    Default Kettle Newbie


    I am new to datawarehousing.I am planning to use Kettle.
    I have some doubts.
    Actually I am trying to build a warehouse using text files.I will receive data in text files every day.Using those files I need to build a warehouse on MySQL.
    Do we need to first load data into MySQL and tghen create dimensons and Facts.How can we create dimensions and facts?
    Anybody please help me.

    Best advice for you... rush to the store, buy "The Data Warehouse ETL Toolkit" by Ralph Kimball... the latest edition. And read it.

    On how to proceed... personally I would first load all files to staging tables so that you already have a first sanity check.

    Also look in the Kettle documentation look for the document "Building datawarehouses using open source technologies" ... it may give you a little more feeling with it.
