Installation and Upgrade

Procedure

  1. Install the Apache Tomcat application server and stop the Apache Tomcat service if it is automatically started.
  2. Open the /etc/default/tomcat8 file, or the /etc/tomcat/tomcat.conf file on CentOS/RHEL, to edit it.
  3. Uncomment the Apache Tomcat security setting and change the default setting as follows:
    TOMCAT8_SECURITY=no
  4. Unzip the package delivered by Talend: Talend-AdministrationCenter-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C.zip.
    This will give you access to the different components needed to benefit from all the Talend Administration Center functionalities:
    • org.talend.administrator.war, the archive containing the actual Talend Administration Center Web application.

    • Artifact-Repository-Nexus-VA.B.C.D.zip, the archive containing an artifact repository software, based on Sonatype Nexus, that will be used to handle software updates and DI artifacts . For more information, see Introduction to the Talend products.

    • Artifact-Repository-Artifactory.zip, the archive containing Talend scripts to initialize users in JFrog Artifactory, that will be used to handle software updates and DI artifacts. For more information, see Introduction to the Talend products.

  5. Copy the Web application, org.talend.administrator.war, into the webapps directory of Apache Tomcat.
    Once you have copied this war file, you can either unzip it manually under the same directory, or let Apache Tomcat unzip the web application at startup.
  6. Start Apache Tomcat by running the following file:
    <TomcatPath>/bin/startup.sh

Results

Warning: The storage of log outputs is managed by the Apache Tomcat application server by default, but you can also define your own path for storing the logs. From 4.0, you can configure the path directly from Talend Administration Center. For more information on manual configuration in prior versions, see Configuring the log storage mode.

You can implement high availability to the task execution scheduling using the Talend clustering feature. To do so, you must install Apache Tomcat in cluster mode before starting Apache Tomcat. For more information, see Installing Tomcat in cluster mode.

If you deploy a large number of applications on Apache Tomcat, you should increase its memory to improve its performance. For more information on this process, see Increasing the memory of Apache Tomcat.
