    Default Kettle Plugins - Calling Other Core Steps

    I am trying to write a plugin, in which I need to include calls to other Kettle Steps. For ex (TextfileOutput, GetFileNames, GetVariable, ect). Is it possible to do that . Is there any sample code for that ?

    Sure it is.
    Create attributes in your plugins that are instances of the core steps you mean to use, then just use them as you please.
    I don't have any sample code, but you might wanna download PDI's source code and take a look at kettle-engine package org.pentaho.di.trans.steps.
    There you'll find each of the core steps plugin, meta and data classes.

    Good luck,
