    Default Text File Processing Issues in latest 3.0 RC2 preview

    The following text file processing issues still exist in the latest 3.0 RC2 preview that was posted earlier today.

    http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PDI-339
    http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PDI-336
    http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PDI-338

    These issues make it near impossible to use Kettle for text file based processing.

    Not at all. The "Text File Input" step has been known to load many exotic file formats.
    Also, as is pointed out in one of these bug reports, there is no real standard to work with here.
    As such there will always be files you can't load. Think about this for a minute. Think about why XML was created in the first place :-)

    Finally, The bugs are filed and we will fix what we can. There is no need to copy that data onto this forum.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Matt,

    I apologize for repeating the information. I just wanted to make sure that the issues were on someone's radar and got ahead of myself considering that I had just filed them recently.

    I agree that the Text File Input is able to load many formats and that it is a very flexible step. But it does have some shortcomings when dealing with certain types of data that it should be able to handle.

    Thanks and take care,

    -Dipin

    That's what JIRA is for. It's a case tracking system. Issues never leave there until they either get solved, rejected, flagged as not a bug, etc.
    The forum contains over 13000 messages. We ask people to file bug reports in JIRA because on the forum reports get lost. Not in JIRA ;-)

    HTH,

    Matt

    For reference, I consider the issues fixed.
