Getting Started

Overview

This section discusses how to get your Data Pipeline application up and running quickly. It assumes a working knowledge of your development and execution environment--it does not cover how to configure your build system or IDE.

1. Download the software

2. Uncompress the distribution

Extract NorthConcepts-DataPipeline-XXX.zip to a new folder. The jar tool works fine for this:

jar xf NorthConcepts-DataPipeline-2.1.0.zip.

3a. For Eclipse users

The zip contains an Eclipse project (.project and .classpath files) that you can import to get started right away.

3b. For non-Eclipse users

Add NorthConcepts-DataPipeline-XXX.jar along with the other jars found under the distribution's lib folder to your classpath.

4. Browse and run the examples

The examples on this site can be found in the examples/src folder in Eclipse or in the distribution.
