  2. Double-click the tJava component to open its Component view, and in the Code area, enter the code according to your needs.

  3. Double-click the tFixedFlowInput component to open its Component view.
  4. Click the [...] button next to Edit schema to open the dialog box and define the schema for the data to be used by the source system.
    In this example, add one new column col0 of the type String.
  5. After the schema is defined, click Yes in the Propagate dialog box to propagate the schema changes to the following component tBufferOutput.
  6. In the Number of rows field, enter 1.
  7. In the Mode area, select Use Single Table and enter "Paris" in the Value column that corresponds to the column col0 you have defined.
    In this example, the value of the col0 provides the agent region information to be retrieved by MDM.
