tNeo4jBatchSchema Standard properties


These properties are used to configure tNeo4jBatchSchema running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tNeo4jBatchSchema component belongs to the Big Data and the Databases NoSQL families.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products with Big Data and in Talend Data Fabric.

Basic settings

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List drop-down list, select the desired connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.

This component supports Neo4j version V3.2.X only and does not support the remote mode. Therefore, do not reuse the connection to versions other than V3.2.X defined in a tNeo4jConnection component and do not select the Remote server check box in tNeo4jConnection.

Do not use a 2.X.X version and a 3.X.X version in the same Job. Otherwise, class conflict issues occur.

Database path

Specify the directory to hold your data files. If the specified directory does not exist, it will be created.

This field appears only if you do not select the Use an existing connection check box.

Shutdown after job

Select this check box to shutdown the Neo4j database connection when no more operations on Neo4j are going to be performed after the current component.

Alternatively, you can use tNeo4jClose to shutdown the database.

This avoids errors such as "Id file not properly shutdown" at next execution of Jobs involving Neo4j.

This check box is available only if the Use an existing connection check box is not selected.

Schema definition

Add indexes and unique property constraints to define the schema:
  • Schema type: select whether it is an index (Index on node property) or a constraint (Node property is unique) to be defined.

  • For node with label: enter, within double quotation marks, the label of a node.

  • On property: enter, within double quotation marks, the property of a node.

Advanced settings

Neo4j configuration

Add parameters to the table to configure the database to be created.

For further information, see Neo4j documentation: Configuration settings.

When entering values, use the syntax demonstrated by the examples given alongside the column names of this Nodes files table.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at the Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or transferred to an output component. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

This component is used standalone in a subJob to write a Neo4j graph schema.
