Database Table Selector

This Node Is Deprecated — This node is kept for backwards-compatibility, but the usage in new workflows is no longer recommended. The documentation below might contain more information.

This node is part of the deprecated database framework. For more information on how to migrate to the new database framework see the migration section of the database documentation.

This node takes a database connection as input and allows selecting a table based on the incoming database JDBC connection. The node outputs the incoming connection together with the query which can later on be used in subsequent database manipulation nodes.


SQL Statement
Enter SQL statement being executed here, for example SELECT * FROM mytable.
Additional SQL commands (create, drop, set parameter, etc.) can be added before the actual SELECT statement and are executed together line-by-line during configure and execute. Note, those additional SQL commands need to be separated by semicolon.
