Is there any way session variables can be handled in Kettle

Not yet, it should be ready in a couple of weeks though.
The idea is to have a Step that does this and takes a single row of data.
You can then set environment variables based on the values in the row.

You should see this in the context of a job however: One transformation sets the variables, another uses them. (or a job uses them)
That is because there is no way to set the order of execution in a transformation. (and I want to keep it that way)

HTH,

Matt

Fantastic, this could simplify jobs.
