Dear Kettle fans,
Besides refactoring and cleaning up code, I fortunately can write some new code once in a while as well.
Today, I’m happy to demo job drill down and step sniff testing for you.
The first feature, Job drill down, allows you to drill down into a running job entry, into sub-jobs, transformations and even mappings (sub-transformations). All the time, you’ll see the logging for that part of the root job as well as the usual metrics:
The second feature is also a lot of fun. It allows you to execute a transformation in Spoon and see the rows that are coming out of a step in real time. I called this feature a sniff test since that’s what it seems to be doing:
Hope you like these small usability features. If you want to try it out yourself, get Hudson build 1598 or later.
Until next time,
