Shutterstock 403856026


We mostly use Talend studio, TAC or TMC to run a Talend job once it is ready. But for all these we need to install Talend Studio and need rights to access TAC and TMC. What if we want to run a talend job outside the studio? We can do that using command prompt.

We can bundle the job so that we can execute our talend job irrespective of whether Talend studio is installed on machine or not we can execute them independently. All we need is a zip file of that job and JDK installed on our machine. Also, if we are making use of any context variables, we can also override the values of those variables and can execute the job dynamically.


Steps 1 to 3 are about how to make a zip file of a job and steps 4 to 7 to run the job using Command Line
