  • No authentication details are required in this use case.

  • The Method to be called is: examples.getStateName

  • Then set the input Parameters required by the method called. The Name field is not used in the code but the value should follow the syntax expected by the method. In this example, the Name used is State Nr and the value randomly chosen is 42.

  • The class has not much impact using this demo method but could have with another method, so leave the default setting.

  • On the tLogRow component Component view, check the box: Print schema column name in front of each value.

  • Then save the Job and press F6 to execute it.
