This scenario describes a four component job which allows you to link a table column with a client file. The MySQL table contains a list of all the American States along with the State ID, while the file contains the customer information including the ID of the State in which they live. We want to retrieve the name of the State for each client, using an SQL query. In order to process a large volume of data quickly, we use a PreparedStatement object which means that the query is executed only once rather than against each row in turn. Then each row is sent as a parameter. Note that PreparedStatement object can also be used in avoiding SQL injection.

For this scenario, we use a file and a database for which we have already stored the connection and properties in the Rerpository metadata. For further information concerning the creation of metadata in delimited files, the creation of database connection metadata and the usage of metadata, see Talend Studio User Guide.
