hi , i am new in talend open studio and i found no way to read dbf files .
i found actually 2 blocking ways where i am stuck each time with different errors .
i tried first to downlaod from exchange.talend , tDBFInput component and it shows an exception "dbflib.CorruptedTableException: Number of field descriptions in file could not be calculated" each time i try to run the job after putting the dbf file in that componenet .
i also tried to perform a jdbc connection using a dbf driver i downloaded , after installing it as external jar , i cannot find out the driver class , i can select the driver and it is added from the list of drivers but i cannot find the class ,which class to use .and also how to later on make the connection to a file not a table .
i also tried a second tDBFInput component that i downloaded from the exchange.talend web site but it always shows MASHAPE KEY that i need to configure , where i have no idea what value it should take , i see people saying it should be an URL pointing to an API and you also must know the authentication needed to request that url .
can anyone who extracted data from dbf FOX pro files in version 7.x tell me how to do it?
