From last few days I was wondering why this internal variable (Internal.Job.Filename.Directory) is always empty in my development environment.

The documentation at http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/EAI/.07+Variables says these variable will be always defined. But it was not in my case.

After lot of time spent debugging and breaking my head I found that these variables are set only if you do not use the repository. In my case I was using a file based repository which was causing this issue. By disconnecting the repository and importing the job directly solved the issue.

Now I am wondering are not we suppose to use these variables while using repository to define paths of sub-jobs or transformations?
