I have the need to create a custom component, which does neither emit nor process anything, similar to the component tDBConnection. Is this possible with the new Talend Component Kit?
If I use an Emitter, it says "Missing output connection for ..."
Hi @yoadey ,
This does not exists and any component must be connected to data somehow.
There are a few points to consider:
1. connection like components will likely be supported by the studio at some point (see https://jira.talendforge.org/browse/TUP-21090)
2. the challenge with such components is that they are not meaningful in the job in big data environment (it is not an actual node but a virtual component propagating its content to other components)
3. a trivial workaround is to emit some data (kind of summary)
Hope it helps,
