Hello, I have created a Talend Job in TOS 4.0.1 that connects to various e-mail accounts using the tPOP component and downloads the emails locally, fairly simple and straight forward. The problem that I am encountering is that the tPOP component errors out if there is a connection failure or timeout, and the TOS job quits. What I would like to do is have the job not quit, but rather retry the POP connection a few more times or until it is successful, however when I try to do processing to catch the error based on component error, the job still quites. I also noticed that TOS does not easily allow you to loop back to an earlier part of the process flow. So basically, I would like to catch the tPOP component error. If the error has to do with authentication, ssl handshake, etc., move on to the next e-mail account in the list to process, but if the error is a connection timeout then retry the connection for the account that just failed. I appreciate any suggestions, recommendations, or insights on the best way to go about handling this. I hope this makes sense and that someone can help. Please let me know if you require further details. Thanks, Tim.
Hello Put the tPop process into a child job, use a tRunJob to call the child job in father job, uncheck the box 'die on error' on tRunJob. eg: father job: tFileInputDelimited---main--->tFlowToIterate--iterate---tRunJob child job: tPop tFileInputDelimited: read all the account from a file tFlowToIterate: iterate each account tRunJob: call the child job, pass each account to child job by context variable(see 1654). Best regards Shong

Hello, I have a slightly differnent requirement for the retry loop. My requirement is: When a child job fails, try again. If it succeeds after retry, report the whole Father job as success. If not, try again. If the child job still fails after these 3 tries, report Failure. Otherwise, report success. By uncheck "die on error", the child job gets executed 3 times. However, if all 3 tries fail, the exit code is still 0. I want to know how I can set the exit code to 1 (report error) after the 3 failed attempts. Thanks for your help. C. Long
