What to put as "Input Schema" for Custom Processors in SAM?

What to put as "Input Schema" for Custom Processors in SAM?

I tried to make a custom Processor for SAM. For testing purposes, I made a processor that just adds another field to a tuple with the name "wasHere" and value 1. This is the source code of the

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

import com.hortonworks.streamline.streams.StreamlineEvent;
import com.hortonworks.streamline.streams.exception.ConfigException;
import com.hortonworks.streamline.streams.exception.ProcessingException;
import com.hortonworks.streamline.streams.runtime.CustomProcessorRuntime;

public class ExampleProcessor implements CustomProcessorRuntime{

	protected static final Logger LOG = LoggerFactory.getLogger(ExampleProcessor.class);
	public void cleanup() {

	public void initialize(Map<String, Object> arg0) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub

	public List<StreamlineEvent> process(StreamlineEvent myTuple) throws ProcessingException {
		List<StreamlineEvent> liste = new ArrayList<StreamlineEvent>();
		myTuple.addFieldAndValue("wasHere", 1);
		return liste;

	public void validateConfig(Map<String, Object> arg0) throws ConfigException {
		LOG.debug("Config valid ");

Now, my problem is, after exporting the maven project as a jar file, I don't really know what to put as Input Schema or Output Schema because the processor shouldn't care what kind of tuple comes in. I then just used the Input Schema from the tutorial but I get the Error Message "Invalid data entered for Input Schema". This is the Schema I use:

  "name": "driverId",
  "type": "STRING",
  "optional": false

I did not add a config file because this processor is not supposed to get any configs.

EDIT: I tried using the source code from and it didn't change anything.
