Handling Geometry data types in Talend

Hello,

 

I have several jobs which interact with a PostGIS extended PostgreSQL AWS instance.  I have been handling Geometry columns by applying ST_AsText(geom) at the DB input query -- and after inserting the text representation of the geometry, I am using a tDBRow component to convert/update the geom columns with the new Geometry.

 

My questions are:

    Is it possible to directly insert a geometry object into PostgreSQL with Talend? 

    What is the appropriate way to do this? 

 

I have tried using type Object within the job flow (with DBtype POINT in the output component) with no success.

 

Thank you for the help.

Hi,

 

   Could you please try the details mentioned in below post? The post is discussing about Oracle DB but you will need minor modifications in that aspect.

 

   Could you please try and let us know your thoughts?
