This node reads data from a Spotfire Data File. It can read files from the local file system or from the Spotfire library.
It currently only supports SBDF files (Spotfire Binary Data Format).
The node also complies with the latest KNIME file writer standards and so you can use knime://knime.workflow/file.sbdf (to write to a location relative to the root of the workflow folder) or knime://knime.mountpoint/file.sbdf (to write to a location relative to the root of the workspace folder).
Note: Only SBDF files are currently supported!
To read from the Spotfire library, the URL must be in the format http(s)://spotfireserver:port/spotfire/libraryPath/file - note that there is NO file extension - do not put .SBDF on the end of the name of the file!
IMPORTANT! You must use the Spotfire application server (TIBCO Spotfire Server), not the web server (Consumer/Business Author). Also, you MUST make sure the url contains /spotfire/ immediately after the server name. Recent enhancements:
