This wiki provides a location for the TIBCO Streaming® family of products community to read and share how-to information with one another.


The TIBCO® Streaming Event Stream Processing (ESP) platform is a high-performance system for rapidly building applications that analyze and act on streaming data. Using TIBCO® Streaming, you can rapidly build streaming systems and deploy them at a fraction of the cost and risk of other alternatives.

The TIBCO Streaming product itself is a combination of the TIBCO StreamBase® and TIBCO® Live Datamart products. TIBCO is no longer licensing StreamBase and Live Datamart separately to new licensees. Further the Live Datamart name is phased out; that functionality will now be called simply TIBCO LiveView™.

The technology underlying the Streaming product family remains the same despite the product name changes over time. LiveView uses StreamBase technology for many of its functions, and they share the same extension programming language (EventFlow) and the same connectivity adapter set: a StreamBase Input Adapter is typically what is used to publish data into LiveView data tables when using LiveView application data sources and embedded publisher applications.

TIBCO Spotfire Data Streams is a Spotfire add-on product. That said, Spotfire Data Streams from a technology standpoint is exactly the same as the LiveView Server component of TIBCO Streaming, with a more limited licensed use scope. While the on-ramp to using Spotfire Data Streams for data analysts looks a bit different than it does for more traditional application developers, once past the beginning ideas all the learning and information on how to use, extend, deploy, and operate each product is exactly the same.

The TIBCO Streaming product family consists of:

TIBCO Cloud Data Streams (TCDS) is based on the same technologies as TIBCO Streaming. TCDS, however, is offered only as a hosted service and does not allow direct programmable access to most of the underlying StreamBase and LiveView functionality, and thus should be considered a separate product for purposes of learning how to build, use, and customize TCDS applications
