    Default Docs :: Chef :: 1.9 Definitions :: hop - is this a bug or am I missing something

    Hi all,


    in the Cheft pdf doc incuded in kettle, I read this definition:

    Hop: a hop is a graphical representation of one or more data streams between 2 steps.
    A hop always represents the link between two job entries and can be set (depending on
    the type of originating job entry) to execute the next job entry unconditionally, after
    successful execution or failed execution

    (1.9 Definitions - p.8)

    Im puzzled by the term "data streams" I know that in spoon, hops represent data streams - at least, piplines through wich a streams of rows my flow.
    I thought that in chef, hops represent merely a sequential flow of control - NOT a flow of data.

    Now, I read that it is possible to make data resulting from a transformation accessible in a job, but because there is no data flowing at all if you don't do that, it seems that a hop in chef is at least not primarily a data stream.

    Or am I missing something?

    kind regards, Roland

    As Kettle is in feature freeze now, I'm updating the docs.
    I'll make sure the change this section as well.

    Please just add bug reports for this next time.

    Thanks!

    Matt
