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

The Standard tSQLTemplate component belongs to the ELT family.

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

Basic settings

Database Type

Select the database type you want to connect to from the list.

Component List

Select the relevant database connection component in the list if you use more than one connection in the current Job.

Database name

Name of the database.

Table name

Name of the table on which the SQL statement templates will be executed.

Schema and Edit schema

A schema is a row description, that is to say, it defines the number of fields that will be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either built-in or remote in the Repository.

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.

 

Built-in: You create and store the schema locally for this component only. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job flowcharts. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

Advanced settings

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at a Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or transferred to an output component. 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

As a start component, this component is used with other database components, especially the database connection and commit components.

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table and fill the Code field with a context variable to choose your HDFS connection dynamically from multiple connections planned in your Job. This feature is useful when you need to access files in different HDFS systems or different distributions, 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.
