PDC Demos

Many of you asked for the demos we showed at PDC. Attached is a .zip file containing two applications of StreamInsight that Torsten presented in his talk:


  • Simple example of a StreamInsight query with a WHERE clause to filter out stock quotes from a random stock quote feed.

  • The feed currently just generates "IBM" and "MSFT" quotes. You can play with the WHERE clause in the LINQ query and filter on "IBM" or "MSFT" as the symbol.


  • More sophisticated StreamInsight application that uses multiple StreamInsight queries and outputs live results into Excel.

  • The random quotes feed is the same as in the SimpleMonitor. Use "MSFT" or "IBM" for the Ticker Symbol and "Stock", "NASDAQ", "US", and "NA" as values for the other filter expressions in the Workbench UI.

As a reminder, here are the links to the recordings and decks of our PDC talks, providing the context for these applications:

    I had been playing around with StreamInsight and felt a little lost. Both talks were great. I look forward to using it.

    So far I have seen nothing about StreamInsight with VB.

    Does it work in VB?

  4. Piyush,

    IObservable was not included in StreamInsight RTM – see also this posting: blogs.msdn.com/…/observable-adapter.aspx

    Thanks for the response.Sorry for delay in mine. Actually I was unable to run the sample shared here without Obsevable Dll. Can u suggest an alternate.

    Thanks team for your quick response and sorry for delay in mine. Actually I was trying to run the sample link given on this page. Can u suggest me an alternate to run this sample as it is not working without Observable dll Thanks

  7. RussTodd, I can confirm that StreamInsight does work with Vb.Net. As a DBA, I find it quite useful to be able to use StreamInsight to analyse a SQL Trace in real time using a Vb.Net console application.
