Programming for IBM InfoSphere Streams V4 with SPL

Programming for IBM InfoSphere Streams V4 with SPL Course Description

Duration: 4.00 days (32 hours)

This course is designed to teach you 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. You will learn how to access data from an external source using the Source type operators and write an output stream using the Sink type operators.

You will then learn how and when to use the various Stream operators, like the Functor, Punctor, Aggregation, Sort, Join, Split, Barrier, Delay, and Switch operators. Lab exercises will use the InfoSphere Streams IDE that is based upon Eclipse as the development and testing environment, but you will get the opportunity to invoke the compilation of a Streams program from the command line as well. In the labs you will be given the choice to develop the applications using the SPL Graphical Editor, introduced in Version 3, that allows drag and drop or the original SPL Editor that is text based.
