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

The Standard tMaxDBInput component belongs to the Databases family.

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

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. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

This component offers the advantage of the dynamic schema feature. This allows you to retrieve unknown columns from source files or to copy batches of columns from a source without mapping each column individually. For further information about dynamic schemas, see Talend Studio User Guide.

This dynamic schema feature is designed for the purpose of retrieving unknown columns of a table and is recommended to be used for this purpose only; it is not recommended for the use of creating tables.

 

Built-in: The schema is 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. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

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.

Table name

Type in the table name.

Query type and Query

Enter your DB query paying particularly attention to properly sequence the fields in order to match the schema definition.

If using the dynamic schema feature, the SELECT query must include the * wildcard, to retrieve all of the columns from the table selected.

Guess Query

Click the Guess Query button to generate the query which corresponds to your table schema in the Query field.

Guess schema

Click the Guess schema button to retrieve the table schema.

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows processed. 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.
