Function

tSocketOutput component writes data to a listening port.

Purpose

tSocketOutput sends out the data from the incoming flow to listening socket port.

Clear this check box to skip the row on error and complete the process for error-free rows.

 

Field separator

Character, string or regular expression to separate fields.

 

Row separator

String (ex: "\n"on Unix) to distinguish rows.

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or stored remotely in the Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.

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: The schema will be 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 in various projects and job flowcharts. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

Encoding

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

Global Variables

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.

NB_LINE: the number of rows processed. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

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.

Usage

This component opens a point of access to a workstation or server. This component starts a Job and only stops after the time goes out.
