Editing addresses against a Melissa Data data file

This Job uses the tFixedFlowInput component to generate the address data to be analyzed, the tMelissaDataAddress component to analyze the input schema and validate, correct and standardize the US addresses generated by the tFixedFlowInput component and a tLogRow component to output the correct formatted addresses on the console.

This scenario applies only to Talend Data Management Platform, Talend Big Data Platform, Talend Real Time Big Data Platform, Talend Data Services Platform, Talend MDM Platform and Talend Data Fabric.

For more technologies supported by Talend, see Talend components.

Prerequisites to using the tMelissaDataAddress component

Before being able to use the tMelissaDataAddress component, follow these steps:
  • To retrieve longitude and latitude data and the GeoCode result codes, you must have purchased a GeoCode or a GeoPoint license.
  • To successfully execute a Job with the tMelissaDataAddress component, you must have installed Melissa Data with the GeoPoint and GeoCode data files.
  • Add the path to the folder containing the mdAddr library to the system environment variables. For example, export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:<path to folder containing> on Linux and PATH=%PATH%;<path to folder containing mdAddr.dll> on Windows. If the system environment variable is not set correctly, the following error is to be expected: java.lang.Error: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError.
  • On Linux, restart your computer after setting your system environment variables to take the changes into account.
