XML input to tExtractXMLField and customize the output records

I am new to talend and putting lot of efforts to be proficient. I will explain my scenario with an example:
1. I am extracting data from a DB2 table and this table has 4 columns:

Column 3 XML_DATA

2. Finally, loading all the data into Hive table on the HDFS. Hive table format is as follows:

CREATE EXTERNAL TABLE IF NOT EXISTS SampleTable
(
Id Int,
IDB_Id String,
occ String
Status String,
Original_Retail String,
Id1 String,
occ1 String,
New_Item Array<Struct<Type: String,occ2: String,Code: String,Vendor_Description: String,Family: String,Style_Diff_Id: String,IDB_Id1: String>>,
Vendor_Style: String
)

3. "Column 3 XML_DATA" column is given as input to tExtractXMLField component. I was able to loop thru the XML to generate the output file in the following format (Multiple records for column 3 XML_DATA) :

273586991;0438554206218;331350659;A;16.0;3201550;331350984;SIZE;331350986;10880;XSmall;;;;3622223

Questions:

I would like to merge all the above records in the following format which is the structure of the Hive table. How do i do that?

Re: XML input to tExtractXMLField and customize the output records

Hello,

You want all of your outputs from tExtractXMLField to be merged together? In the form of a single column of output data?

Best regards

Sabrina
