Installation Testing

Testing your Talend Framework Installation

Once you’ve successfully Installed the Talend Framework, you can test it to see that everything is working, as expected.

The simplest way to test the Framework, is to run the Template Job.

You’ll find the Template Job under: –

Repository->Job Designs->Framework->Templates

Open the Job named Template and select the Run Tab.

You will notice that the default Context is named “Dev“. For the purposes of Framework testing, it is recommended that you select the Context named “Default“. Context selection is covered in more detail, in the tutorial Organising Your Projects

Run, the Job named Template.

On successful execution, you should see console output that is similar to the output, shown below. For brevity, I have not shown the table labelled Installation Configuration.

Starting job Template at 11:30 23/10/2015.

 Successful?

Hopefully, the Template Job completed successfully. This Job will have created a number of directories and files. We’ll explore these later. If execution of this Job has completed successfully, you are ready to start using the Talend Framework.

 Didn’t Work?

If things did not go according to plan, please check any errors, and review the  Installation Instructions.

If you are still unable to resolve the issue, remember that Free Support is always available.
