These properties are used to configure tTop running in the MapReduce Job framework.

The MapReduce tTop component belongs to the Processing family.

The component in this framework is available only if you have subscribed to one of the Talend solutions with Big Data.

Basic 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. The schema is either Built-In or stored remotely 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.

Click Sync columns to retrieve the schema from the previous component connected in the Job.

 

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 designs. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

Number of line selected

Enter the number of rows to be outputted. The current component selects this number of rows down from the first rows of the sorted data.

Criteria

Click [+] to add as many lines as required for the sort to be completed.

In the Schema column column, select the column from your schema, which the sort will be based on. Note that the order is essential as it determines the sorting priority.

In the other columns, select how you need the data to be sorted. For example, if you need to sort the data in ascending alphabetical order (from A to Z), select alpha and asc in the corresponding columns.

Usage

Usage rule

In a Talend Map/Reduce Job, this component is used as an intermediate step and other components used along with it must be Map/Reduce components, too. They generate native Map/Reduce code that can be executed directly in Hadoop.

This connection is effective on a per-Job basis.

Note that in this documentation, unless otherwise explicitly stated, a scenario presents only Standard Jobs, that is to say traditional Talend data integration Jobs, and non Map/Reduce Jobs.

Hadoop Connection

You need to use the Hadoop Configuration tab in the Run view to define the connection to a given Hadoop distribution for the whole Job.

This connection is effective on a per-Job basis.
