Samples in StreamBase Studio

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

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

  3. In the Manual Input window under the Feed stream, enter Equity, Bid, BidSize, Ask, and AskSize data and click send.

  4. In the Application Output view, observe a tuple emitted on the ReadAdapterDataOut stream indicating that the WebSocket Client Read adapter successfully read data from the server. Also notice that on the WebSocketDataIn stream, a tuple is entered with the Data field reading "This data was written by an adapter" followed by the data entered in the manual input window, indicating that the WebSocket Client Write adapter successfully wrote data to the server.

  5. Press F9 or click the Stop Running Application button.
