Re: Difference between Main and Iterate

In the main,the same schema output would be copied from one component to next  component

 

In the Iterate ,it will execute no.of times the doumnstreem component based on the no.of records coming from the above component,where we define iterate.

Hi,
Use Main to transmit flow data to the next component which must be able to accept an input flow.
Use Iterate to iterate row by row over the next component which must be à startable component.
Refer to the following link for a complete information about different connector types https://help.talend.com/reader/lChEGrKIFb8DXl9sRsX~~A/NMzxcG7WNK7Ym7Ei6HkVHg
