      Description

      The Kettle repository was designed to store Kettle (ETL) metadata in a relational format.
      The goal was to be able to change certain objects centrally, without touching the rest. This was true for these objects:

      • Jobs
      • Transformations
      • Database connections
      • Slave Servers
      • Cluster Schema
      • Partition Schema

      There are other objects that are represented separately in the relational Kettle repository:

      • Steps
      • Job entries
      • Values
      • etc.

      However, it is currently not possible to change them individually from the Spoon UI.

      With respect to support for things like CMIS we need to make a choice about the level of abstraction and the top list seems like a great place to start.
      So the first step to get there is the cleanup of the repository code.

      --> Turn Repository into an Interface
      --> Create one (existing) implementation RelationalRepository
      --> Create one new implementation XMLRepository
      --> Create one new implementation CMISRepository

      That gives us hope of being able to keep everything 100% compatible with respect to the existing steps and plugins. So a few design goals are:

      • Keep step plugins compatible
      • Keep job entry plugins compatible
      • Keep partition plugins compatible

      The rest is up for grabs as far as I'm concerned.
