    Default Simple xml file read and return


    I am new to Kettle and am having a LOT of problems getting started. My goal is just to read in a small xml file and post its contents to a website while passing through its authentication challenge. the xml message ellicits a xml response which I'd then like to save as an xml file.

    My first obstacle is getting a successful login to the web site. It works using a Firefox Poster extension and a small java app I've built but I can't figure out how to do it Via the Spoon application. Using the Http Client, I can elicit various http error responses, but using a HTTP Post - which I think is the more appropriate object - my database throes a java heap error. The site is a web accessible java-based database.

    I was wondering what are the appropriate objects to use to do this simple transformation?

    If it's only one call you want to make, Kettle seems to be overkill.
    But sure you can do what you want with a job, I think.
    Try the HTTP job entry in the File Management folder of the Spoon design tree.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
