    Default Variable number of parameters

    Hi,Please consider my usecase(They will never get over..We have 19...).

    Input to kettle are,

    Variable number of rows but fix number of columns,as array or as list.


    doKettle(1,bush,false@2,osama,true@ , 2)
    (@ separate data row , separate data column)
    2 specify thr are 2 rows.

    But the number of elements are variable,though they can be determined while passing to kettle.2 can be 3 or any thing.

    Now I want a file to be generated, which have separation of fields like,

    id name status
    1 bush true
    2 osama false

    How can I..

    I have done some thing like,

    Get Variable step: It has empGroup array(string type)
    Java Script: I can have variables.

    Then i can split array based on @.

    Here trouble comes.I have to declare each variables.Where as they are dynamic..more so ever..i have to declare each in JAVA Script tabs.Other wise they will loose their scope in next step.

    How to overcome that?

    I m using kettle 2.5 . N i dont mind to use Kettle 3.0 (if it runs on my machine).May be I m missing very small thing...small n silly....The same thing we are doing for more then 4 use cases...So I m facing really critical problem.Please help me out...

    Thanx in advance...
