StreamBase Systems, a provider of complex event processing (CEP) technology, has launched StreamBase Component Exchange, a venue that developers can access to download and share reusable components within a global community.
Developers can access the listing of components from the StreamBase Component Exchange website or within StreamBase Studio. Components are imported into the development environment where users can collaboratively extend their existing applications and test new ideas.
The StreamBase Component Exchange and all of its components are free and available for use by existing customers and anyone with StreamBase v6.x or higher.
Some of the components that are available include: adapters that connect in-bound and out-bound event streams to the CEP platform. For example, the Twitter adapter allows StreamBase to consume and produce Twitter “tweet” streams; Utility components, which are small operators or functions that extend the CEP platform; and Domain-specific algorithms.
“CEP has helped the industry to deal with ever-increasing data volumes and complexity while open source has helped many firms to find software development efficiencies. Bringing these two ideas together into an open-edge model could help drive collaborative innovation in the event processing space,” says Kevin McPartland, senior analyst at research company Tabb Group.
“The StreamBase Component Exchange will push the CEP market to the next level by providing a global, open library of technical innovation, where ideas can be exchanged freely. We created the component exchange based on customer demand, and are happy to facilitate the community and innovation that we’re building around event processing applications of all types,” says Richard Tibbetts, chief technology officer at StreamBase.
