    Default Stream date field in Dimension Update

    Hello all,

    I'm using Kettle 3 GA.
    I have found a problem using a stream date field in the Dimension Lookup/Update step.
    Apparently the step takes the date value from the first record in the stream and uses this value as the change date for all subsequent records.

    I ran the same transformation in version 2.3.1. This version worked as I expected, using the date value from the record.

    Kind regards,
    Axel Hallez

    I was about to flame you in my usual style. But then I thought: hey this guy lives less than half an hour away from me, surely he wouldn't risk his life if he wasn't sure about himself...

    So I checked the code and low and behold, you're right!
    I just can't believe it, but it's there. I must have been completely stone drunk when I coded that part.

    Thanks in any case, I'll make sure it gets fixed right away.

    All the best,
    Matt

    To try the fix, download these files and place them in the 3.0 distribution "lib/" directory:

    http://kettle3.s3.amazonaws.com/kettle-engine-3.0.jar
    http://kettle3.s3.amazonaws.com/kettle-ui-swt-3.0.jar

    Please let me know if that fixes things for you, either here or in the bug tracker.

    All the best,

    Matt
