Getting Started

Introduction

You can get started with the Talend Framework very quickly. In just a few minutes, you can be running your first Job that performs your own tasks.

Pre-requisites

This documentation assumes that you do have a basic understanding of either Talend Open Studio for Data Integration, or Talend Enteprise. If you do not, there are plenty of resource that will get you going, including TalendByExample.com.

If you have not already done so, download and install Talend for Data Integration version 5.6.1 or later.

Project Configuration

The Framework includes a Job Execution Reporting module. This module provides statistical reporting for your executed Jobs. If you would like to use this module, then you will need to configure Stats & Logs.

I do recommend that you collect the statistics of your Jobs. The Framework makes it very easy for you to collect and report on these.

Read this article on Job Execution Reporting, for more information.

Installation

To Install the Framework, simply import it in to your Project. For more information, read the Installation Guide.

Installation Testing

The simplest way to test the installation of the Framework, is to run Job: Template. For more information, read this article on Installation Testing.

Creating Your First Job

Now that you’ve successfully got the Framework up and running, you’re ready to create your first Job.
