In this scenario, reuse the previous Job to load and apply a user-defined VSR matching algorithm.

As a prerequisite, follow the steps described in Creating a custom matching algorithm to manually write a custom algorithm and store it in a .jar file (Java archive). The mydistance.jar file is used here to provide the user-defined matching algorithm, MyDistance.class.

You will also need to use the tLibraryLoad component to import the Java library into the Job.
