Creating Your First Application

About This Task

The Streaming Analytics Manager provides capabilities to the application developer for building streaming applications. You can go to the Stream Builder UI by selecting the Streaming Analytics Manager service in Ambari and under Quick Links select SAM UI.

Creating a new stream application requires two steps: clicking the + icon, and then providing a unique name for the stream application and associating the application with an Environment.


  1. Click the + icon on the My Applications dashboard and choose New Application.

  2. Specify the name of the stream application and the environment that you want it to use to stream.


    The name of the stream application cannot have any spaces.


SAM displays the Stream Builder canvas. Builder components on the canvas palette are the building blocks used to build stream applications. Now you are ready to start building the streaming application.
