Package stream processing function into deployable archive

Since R2022b

    This function requires Streaming Data Framework for MATLAB® Production Server™ and MATLAB Compiler SDK™.


    filePath = streamingDataCompiler(streamFcn,inStream,outStream) creates a MATLAB Compiler SDK project file and opens the Production Server Compiler (MATLAB Compiler SDK) app. Use this app to package the streaming function into a deployable archive for MATLAB Production Server.

    streamingDataCompiler returns the full path to the project file.


    filePath = streamingDataCompiler(streamFcn,inStream,outStream,Name=Value) sets additional options for packaging the function.

    For example, if you specify OutputType="Archive", the streamingDataCompiler function returns a deployable archive (CTF file) instead of a project file.

    Assume that you have a Kafka® server running at the network address that has a topic RecamanSequence.

    Also assume that you have a streaming analytic function recamanSum and a function initRecamanSum to initialize persistent state.

    Create a KafkaStream object connected to the RecamanSequence topic.

    ks = kafkaStream("",9092,"RecamanSequence");

    Create another KafkaStream object to write the results of the streaming analytic function to a different topic called RecamanSequenceResults.

    outks = kafkaStream("",9092,"RecamanSequenceResults");

    Package the streaming analytic function recamanSum into a deployable archive. Since the analytic function uses the state initialization function initRecamanSum, also specify the StateStore property as an input argument.

    file = streamingDataCompiler(@recamanSum,ks,outKS, ...
    file = 

    The package function generates a MATLAB project file based on the eventStreamProcessor object, returns the path to this file, and opens this project file with the Production Server Compiler (MATLAB Compiler SDK) app. The project file contains values for:

    • The streaming analytic function, recamanSum.m

    • The entry point function, streamfcn.m

    • The deployable archive, RecamanSum.ctf

    To modify the list of deployed functions or the name of the generated archive, see Customize Application and Its Appearance (MATLAB Compiler SDK).

    Production Server Compiler app UI with default values for streaming function and archive name.

    In the Production Server Compiler, click Package to generate the deployable archive. You can deploy the generated archive to MATLAB Production Server. For more information on deploying to MATLAB Production Server, see Deploy Archive to MATLAB Production Server.

    Input Arguments

    collapse all

    Streaming analytic function, specified as a function handle, string, or character vector.

    Data Types: function_handle | string | char

    Event stream from which the streaming analytic function reads events, specified as a stream connector object, such as KafkaStream or TestStream.

    Event stream from which the streaming analytic function reads events, specified as a stream connector object, such as KafkaStream or TestStream. InMemoryStream objects are not supported.

    Name-Value Arguments

    Specify optional pairs of arguments as Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN, where Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

    Example: streamingDataCompiler(streamFcn,inStream,outStream,OutputFolder='J:\')

    Compile Configuration Options

    collapse all

    Name of the generated deployable archive, specified as a string or character vector.

    Data Types: char | string

    Type of file created by the streamingDataCompiler function, specified as one of these values.

    • Project — Creates a productionServerCompiler project file and launches the Production Server Compiler app. You can create a CTF file using the Production Server Compiler app.

    • Archive — Creates a CTF file.

    Data Types: char | string

    Additional files to include in the generated archive, specified as a character vector or string scalar for a single file or as a string array for multiple files.

    Example: ExtraFiles=["data.mat","/schema/registry/schema.json"] includes the files data.mat and schema.json in the generated deployable archive.

    Data Types: char | string

    Location of the generated file, specified as a string or character vector.

    Example: OutputFolder='J:\' saves the generated file in J:\.

    Data Types: string | char

    Flag to automatically open the project in MATLAB, specified as logical true or false. This property is incompatible with OutputType="Archive".

    Data Types: logical

    Execution Configuration Options

    collapse all

    Function that creates the initial state for the streaming analytic function, specified as either a function handle, string, or character vector.

    Data Types: function_handle | char | string

    Persistent storage connection name, specified as a string or character vector. You must specify a StateStore when using InitialState or when using a stateful stream function. The connection name must be known to the MATLAB Production Server instance to which the archive will be deployed. For more information on using a data cache for persistent storage, see Data Caching Basics.

    Data Types: char | string

    Flag to call the streaming function with events that have same key, specified as a logical true or false. Setting this flag to true splits an event window into subwindows with homogeneous keys and calls the streaming function once per subwindows.

    Data Types: logical
