you can read the individual serial files from partition 1 and partition4 by providing absolute path and perform the join

You may use a Broadcast component to read your multifile having 8 partitions which would give you data partition flows from 0-7, which you can feed to a join component.

Actually I have small doubt if we use broadcast it arbitrarily combines partitions it squares input data than how can you join to those required partitions? How can we retrieve particular partition?

I guess, you should use this flow i/p -> FBE(this_partition() ==4 -> JOIN

Use PBE to get partition 1 and 4 in seperate flows using this_partition=1 nd 4. Then use join
