Subject Re: Newbie - Sink question

Yes, sink seems like the right place to put the CSV-S3 code. Don't mess
with the channel code unless you know what you're doing. Although since
you're doing db lookups, I'd imagine that would slow down the whole channel
depending on the source data rate. What I'd suggest is that you take a look
at how interceptors work and/or maybe take a look at the morphline sdk (

Keep the source for only reading files and sink for only writing files.
Everything else in the interceptor/morphline.
