Before you begin
- Apache Kafka and Zookeeper requires Java 8. You can use either Oracle Java or OpenJDK.
- Make sure that the JAVA_HOME variable is correctly set to the Java home
directory. For example: /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_181-amd64.Tip: You can set it in the /root/.bashrc file by adding the following line to it: export JAVA_HOME=$(dirname $(dirname $(readlink -e /usr/bin/java))).
About this task
The default installation also installs the following dependencies:
In case of custom installation, these dependencies must be installed beforehand.
Create a file called
talend.repoin the /etc/yum.repos.d directory, containing the following configuration:
[talend-7.3.1] name=Talend 7.3.1 baseurl='https://<user>:<password>@www.opensourceetl.net/rpms/talend/7.3.1/base/x86_64/' enabled=1 gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://www.opensourceetl.net/rpms/GPG-KEY-talend

- If the default parameters do not match your
requirements, install the package with custom parameters using the RPM
For example, the following command installs the module in a specific directory:
rpm -i --prefix=<InstallPath> https://<user>:<password>@www.opensourceetl.net/rpms/talend/<rpm_version>/base/x86_64/<rpm_name>-<rpm_version>-<rpm_build_number>.x86_64.rpm
The list of configuration parameters is detailed in Apache Kafka and Zookeeper RPM configuration parameters.Note: When installing the package with custom parameters, the dependencies listed above are not installed. You need to install them beforehand.
- To install the package with its default configuration, use the following command:
