    Default How to process a Kettle transformation once per filename

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to read multiple XML files from a folder, to compile all the data they have (all of them have the same XML structure), and than save that data MySql Database.

    I have already designed the transformation for reading XML files and process once per file using following link:

    I need to move the XML files which are already processed or write some logic so that already processed XML are no need to processed again.

    It would be really helpful if someone provide some useful suggestion.

    Thanks in advance, looking forward to reply.

    there are a bunch of trans steps and job entries to manage files. An option would be move each file to a "processed-folder", once you have read it.
    Give a look here and here. Other steps can also be useful for similar task, though.
