Thread: Kettle API question

  1. #1

    Default Kettle API question

    Hi there,

    I am attempting to integrate Pentaho transformations (built in Spoon) into a Java application. My transformations generally all start with a GetSystemInfo transformation that pulls an argument from the command line (this argument is the file that is going to be processed by the complete transformation).

    I have this working in a very hardcoded way (i.e. i assume my transformations demand a file name as their input), but I want to be able to check the TransMeta and figure out if it really demands an input file. I figure I start by called transMeta.getStep(0), but where do I go from there?

    Aside from the Javadoc are there any good example for navigating the most important Pentaho classes and methods?

    In the pentaho source code look for the component that calls kettle from xaction...KettleComponent is the class if Im not wrong
