  1. In the left panel, select the Graphs tab and navigate to com/sap/demo/messageGenerator.
  2. In the tool bar, select Run (play button).
  3. The Status panel indicates if the graph is running.
  4. Use the context menu Open UI of the terminal (1mnu) node to open the terminal.
  5. The terminal opens and you see the generated data.

Optional Step: See the Code for Data Generation
