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

The Standard tSybaseIQOutputBulkExec component belongs to the Databases family.

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

Basic settings

Property Type

Select the way the connection details will be set.

  • Built-In: The connection details will be set locally for this component. You need to specify the values for all related connection properties manually.

  • Repository: The connection details stored centrally in Repository > Metadata will be reused by this component. You need to click the [...] button next to it and in the pop-up Repository Content dialog box, select the connection details to be reused, and all related connection properties will be automatically filled in.

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.

When reusing an existing Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere) connection created by a tSybaseConnection component and loading data from a file located on the client side, you need to select Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere) from the DB Version drop-down list to display the Is client file check box before selecting this check box.

Note: When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, if you need to share an existing connection between the two levels, for example, to share the connection created by the parent Job with the child Job, you have to:
  1. In the parent level, register the database connection to be shared in the Basic settings view of the connection component which creates that very database connection.

  2. In the child level, use a dedicated connection component to read that registered database connection.

For an example about how to share a database connection across Job levels, see Talend Studio User Guide.

This property is not available when Sybase IQ 15 is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

DB Version

Select the version of the Sybase database to be used from the drop-down list.

  • For Sybase IQ 12 and Sybase IQ 16, the file to be bulk-loaded must be located on the same machine as the Sybase IQ server.

  • For Sybase IQ 15, the file to be bulk-loaded can be located on the client side, however, this means certain setup on the Sybase IQ server. For more information, see Sybase IQ client-side load support enhancements.

  • For Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere), the file to be bulk-loaded can be located on both the server side and the client side.

    Before loading data into Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere), SQL Anywhere 17 must be installed. You can download it here. Once the installation is done, you need to check the system variable Path to make sure the installation path of SQL Anywhere 17 has been added to it, and then restart the Studio (in certain case restart the computer) to have the new Path variable take effect.

Host

The IP address or hostname of the database.

This property is not available when Sybase IQ 15 is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Port

The listening port number of the database.

This property is not available when Sybase IQ 15 is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Data Source

Select the type of the data source to be used and complete the corresponding DSN information in the field alongside. The available types are DSN and FILEDSN.

When FILEDSN is selected, a [...] button is available next to the Data Source field to allow you to browse to the data source file of interest.

This property is available when Sybase IQ 15 is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Database

The name of the database.

Sybase Schema

The schema of the database.

Username and Password

The database user authentication data.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

Table

The name of the table to be written.

Action on table

On the table defined, you can perform one of the following operations:

  • Default: No operation is carried out.

  • Drop and create table: The table is removed and created again.

  • Create table: The table does not exist and gets created.

  • Create table if does not exist: The table is created if it does not exist.

  • Drop table if exists and create: The table is removed if it already exists and created again.

  • Clear table: The table content is deleted.

Filename

Enter the name of the file to be generated and loaded.

Is client file

Select this check box if you need to load data from the client side.

This property is available when Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere) is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Append the file

Select this check box to add the new rows at the end of the records.

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.

  • Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only.

  • Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs.

When the schema to be reused has default values that are integers or functions, ensure that these default values are not enclosed within quotation marks. If they are, you must remove the quotation marks manually.

For more details, see Verifying default values in a retrieved schema.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. Note that if you make changes, the schema automatically becomes built-in.

  • 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.

Advanced settings

Additional JDBC Parameters

Specify additional connection properties in the existing DB connection, to allow specific character set support.

Fields terminated by

Enter the character, string or regular expression used to separate fields.

Warning:

As a combination of tSybaseOutputBulk and tSybaseIQBulkExec, this component does not allow the use of Sybase-oriented row/field separators, such as \x09. To achieve the desired effect (for example, displaying fields in the tabular form), you need to use tSybaseOutputBulk and tSybaseIQBulkExec together to replace tSybaseIQOutputBulkExec, with \t used in the former component and \x09 used in the latter.

Lines terminated by

Enter the character or sequence of characters used to separate lines.

Use enclosed quotes

Select this check box to use data enclosure characters.

Include Head

Select this heck box to include the column header.

Blank as null

Select this check box to store the input zero-length varchars as NULLs instead of blanks in the database during the load operation.

On file error

Select the action Sybase performs when an error occurs:

  • Rollback (default): rolls back the entire transaction.

  • Finish: finishes the insertions already completed and ends the load operation.

  • Continue: skips the error and continues the load operation.

This property is available when Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere) is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Message log file

The path to the MESSAGE LOG file that saves the log information about integrity constraint violations, the types of violations, etc. It must be specified together with the Row log file property.

This property is available when Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere) is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Row log file

The path to the ROW LOG file that saves the log information about reject data, the timestamps of the start and completion of the load, etc. It must be specified together with the Message log file property.

This property is available when Sybase 16 (SQL Anywhere) is selected from the DB Version drop-down list.

Encoding

Select the encoding type from the list or select Custom and define it manually. This field is compulsory for DB data handling.

tStatCatcher Statistics

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

Usage

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table and fill the Code field with a context variable to choose your database connection dynamically from multiple connections planned in your Job. This feature is useful when you need to access database tables having the same data structure but in different databases, 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.

Usage rule

This component is mainly used when no particular transformation is required on the data to be loaded onto the database.
