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

The Standard tJDBCConnection component belongs to the Databases and the ELT families.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products.

Note: This component is a specific version of a dynamic database connector. The properties related to database settings vary depending on your database type selection. For more information about dynamic database connectors, see Dynamic database components.

Basic settings

Database

Select a type of database from the list and click Apply.

Property Type

Select the way the connection details will be set.

  • Built-In: The connection details will be set locally for this component. You need to specify the values for all related connection properties manually.

  • Repository: The connection details stored centrally in Repository > Metadata will be reused by this component. You need to click the [...] button next to it and in the pop-up Repository Content dialog box, select the connection details to be reused, and all related connection properties will be automatically filled in.

JDBC URL

The JDBC URL of the database to be used. For example, the JDBC URL for the Amazon Redshift database is jdbc:redshift://endpoint:port/database.

Drivers

Complete this table to load the driver JARs needed. To do this, click the [+] button under the table to add as many rows as needed, each row for a driver JAR, then select the cell and click the [...] button at the right side of the cell to open the Module dialog box from which you can import the driver JAR to be used. For example, the driver JAR RedshiftJDBC41-1.1.13.1013.jar for the Redshift database.

For more information, see Importing a database driver.

Driver Class

The class name for the specified driver between double quotation marks. For example, for the RedshiftJDBC41-1.1.13.1013.jar driver, the name to be entered is com.amazon.redshift.jdbc41.Driver.

Use Id and Password

The database user authentication data.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

Use or register a shared DB Connection

Select this check box to share your database connection or fetch a database connection shared by a parent or child Job, and in the Shared DB Connection Name field displayed, enter the name for the shared database connection. This allows you to share one single database connection (except the database schema setting) among several database connection components from different Job levels that can be either parent or child.

This option is incompatible with the Use dynamic job and Use an independent process to run subjob options of the tRunJob component. Using a shared connection together with a tRunJob component with either of these two options enabled will cause your Job to fail.

This check box is not available when the Specify a data source alias check box is selected.

Specify a data source alias

Select this check box and in the Data source alias field displayed, specify the alias of a data source created on Talend Runtime side to use the shared connection pool defined in the data source configuration. This option works only when you deploy and run your Job in Talend Runtime. For a related use case, see Deploying your Job on Talend Runtime to retrieve data from a MySQL database.

This check box is not available when the Use or register a shared DB Connection check box is selected.

Advanced settings

Use Auto-Commit

Select this check box to activate the auto commit mode.

Auto Commit

Select this check box to commit any changes to the database automatically upon the transaction.

With this check box selected, you cannot use the corresponding commit component to commit changes to the database; likewise, when using the corresponding commit component, this check box has to be cleared. By default, the auto commit function is disabled and changes must be committed explicitly using the corresponding commit component.

Note that the auto commit function commits each SQL statement as a single transaction immediately after the statement is executed while the commit component does not commit only until all of the statements are executed. For this reason, if you need more room to manage your transactions in a Job, it is recommended to use the commit component.

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

ERROR_MESSAGE

The error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string.

Usage

Usage rule

This component is more commonly used with other tJDBC* components, especially with the tJDBCCommit and tJDBCRollback components.
