Am able to create schemas from SFDC all day in Talend, no issues whatsoever. When I try to use any of them in a job, they fail with "The host did not accept the connection within timeout of..." VERY FRUSTRATING. This should be simple, but it appears to not be using the proxy settings inside a job. How the heck to fix this. Would love to use Talend, but this is a huge setback.
OK, this is really hard to believe, but, despite having a perfectly working connection with the proxy settings in tSalesforceConnection, they are apparently ignored in a job, and will time out every time the job runs. So, add a tSetproxy, with the EXACT SAME settings, and set its output to the tSalesforceConnection widget, and it will work. Crazy, but true.
