How to create and use a job/transformation repository in GeoKettle?

| August 4th, 2011 | No Comments »

With the release of GeoKettle 2.0-RC1, various tools (wiki, trac, forum, …) have been set up and made available for supporting the community interested in open source projects hosted on and developed by Spatialytics.

This blog post initiates a series of documentation posts that should help users and developers in better mastering GeoKettle. It will be followed week after week by different tutorials, how-to, tips and tricks that will detail some specific and interesting capabilities offered by this open source spatial ETL tool.

This first post deals with the creation and usage of a job/transformation repository. It is a very powerful and exclusive but not so known feature of GeoKettle. A repository in GeoKettle lets you create a common workspace where to share jobs and transformations between different users across your organization. It is a practical way for some users to collaboratively work on a data integration process and to keep track of changes on the jobs and transformations during time. As it allows the centralisation of jobs and transformations in a shared repository, it avoids having different versions of a same transformation on various computers, which often results in the users finally do not know anymore what is the right and up-to-date version of the transformation.

To know more and especially how to create and use such a job/transformation repository in GeoKettle, please visit the associated documentation page on the wiki.

Hope it helps and do not hesitate to provide us with feedbacks or ask questions on the forum.
