Developing Splunk app or add-on using java

New Member

Hi All, I am a newbie to splunk. I am trying to solve a use case and need to develop an app/add-on using java that sits and runs along with Splunk server.

Basically here is what I want to acheive.

1) Searching for decorated/annotated log data (I have a solution that decorates/annotates some events in debug logs that feed into splunk).
2) Do some processing using java on the search results to identify any abnormalities.
3) If an abnormality is found, present as such on the dashboard.

Can this be done using splunk app/add-on using java?

I think it can be done using Splunk SDK for java but that becomes an external application. I want to do it using a Splunk app or add-on.

Regards,
Srinivas

I will use any tool that supports developing java based add-on but in first place I am not sure if Splunk supports such an app/add-on.

@seagence is the data processing in Java or JavaScript? If you want to have your Custom Command can you use Splunk SDK for Python to create Pyhon Script that can create a Command in Splunk to be directly used in Splunk Searches? Refer to documentation: http://dev.splunk.com/view/python-sdk/SP-CAAAEU2

@niketnilay yes I have a pre built java component that does some processing on search results, which I want to run in splunk server. Can that be done?
