Hi there

in kettle 2.4, if you click on every step there is option of data movement and it is two types

-->Copy data to the next steps
-->Distribute data to the next steps

what is that mean.????????????

and i see between two steps the hop(connection line) color is several types(black,blue,yellow,black,red). what is the mean of that?

is there any document or book about kettle.i got some pdf(Spoon_2_4_0_User_Guide.pdf) document.but it only describes the individuals steps separately but not together.

i don't see any document where we can have some real life example.

if there is more than output hop... copy will sent all rows to all hops, distribute will send each hop a row in turn.

Explanation of the hop colors is also in the user guide.
