Publishing and Consuming JMS Messages from Tibco Enterprise Message Service (JMS) with Apache NiFi

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service
I tested this against the most recent release of TIBCO Enterprise Message Service and their JMS driver available via trial download. I followed the very easy install directions. I downloaded it to a Centos 7 server.
Expanded my download to TIB_ems-dev_8.4.0_linux_x86_64
Then made it executable and ran TIBCOUniversalInstaller-lnx-x86-64.bin --console.
I used all the defaults (I picked server and client) and then quickly ran the finished install server.
Running Tibco on Centos 7
  1. cd /opt/tibco/ems/8.4/bin/
  2. ./tibemsd64 -config ~/TIBCO_HOME/tibco/cfgmgmt/ems/data/tibemsd.conf
Example JMS Queue Settings
  1. URL: tcp://servername:7222
  3. class: com.tibco.tibjms.TibjmsQueueConnectionFactory
  5. Directory: /opt/tibco/ems/8.4/lib/
I believe it just uses these files from that directory:
  • tibjms.jar
  • jms-2.0.jar
Once I have my server and port shown, it's easy to add those settings to Apache NiFi.
The settings I need to Publish messages is below.
After you enter your username and queue, you need to create (or use) a controller service.
Then we use our settings for our server, mine are the default ones. Make sure you enter the lib directory containing your jars and that it is on the Apache NiFi server and Apache NiFi user has permissions to read them.
You can also use this same controller to Consume JMS messages from TIBCO EMS.
These are example metadata attributes that Apache NiFi provides to you on message receipt.

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice In Part 1, we will setup our drone, our communication environment, capture the data and do initial analysis. We will eventually grab live video stream for object detection, real-time flight control and real-time data ingest of photos, videos and sensor readings. We will have Apache NiFi react to live situations facing the drone and have it issue flight commands via UDP. In this initial section, we will control the drone with Python which can be triggered by NiFi. Apache NiFi will ingest log data that is stored as CSV files on a NiFi node connected to the drone's WiFi. This will eventually move to a dedicated embedded device running MiniFi. This is a small personal drone with less than 13 minutes of flight time per battery. This is not a commercial drone, but gives you an idea of the what you can do with drones. Drone Live Communications for Sensor Readings and Drone Control You must connect t

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1 With the latest version of Apache NiFi, you can now directly convert XML to JSON or Apache AVRO, CSV or any other format supported by RecordWriters.   This is a great advancement.  To make it even easier, you don't even need to know the schema before hand.   There is a built-in option to Infer Schema. The results of an RSS (XML) feed converted to JSON and displayed in a slack channel. Besides just RSS feeds, we can grab regular XML data including XML data that is wrapped in a Zip file (or even in a Zipfile in an email, SFTP server or Google Docs).
