Basic settings

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or stored remotely in the Repository.

One read-only column, FIRSTNAMEMATCH is added to the output schema automatically.

 

Built-in: The schema will be created and stored locally for this component only. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

Repository: The schema already exists and is stored in the Repository, hence can be reused in various projects and job designs. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

First Names

Use Gender

Optional parameter: select this check box and then from the list, select the column that contains the gender. This will optimize system performance and give more precise results.

Expected genders are M (masculine) and F (Feminine).

Optional parameter: select this check box and then from the list, select the column that contains the country ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 codes. This will optimize system performance and give more precise results.

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.
