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

The Standard tSAPHanaInput component belongs to the Databases family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products with Big Data and in Talend Data Fabric.

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.

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.

Note: When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, if you need to share an existing connection between the two levels, for example, to share the connection created by the parent Job with the child Job, you have to:
  1. In the parent level, register the database connection to be shared in the Basic settings view of the connection component which creates that very database connection.

  2. In the child level, use a dedicated connection component to read that registered database connection.

For an example about how to share a database connection across Job levels, see Talend Studio User Guide.

DB Version

Select the SAP HANA Database (HDB) version you are using.

Host

Database server IP address.

Port

Listening port number of database server.

Schema

Name of the database schema.

Username and Password

Database 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.

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

 

Built-in: The schema is created and stored locally for this component only. For more information, see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

Repository: The schema already exists and is stored in the Repository, hence can be reused. For more information, see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

Table Name

Name of the table to be written. Note that only one table can be written at a time.

Query Type

Either Built-in or Repository .

 

Built-in: Fill in manually the query statement or build it graphically using SQLBuilder.

 

Repository: Select the relevant query stored in the Repository. The Query field gets accordingly filled in.

Guess Query

Click the Guess Query button to generate the query which corresponds to your table schema in the Query field.

Guess schema

Click the Guess schema button to retrieve the table schema.

Query

Enter your database query paying particularly attention to properly sequence the fields in order to match the schema definition.

Advanced settings

Additional JDBC Parameters

Specify additional connection properties in the database connection you are creating. This option is not available if you have selected Use an existing connection check box in the Basic settings.

Trim all the String/Char columns

Select this check box to remove leading and trailing whitespaces from all the String/Char columns.

Trim column

Remove leading and trailing whitespaces from defined columns.
Note:

Clear Trim all the String/Char columns check box to enable this option.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to collect log data at the component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows processed. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

QUERY: the query statement being processed. This is a Flow variable and it returns a string.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.

Usage

Usage rule

This component is standalone as it includes the SAP HANA engine. This is a startable component that can initiate a data flow processing.

Support

tSAPHanaInput should be used to interact with the ERP part of SAP, including S4/HANA.

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table and fill the Code field with a context variable to choose your database connection dynamically from multiple connections planned in your Job. This feature is useful when you need to access database tables having the same data structure but in different databases, especially when you are working in an environment where you cannot change your Job settings, for example, when your Job has to be deployed and executed independent of Talend Studio.

The Dynamic settings table is available only when the Use an existing connection check box is selected in the Basic settings view. Once a dynamic parameter is defined, the Component List box in the Basic settings view becomes unusable.

For examples on using dynamic parameters, see Reading data from databases through context-based dynamic connections and Reading data from different MySQL databases using dynamically loaded connection parameters. For more information on Dynamic settings and context variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.
