Most steps have multiple property pages according to the different categories of properties appblicable to steps of that type. In all cases, the name of the step may and should be modified to clarify the function of the step in the light of the entire ETL process. Most step types also have a separate property sheet to define the fields flowing in or out of the step. Kettle provides a a lot of different step types, and you can extend Kettle and plugin your own.
However, fundamentally, there are only three different kinds of steps: Inputs, Transformations, and Outputs.
Input Input steps process some kind of 'raw' resource, such as a file, a database query or system variables, and create an outputstream of records from it. Transformation Transforming steps process inputstreams and perform a particular action on it, often adding new fields or even new records to it.
This is then fed to one or more outputstreams. Kettle offers many transformation steps out of the box.
Some steps in this category perform very simple tasks, such as renaming fields; some of them perform complex tasks, such as normalizing data or maintaining a slowly changing dimension in a datawarehouse. Output Output steps are like the reverse of input steps: they accept records, and store them in some external resource, such as a file or a database table.
Hops In the graphical representation of the model, lines are visible that form connections between the steps. In Kettle, these connections are called hops. Hops between steps behave like pipelines. Records may flow through them from one step to the other. The records indeed travel in a stream-like manner, and steps may buffer records until the next step in line is ready to accept them.
This is actually implemented by a creating a separate thread of execution for each hop. Hops can be created by placing the mouse pointer above the source step, holding the shift button and then dragging holding the left mouse button and the shift button to the destination step. Hops may also be created by dragging the 'hops' node in the treeview onto the canvas. Then, A dialog appears that let's you select the source and destination steps from dropdown listboxes.
A Simple Recipe Now that these spoon concepts are introduced, let's see how they are used to actually create an ETL process.
Tip: click the picture to download the zipped data files and Kettle transformation if you haven't done so already. By just looking at the graphical representation of the model, most people will grasp immediately what the implied ETL process looks like. First, in the step named Text file input, data is presumably read from a text file.
From there, the data then flows into a step named Filter rows. There, a condition is checked for each record that flows through the input stream.
The records are then split into two separate streams: data that passes the filter, and data that does not. Finally, each stream of filtered data is written to it's own text file. Text file input Double-clicking the text file input step reveals a number of Property pages: File, Content, Error handling and Fields. The text file that is read for input is specified in the File tab. Use the Browse button to locate files. After that, hit the Add button to select the file for input.
A filename or pattern maybe specified that defines the files that are to be read. Here are the contents: Hello, World Welcome to Spoon! Actually, this way of specifying the file is not really recommended for production purposes. The filename is 'hardcoded' into the transformation, which is not convenient to deploy the transformation.
Check out this technical tip for a more robust method of working with input files. Use the Content tab to specify the format of the input file.
For this example, I modified the field separator to a comma, and I unchecked the header row option. Use the Fields tab to define the record layout.
You should be able to use the Get Fields Button, which tries to discover the record layout using data from the specified files. Although I've successfully used this function before, this particular setup seems to provoke a bug.
After that, you can rename the fields, and adorn them with more specific properties, such as type, length and format.
