Processing/Fields

 

 Basic settings

Editor

Opens the interface to create the JSON data structure. For more information, see Configuring a JSON Tree.

 

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.

 

 

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.

 

Sync columns

Click to synchronize the output file schema with the input file schema. The Sync function only displays once the Row connection is linked with the output component.

 

Group by

Define the aggregation set, the columns you want to use to regroup the data.

Warning

Make sure that the data to be grouped is in sequential order.

 

Remove root node

Select this check box to remove the root node from the JSON field generated.

Usage in Spark Batch Jobs

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

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, one and only one file system related component from the Storage family is required in the same Job so that Spark can use this component to connect to the file system to which the jar files dependent on the Job are transferred:

This connection is effective on a per-Job basis.

Log4j

If you are using a subscription-based version of the Studio, the activity of this component can be logged using the log4j feature. For more information on this feature, see Talend Studio User Guide.

For more information on the log4j logging levels, see the Apache documentation at http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/apidocs/org/apache/log4j/Level.html.
