In this chapter, you learned the basics about PDI jobs—what a job is, what you can do with a job, and how jobs are different from transformations. In particular, you learned to use a job for running one or more transformations.

You also saw how to use named parameters in jobs, and how to supply parameters and arguments to transformations when they are run from jobs.

In the next chapter, you will learn to create jobs that are a little more elaborative than the jobs you created here, which will give you more power to implement all types of processes.
