tELTOracleMap – Docs for ESB 7.x


Builds the SQL SELECT statement using the table schema(s) provided by one or more
tELTOracleInput components.

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

tELTOracleMap Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tELTOracleMap running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard
tELTOracleMap component belongs to the ELT family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend

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.

Note: 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
    view of the connection component which creates that very database

  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 Guide

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 database.

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.


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 Password

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 settings.

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 are:

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.

Global Variables

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.


Usage rule

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.

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
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 examples on using dynamic parameters, see Reading data from databases through context-based dynamic connections and Reading data from different MySQL databases using dynamically loaded connection parameters. For more information on Dynamic
and context variables, see Talend Studio
User Guide.

Updating Oracle database entries

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


Adding components

As described in Aggregating table columns and filtering, configure a Job for data aggregation using the corresponding ELT components for
Oracle database – tELTOracleInput,
tELTOracleMap, and tELTOracleOutput.
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 database.

  1. Launch the ELT Map editor and add a new output table named
  2. Add a filter row to the update_data table to set up a
    relationship between input and output tables: owners.ID_OWNER =
  3. Drop the MAKE column from the cars table to the
    update_data table.
  4. Drop the NAME_RESELLER column from the resellers table
    to the update_data table.
  5. 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.


  6. Add Sold by enclosed in single quotation marks in front
    of the NAME_RESELLER column from the resellers table, with a double pipe in
  7. Check the Generated SQL select query tab
    to be executed.


  8. Click OK to validate the changes in the
    ELT Mapper.
  9. Deactivate the tELTOracleOutput
    component labeled Agg_Result by right-clicking it and
    selecting Deactivate Agg_Result from the
    contextual menu.
  10. Drop a new tELTOracleOutput component
    from the Palette to the design workspace,
    and label it Update_Data to better identify its
  11. 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.
  12. Double-click the new tELTOracleOutput
    component to display its Basic settings


  13. From the Action on data list, select
  14. Check the schema, and click Sync columns
    to retrieve the schema structure from the preceding component if
  15. 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
  16. Fill the Default Table Name field with
    the name of the output link, update_data in this use
  17. 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.

Running the Job

  1. Save your Job.
  2. Click Run to execute the Job.

    The relevant data in the database table is updated as
