I have posted this one on javaforge.com (4131) and i don't know where is the good place :-) .

Pentaho data integration is designed to process records row by row.
Nevertheless, sometimes one need to do a bulk load of data (large volume).
I know we can do that with Oracle, Mysql, MSSQL and it will be very usefull to add an entry in Chef (i suppose).

The parameters are :
- Table Name
- Connection
- Filename,
- Fields separator ...
