Talend Framework 1.5 Release Notes

What’s new in Talend Framework 1.5

Job Monitoring

The Talend Framework 1.5 brings the release of the utility Job: MonitorJobs.

This Job will monitor the execution of your other Jobs, ensuring that they are active when they should be.

For more information, read Job: MoniorJobs.

Automatic File Archiving

The library Job: LibArchive allows you to automatically archive files from a number of known directories on your file system. You specify which directories are to be archived and, optionally, which file patterns should then be deleted from those directories.

Job: LibArchive works in conjunction with Job: LibPruneFileSystem, to ensure that your file system is maintained in a healthy state, with minimum effort on your part.

Unprocessed File Report

If you have Jobs that read files from your input directory for processing, the library Job: LibUnprocessedFileReport will automatically report on any files that remain unprocessed, based on your own file specification.

Installation

If you are installing the Talend Framework version 1.5 in to a project where a previous version of the Talend Framework has not been installed, please follow these instructions.

Upgrading

If you’re upgrading your project from a version of the Talend Framework prior to version 1.4, then should should follow the usual installation instructions; however, you should note the following.

Context Groups

If you have made your own changes to the default values of any Framework Context Groups, then you will need to re-apply these changes. Prior to installation, you should ensure that you have made a note of what these changes are.

It is not, normally, expected that that you will be changing these values; however, there may be some circumstances where you have chosen to modify default values within the following two Context Groups.

  • Framework
  • FileSystem

It is not recommended that you directly modify default values in any of the other Framework Context Groups. These values should always be modified using Context Files and the Context Loader.

File System Default Value Changes

Version 1.4 of the Talend Framework introduced some changes to the default File System locations. This was to simplify your file system structure and administration.

It is recommended that you use these new defaults; however, you may amend these to the previous values, if you choose.
