This article explains how to create a user routine and call it in a Job.


Routines are reusable pieces of Java code. Routines enable you to write custom code in Java to optimize data processing, improve Job capacity, and to extend Talend Studio features.

There are two types of routines in Talend Studio:

  • System routines: a number of system routines are provided. They are classified according to the type of data they process, such as: numerical, string, date. These types of routines are read-only, and you can call them directly in a Talend Job.
  • User routines: you can create your own new user routines or adapt existing routines.
