    Hi there,

    I guess jobs and transformations can be made reusable to some extent using variables and named parameters.

    Another thing to check out is sub-transformations

    Last thing that comes to mind is upcoming support for metadata injection, Matt seems to be working on it

    If you get dynamic with passing transform names into to a job, you can design more generalized sub-jobs that plug in various different transforms, enhancing re-usability of the jobs.

    Another way to reuse components is by sharing:
    steps, database connections, etc.
