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

The Standard tLoop component belongs to the Orchestration family.

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

Basic settings

Loop Type

Select a type of loop to be carried out: either For or While.

For: The task or Job is carried out for the defined number of iteration

While: The task or Job is carried until the condition is met.

For

  • From: enter the first instance number which the loop should start from. A start instance number of 2 with a step of 2 means the loop takes on every even number instance.

  • To: enter the last instance number which the loop should finish with.

  • Step: enter the step the loop should be incremented of. A step of 2 means every second instance.

  • Values are increasing: select this check box to only allow an increasing sequence. Deselect this check box to only allow a decreasing sequence.

While

  • Declaration: enter an expression initiating the loop.

  • Condition: enter the condition that should be met for the loop to end.

  • Iteration: enter the expression showing the operation to be performed at each loop.

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.

CURRENT_VALUE: the current value. Only available for a For type loop. This is a Flow variable and it returns an integer.

CURRENT_ITERATION: the sequence number of the current iteration. This is a Flow 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.
