    How to install File Operations components in Data Integrator

    930525
      Hello Endeca Forum,

      I'm interested in using the File Operations components in Data Integrator, but getting and installing them is surprisingly obscure.

      I'm talking about...

      http://doc.cloveretl.com/documentation/UserGuide/index.jsp?topic=/com.cloveretl.gui.docs/docs/file-operations.html

      The Clover documentation (http://doc.cloveretl.com/documentation/UserGuide/index.jsp?topic=/com.cloveretl.gui.docs/docs/components.html) states...

      "+Note if you cannot see this component category, navigate to Window → Preferences → CloverETL → Components in Palette and tick both checkboxes next to File Operations+"

      However, when I go to Window --> Preferences --> CloverETL --> Components in Palette, I don't even see File Operations. This tells me that the version of Clover packaged with OEID doesn't have the components installed.

      Going to Help --> Check for Updates also didn't yield anything that looked like the File Operations components.

      I'm hoping someone here is familiar with the necessary steps to get these components installed...

      Thanks,

      Jerome

          Hi Jerome,

          The CloverETL documentation that you are referring to is for their latest release: CloverETL 3.3.0. If you go to the first page of the documentation, you will see the following note:
          "This User's Guide refers to CloverETL Designer 3.3.x release."

          The Integrator in EID 2.3.0 is not based on CloverETL 3.3.x, it is based on CloverETL 3.2.x. Please use the documentation on this page for the Integrator:
          http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29805_01/index.htm

          Best,
          Purvesh.

            I see what you're saying Purvesh, thanks for the clarification.

            Again, it's a little challenging to find this out, but there's a Clover support team member who mentions here...

            http://forum.cloveretl.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6428&view=previous

            ... that the File Operations were introduced in the 3.3.0 M3 release.

            Guess this means we're out of luck, which is unfortunate.

            I'm fully aware that the SystemExecute component is an option for file management, but it's not the best fit for what I need to do. In any case, my question has been answered.

            Thanks!

            Jerome
