hi, I have a flat file that needs to be loaded into the database. I can use talend open studio in my dev env where I can specify the location ("hard code"). This location will be different for my production environment. How can I specify the location in the properties file so that when my standlone job executes it looks into the properties file.
Define a context variable 'context.PROPSFILE' and set it to your default dev location (say C:\dev). In the production environment, override the variable by passing in --context_param PROPSFILE=/opt/productionloc to the run script. Another option is to set up dev, test, and prod contexts and store three different values in the job. Then, select the environment with --context.
thanks, but how can I use this context? - for example I have my CSV file defined via metadata -> file delimited. When I create a job and create a tfileinputdelimited under the component basic settings -> filename/stream - i already see this been hard coded to my dev env. do you an example anywhere i can take a look at?
