Adding the second component by typing on the design workspace

About this task

The second component of the Job will be added by typing its name directly on the workspace, instead of dropping it from the Palette or from the Metadata node.

Prerequisite: Make sure you have selected the Enable Component Creation Assistant check box in the Talend Studio preferences. For more information, see Using centralized metadata in a Job.

To add a component directly on the workspace, proceed as follows:


  1. Click where you want to add the component on the design workspace, and type your keywords, which can be the full or partial name of the component, or a phrase describing its functionality if you don't know its name. In this example, start typing log.
    Information noteNote: Components may not always have a prefix letter in the name. Therefore, as a best practice, you may want to simply specify the main body when searching for a component by its name.
    A list box appears below the text field displaying all the matching components in alphabetical order.
    Design workspace.
  2. Double-click the desired component to add it on the workspace, tLogRow in our example.
