tELTOracleMap – Docs for ESB 5.x



tELTOracleMap properties

The three ELT Oracle components are closely related, in terms of their operating
conditions. These components should be used to handle Oracle DB schemas to generate
Insert statements, including clauses, which are to be executed in the DB output table

Component family




Helps to graphically build the SQL statement using the table
provided as input.


Uses the tables provided as input, to feed the parameter in the
built statement. The statement can include inner or outer joins to
be implemented between tables or between one table and its

Basic settings

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the
relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.


When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, if you need to share an existing
connection between the two levels, for example, to share the connection created by the
parent Job with the child Job, you have to:

  1. In the parent level, register the database connection to be shared in the
    Basic settings view of the connection
    component which creates that very database connection.

  2. In the child level, use a dedicated connection component to read that
    registered database connection.

For an example about how to share a database connection across Job levels, see
Talend Studio User


ELT Oracle Map Editor

The ELT Map editor allows you to define the output schema and make
a graphical build of the SQL statement to be executed. The column
names of schema can be different from the column names in the


Style link

Auto: By default, the links
between the input and output schemas and the Web service parameters
are in the form of curves.

Bezier curve: Links between the
schema and the Web service parameters are in the form of curve.

Line: Links between the schema and
the Web service parameters are in the form of straight lines.

This option slightly optimizes performance.


Property type

Either Built-in or Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are
available in any of the Talend solutions.



Built-in: No property data stored



Repository: Select the Repository
file where Properties are stored. The following fields are
pre-filled in using fetched data.


Connection type

Drop-down list of the available drivers.


DB Version

Select the Oracle version you are using.



Database server IP address



Listening port number of DB server.



Name of the database


Username and

DB user authentication data.

To enter the password, click the […] button next to the
password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes
and click OK to save the settings.



Automatically set mapping parameter.

Advanced settings

Additional JDBC Parameters

Specify additional connection properties for the DB connection you
are creating. This option is not available if you have selected the
Use an existing connection
check box in the Basic


Use Hint Options

Select this check box to activate the hint configuration area to
help you optimize a query’s execution. In this area, parameters

HINT: specify the hint you
need, using the syntax /*+ */.
POSITION: specify where
you put the hint in a SQL statement.

SQL STMT: select the SQL
statement you need to use.


tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at a
Job level as well as at each component level.

Dynamic settings

Click the [+] button to add a row in the table and fill
the Code field with a context variable to choose your
database connection dynamically from multiple connections planned in your Job. This feature
is useful when you need to access database tables having the same data structure but in
different databases, especially when you are working in an environment where you cannot
change your Job settings, for example, when your Job has to be deployed and executed
independent of Talend Studio.

The Dynamic settings table is available only when the
Use an existing connection check box is selected in the
Basic settings view. Once a dynamic parameter is
defined, the Component List box in the Basic settings view becomes unusable.

For more information on Dynamic settings and context
variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the
component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This
variable functions only if the Die on error check box is
cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable
functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl +
to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio
User Guide.


tELTOracleMap is used along with
a tELTOracleInput and tELTOracleOutput. Note that the Output
link to be used with these components must correspond strictly to
the syntax of the table name.


Note that the ELT components do not handle actual data flow
but only schema information.

Connecting ELT components

For detailed information regarding ELT component connections, see Connecting ELT components.

Mapping and joining tables

In the ELT Mapper, you can select specific columns from input schemas and include
them in the output schema.

For detailed information regarding the table schema mapping and joining, see Mapping and joining tables.


When you need to join a lot of tables or need to join tables by multiple join
conditions with outer joins, it is recommended to use the LEFT OUTER JOIN (+) and the RIGHT OUTER
JOIN (+)
options that allow you to use the Oracle private
keywords. For further information about these two private keywords, see the

Adding where and other clauses

You can also restrict the Select statement based on a Where clause and/or other clauses such
as Group By, Order By, etc. by clicking the Add filter
button at the top of the output table in the map editor.

To add a restriction based on a Where clause, click the Add
filter row
button and select Add a WHERE
from the popup menu.

To add a restriction based on Group By, Order By etc., click the Add filter row button and select Add an
other(GROUP…) clause
from the popup menu.


Make sure that all input components are linked correctly to the ELT Map component to
be able to implement all inclusions, joins and clauses.

Generating the SQL statement

The mapping of elements from the input schemas to the output schemas create
instantly the corresponding Select statement.

The clause defined internally in the ELT Mapper are also included

Scenario: Updating Oracle DB entries

This scenario is based on the data aggregation scenario, Scenario 1: Aggregating table columns and filtering.
As the data update action is available in Oracle DB, this scenario describes a Job that
updates particular data in the agg_result table.

  • As described in Scenario 1: Aggregating table columns and filtering, set up a Job for data aggregation
    using the corresponding ELT components for Oracle DB, tELTOracleInput, tELTOracleMap,
    and tELTOracleOutput, and execute the Job to
    save the aggregation result in a database table named


When defining filters in the ELT Map editor, note that strings are case sensitive
in Oracle DB.

  • Launch the ELT Map editor and add a new output table named

  • Add a filter row to the update_data table to set up a
    relationship between input and output tables: owners.ID_OWNER =

  • Drop the MAKE column from the cars
    table to the update_data table.

  • Drop the NAME_RESELLER column from the
    resellers table to the update_data

  • Add a model enclosed in single quotation marks, A8 in
    this use case, to the MAKE column from the cars table,
    preceded by a double pipe.

  • Add Sold by enclosed in single quotation marks in front
    of the NAME_RESELLER column from the
    resellers table, with a double pipe in between.

  • Check the Generated SQL select query tab to
    be executed.

  • Click OK to validate the changes in the ELT

  • Deactivate the tELTOracleOutput component
    labeled Agg_Result by right-clicking it and selecting
    Deactivate Agg_Result from the contextual

  • Drop a new tELTOracleOutput component from
    the Palette to the design workspace, and label
    it Update_Data to better identify its functionality.

  • Connect the tELTOracleMap component to the
    new tELTOracleOutput component using the link
    corresponding to the new output table defined in the ELT Mapper,
    update_data in this use case.

  • Double-click the new tELTOracleOutput
    component to display its Basic settings view.

  • From the Action on data list, select

  • Check the schema, and click Sync columns to
    retrieve the schema structure from the preceding component if necessary.

  • In the WHERE clauses area, add a clause that
    reads agg_result.MAKE = 'Audi' to update data relating to the make
    of Audi in the database table

  • Fill the Default Table Name field with the
    name of the output link, update_data in this use

  • Select the Use different table name check
    box, and fill the Table name field with the
    name of the database table to be updated, agg_result in
    this use case.

  • Leave the other parameters as they are.

  • Save your Job and press F6 to run it.

    The relevant data in the database table is updated as defined.
