These properties are used to configure tModelEncoder running in the Spark Batch Job framework.

The Spark Batch tModelEncoder component belongs to the Machine Learning family.

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

Basic settings

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to Repository. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

An output column must be named differently from any of the input columns, because the successive transformations from the input side to the output side take place in the same DataFrame (the Spark term for a schema-based data collection) and thus the output columns are actually added to the same DataFrame alongside the input columns.

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.

Transformation table

Complete this table using columns from the input and the output schemas and the feature-processing algorithms to be applied on these columns.

The algorithms available in the Transformation column varies depending on the type of the input schema columns to be processed.

For further information about the algorithms available for each type of input data, see ML feature-processing algorithms in Talend.

Usage

Usage rule

This component is used as an intermediate step.

This component, along with the Spark Batch component Palette it belongs to, appears only when you are creating a Spark Batch Job.

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

Spark Connection

You need to use the Spark Configuration tab in the Run view to define the connection to a given Spark cluster for the whole Job. In addition, since the Job expects its dependent jar files for execution, you must specify the directory in the file system to which these jar files are transferred so that Spark can access these files:
  • Yarn mode: when using Google Dataproc, specify a bucket in the Google Storage staging bucket field in the Spark configuration tab; when using other distributions, use a tHDFSConfiguration component to specify the directory.

  • Standalone mode: you need to choose the configuration component depending on the file system you are using, such as tHDFSConfiguration or tS3Configuration.

This connection is effective on a per-Job basis.
