Installing Talend JobServer as a service on Windows


  1. Optional: If you want to configure a different JVM to run Jobs, you must define the JAVA_HOME variable with the path to this JVM in the jsl64.ini configuration file.
    Set the PATH value with the path to the Java version to use for running Jobs, and the jrepath value with the path to the Java version to use to launch Talend JobServer.


    To use Java 17 everywhere, and if the %JAVA_HOME% variable isn't already set in your user environment, add the following lines under the [defines] and [java] sections:
    JAVA_HOME = c:\java\17.0.11-zulu
    PATH = %JAVA_HOME%\bin;%PATH% 
    jrepath = c:\java\17.0.11-zulu


    To use Java 17 for Talend JobServer, and Java 11 for running Jobs, add the following lines under the [defines] and [java] sections:
    PATH = c:\java\11.0.23-zulu\bin;%PATH% 
    jrepath = c:\java\17.0.11-zulu
  2. Open a CMD window in Administrator mode and browse to the conf directory of your Talend JobServer installation directory.
  3. Execute the following command:
    jsl_static64.exe -debug
  4. Stop execution by pressing Ctrl+C.
  5. In the CMD window, execute the following command:
    jsl_static64.exe -install


The Talend JobServer service is created and can be viewed by selecting Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services in the Start Menu of Windows.

Note that, when shutting down or rebooting Windows, the Talend JobServer service does not stop. In order to avoid issues during start-up, you need to stop the service before shutting down or rebooting your machine.

To remove the service you can enter the following command in the same command window: jsl_static64.exe -remove
