Building a Route to an ESB Runtime KAR file

About this task

To build a Route to an ESB Runtime KAR file, complete the following:


  1. In the Repository tree view, right-click the Route you want to build, and select Build Route to open the Build Route dialog box.
    Information noteNote:

    You can show/hide a tree view of all created Jobs in Talend Studio directly from the Build Route dialog box by clicking the Double right arrow to show the tree view and the Double left arrow to hide the tree view buttons respectively. This accessibility helps to modify the selected items to be exported directly from the dialog box without having to close it and go back to the Repository tree view in Talend Studio to do that.

    Build Route dialog box.
  2. In the To archive file field, browse to the directory where you want to save your built Route.
  3. In the Route Version area, select the version number of the Route you want to build if you have created more than one version of the Route.
  4. In the Build Type area, Talend Runtime (OSGI) is selected by default.
  5. Click Finish to validate your changes, complete the export operation and close the dialog box.


A .kar file for the Route is created in the defined place.

For a quick test of your Route, you can start a locally installed Talend Runtime, and copy the build artifact to the <TalendRuntimePath>/container/deploy folder.

For more information on how to install a local Talend Runtime, see the installation guide.
