Talend Component kit , is it possible to create a component with no Inputs and ouputs?

Hi Taco-kit team,

Is it possible to create a component that does some processing without making use of inputs and outputs in Taco-kit?   From the documentation, processing components can  only be of types output and processing in both cases  there is a default input data line, which  is required for the component to start processing, i have a use case whereby the component does some configurations without the need of any inputs or outputs. I thought i could make use of a processing component and connect a subjob ok, as boolean to its input and continue with the processing but this is also not possible. I am doing something wrong or is such a component  type not yet available in Taco-kit?

Thanks and 

best regards

Hello @Sam1,

 

Actually, we don't provide this kind of components in tacokit. The API only provides a way to create components that read/write and process data.

Hi Anas,

thanks for the info, so this means  the old way with javajet will be around for quite a long time right?, there is alot one can do with it as compared to tacokit.

The javajet will continue to exist as long as we have a component relying on it in the studio.

We strongly recommend using tacokit for writing data processing components.

For components that don't handle any data, you may continue to use the javajet.
Also, tacokit may provide an API for this kind of components in the future. But for the moment, it's not the case.
