Creating a Route

Talend Studio enables you to create Routes by dropping different mediation components from the Palette onto the design workspace and then connecting these components together.

These created Routes are all stored in a central repository. You can create different folders to better classify them.

Information noteWarning: If you are working on a Git-managed project, do not use any of the following reserved key words to name your Route or Route folder:
  • tests
  • target
  • src
If any of the above-mentioned key words is used in the name of a Route, a Route folder or any level of its parent folders, changes to your Route or your Routes in the folder will not get pushed to Git.
