    Default REST webservices call

    I need to call a REST webservice for each row i have.

    I use the XMl input step to call the webservice. Thi file has the following format:

    http://local.yahooapis.com/MapsServi...ntry=${country}

    To parameterize the url i thought i could use the variblaes. ${street}

    If i use the set variable step, i can set the value of the variables.

    If i take a file table input step to get more variables ad feed it into the set variable step, i only get 1 row. How can i feed the variables i get from the table input step in the URL

    You need at minimum the separation into two transformations and one job to connect for your use case.
    Look in the directory samples\jobs in your Kettle distribution.
    BTW: It's a very good use case to use the http:location as a file input via VFS for the XML input!!!
    HTH,
