= Using Pentaho With Apache Ignite
== Overview
http://www.pentaho.com[Pentaho, window=_blank] is a comprehensive platform that provides the ability to extract,
transform, visualize, and analyze your data easily. Pentaho Data Integration uses the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
API in order to connect to your database.
Apache Ignite is shipped with its own implementation of the JDBC driver which makes it possible to connect to Ignite
from the Pentaho platform and analyze the data stored in a distributed Ignite cluster.
== Installation and Configuration
* Download and Install Pentaho platform. Refer to the official https://help.pentaho.com/Documentation/7.1/Installation[Pentaho documentation, window=_blank].
* After Pentaho is successfully installed, you will need to install the Apache Ignite JDBC Driver using the JDBC Distribution Tool.
To do so, download Apache Ignite and locate `{apache-ignite}/libs/ignite-core-{version}.jar` and copy the file to the `{pentaho}/jdbc-distribution` directory.
* Open a command line tool, navigate to the `{pentaho}/jdbc-distribution` directory and run the following script `./distribute-files.sh ignite-core-{version}.jar`
== Ignite JDBC Driver Setup
The next step is to set up the JDBC driver and connect to the cluster. Below you will find the minimal number of actions
that need to be taken. Refer to the link:SQL/JDBC/jdbc-driver[JDBC Thin Driver] documentation for the more details.
. Open your command line tool, go to the `{pentaho}/design-tools/data-integration` directory and launch Pentaho Data Integration using the `./spoon.sh` script.
. Once the screen like the one below appears, click on the `File` menu option and create a new transformation - `New -> Transformation`

[opts="header"]
|===
|Pentaho Property Name | Value
| Connection Name| Set some custom name such as `IgniteConnection`
| Connection Type| Select the `Generic database` option.
| Access| Select the `Native (JDBC)` option.
| Custom Connection URL| `jdbc:ignite:thin://localhost:10800` or the real address of a cluster node to connect to.
| Custom Driver Class Name| `org.apache.ignite.IgniteJdbcThinDriver`
|===
. Click the `Test` button to check that the connection‚Äč can be established:

== Data Querying and Analysis
Once the connection between Ignite and Pentaho is established , you can query, transform, and analyze the data in a
variety of ways supported by Pentaho. For more details, refer to the official Pentaho documentation.
