Set up example project and configure build
Full sources for all Cloudflow example applications can be found in the
examples folder of the
A typical Cloudflow application uses the organization shown below. We will implement the example in Scala.
In a convenient location, such as
my-cloudflow-examplecreate the following directory structure:
|-project |--cloudflow-plugins.sbt |-src |---main |-----avro |-----blueprint |-----resources |-----scala |-------sensordata |-build.sbt
As we move through the process, the leaf level directories of the above tree will contain the following:
project/cloudflow-plugins.sbt : contains the Cloudflow
sbtplugin name and version.
avro : the avro schema of the domain objects
blueprint : the blueprint of the application in a file named
resources : logging (
logback.xml) and sandbox configuration (
scala : the source code of the application under the package name
build.sbt : the sbt build script
From the top-level directory, initialize
git(after adding files you will commit them):
The Cloudflow sbt plugin assumes that your project is version managed using git. It will use git commit information to generate dynamic versioning for the Docker images it produces. If the project doesn’t have an initialized git index with at least one commit, some commands will fail with a
not a git repositoryerror.
Cloudflow provides sbt plugins for the supported runtimes, Akka Streams, Spark and Flink. The plugins speed development by abstracting much of the boilerplate necessary to build a complete application. You can use multiple runtimes in the same application. In this example, we use only the
CloudflowAkkaStreamsApplicationPlugin that provides building blocks for developing a Cloudflow application with Akka Streams.
build.sbtfile with the following contents and save it in at the same level as your
import sbt._ import sbt.Keys._ lazy val sensorData = (project in file(".")) .enablePlugins(CloudflowAkkaStreamsApplicationPlugin) .settings( libraryDependencies ++= Seq( "com.lightbend.akka" %% "akka-stream-alpakka-file" % "1.1.2", "com.typesafe.akka" %% "akka-http-spray-json" % "10.1.11", "ch.qos.logback" % "logback-classic" % "1.2.3", "com.typesafe.akka" %% "akka-http-testkit" % "10.1.11" % "test" ), name := "sensor-data", organization := "com.lightbend", scalaVersion := "2.12.10", crossScalaVersions := Vector(scalaVersion.value) )
The script is a standard Scala sbt build file—with the addition of the Cloudflow plugin for Akka Streams.
Add the Cloudflow plugin in
addSbtPlugin("com.lightbend.cloudflow" % "sbt-cloudflow" % "1.3.3")
Now, let’s define the Avro schema.
