This course is designed to teach the student about the Streams Processing Language. It will begin with the basic concepts of InfoSphere Streams and the basic Streams Processing Language operators used in a Streams program. The student will learn how to access data from an external source and write stream data to an external target using the adapter operators. The student will then learn how and when to use the relational and utility operators. Lab exercise demonstrations will use the InfoSphere Streams IDE that is based upon Eclipse as the development and testing environment but the student will get the opportunity to see the invocation of a compilation of a Streams program from the command line as well.
The second half of the course will show how to control the placement of processing elements and the debugging capabilities of the Streams Processing Language. Then the student will be introduced to the InfoSphere Streams Data Mining, Financial and Database toolkits. Finally the course will demonstrate how to extend the Streams Processing Language through the development of SPL native functions, SPL non-generic operators developed in C++ and Java, and SPL generic operators.
Training Paths that reference this course are:
This basic course is for those who are planning on developing InfoSphere Streams applications.
No prerequisites are required. However, use of an Eclipse-based tool would be beneficial as well as exposure to the C++ and Perl languages.
The minimum hardware and software required to launch the course are:
Network Speed Test
For example, a speed test against the server with a slow connection of 140 Kbps download and 28 Kbps upload took 14 minutes to load a 30min recording before the video began. Extrapolate from this result to estimate approximately how fast your network internet access would be.
High-speed broadband internet access is the recommended configuration for this course.
If you use a different character keyboard, you may experience errors when entering passwords. If possible, change your language/country settings for your keyboard to USA, which allows you to enter characters as in a QWERTY keyboard.
