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

The Standard tSocketInput component belongs to the Internet family.

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

Basic settings

Host name

Name or IP address of the Host server

Port

Listening port to open

Timeout

Number of seconds for the port to listen before closing.

Uncompress

Select this check box to unzip the data if relevant

Die on error

This check box is selected by default. Clear the check box to skip the row on error and complete the process for error-free rows. If needed, you can retrieve the rows on error via a Row > Rejects link.

Field separator

Character, string or regular expression to separate fields.

Row separator

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

Escape Char

Character of the row to be escaped

Text enclosure

Character used to enclose text.

Schema type and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description, that is to say, 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.

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 type

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

Advanced settings

tStatCatcher Statistics

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

Global Variables

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 read by an input component or transferred to an output component. 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.
