How to use if condition in transform function?

Code: Select all

import org.jetel.component.DataRecordTransform;
public class ReformatOrdersInline extends DataRecordTransform{
   int counter=0;
   int field=0;
   public int transform(DataRecord[] source, DataRecord[] target){
   System.out.println("Everthing was OK.");
      StringBuffer strBuf=new StringBuffer(80);
      if (source[0]==null){
         System.err.println("NULL source[0]");
      System.out.println("Everthing was OK.");
            SetVal.setString(target[0],"RECORD_TYPE_PLN_ID",GetVal.getString(source[0],"RECORD_TYPE_PLN_ID")   );
            SetVal.setInt(target[0],"CHARGE_AMOUNT",GetVal.getInt(source[0],"CHARGE_AMOUNT")   );
      }catch(Exception ex){
         errorMessage=ex.getMessage()+" ->occured with record :"+counter;
         return SKIP;
         return ALL;

is this correct??

Hi Kunaljd,

I don't know what you would like to achieve, but your current code do this:

* check RECORD_TYPE=="asd"
* if equal, set output record data
* if not equal, do nothing
* in both cases send record

This is probably not what you want. If you would like to send record just in case condition is true, use "return OK;" from within block. For rest of cases return SKIP.

See ... alues.html for details.
