This import bridge requires internet access to download third-party libraries:
- such as to download open source third-party libraries,
- and more sites for other third-party software such as database specific JDBC drivers.

The downloaded third-party libraries are stored into $HOME/data/download/MIMB/
- If HTTPS fails, the import bridge then tries with HTTP.
- If a proxy is used to access internet, you must configure that proxy in the JRE (see the -j option in the Miscellaneous parameter).
- If the import bridge does not have full access to internet, that $HOME/data/download/MIMB/ directory can be copied from another server with internet access where the command $HOME/bin/ (or .bat) -d can be used to download all third-party libraries used by all bridges at once.

By running this import bridge, you hereby acknowledge responsibility for the license terms and any potential security vulnerabilities from these downloaded third-party software libraries.

Generates Talend project in the Project directory from the source metadata.

Requires a working installation of Talend Studio 7.x or higher in order to interface with its API.

For Talend Studio 5.x, please be sure to follow these steps:
- specify a Talend Studio installation directory
- specify a project destination directory to export MIR model as a Talend project
- provide optional parameters according to their descriptions
- press the [Export] button
- open 'Talend Studio'
- Go to File-> Import menu
- Select General-> File System and click Next
- Browse to the Talend project folder that the metadata was exported to
- Specify a folder in the open Talend repository to import into


Refer to the current general known limitations at or bundled in Documentation/ReadMe/MIMBKnownLimitations.html

Provide a troubleshooting package with:
- the debug log (can be set in the UI or in conf/ with MIR_LOG_LEVEL=6)
- the metadata backup if available (can be set in the Miscellaneous parameter with -backup option, although this common option is not implemented on all bridges for technical reasons).

Bridge Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Values Default Scope
Talend Studio directory File directory where the appropriate version of the Talend Studio software is installed.
The directory must have the following sub-directories and files under it:

DIRECTORY     Mandatory
Project directory An empty file directory where the Talend project should be generated.

You can import the project into Talend Studio using the 'Import Items' menu option.

Warning: do NOT directly use an existing Talend workspace (e.g., $TalendHome\workspace\myworkspace) as the Talend project.
DIRECTORY     Mandatory
Report files directory Specify the folder where the report files (TalendExportStatistics.csv and TalendExportErrors.csv) are to be generated.

If this field is empty, the export bridge will place the report files in the '[Project directory]/process' folder.
The Date format Specify date format for your data. ENUMERATED
dd-MM-yyyy : common format #1
MM-dd-yyyy : common format #2
