    Default HTTP file / job input

    what is meant by HTTP file / job input support in Kettle 2.2.2? I cannot find an explanation in the documentation. How is it implemented?

    It's an implementation of URLConnection which can be either http, ftp, https, etc.
    It supports authentication, upload, etc.

    Basically, you give it an address to call and it returns the content in a file.
    The URL can be dynamic, constructed by a transformation for example.

    I'll make sure to update the docs for 2.3.0.

    Thanks,

    I have a file that I am trying to download via HTTPS. I have managed to build a transformation in spoon to create the URL that I need and can even save it to a text file, but cannot figure out how to pass that URL to the HTTP step in chef.
