Once Talend ESB installed, you can access Talend ESB Container in the <TalendESBPath>/container directory.

Talend ESB Container is an OSGI container, based on Apache Karaf, allowing you to deploy and execute various components and applications inside its <TalendESBPath>/container/deploy folder.


  1. Browse to the <TalendESBPath>/container/bin directory.
  2. Run the trun.bat file.


After starting Talend ESB Container, you need to wait a few seconds for initialization to complete before entering the commands. Karaf, on which the Talend ESB Container is built, starts the non core bundles in background. For this reason, even if the console is already available, the commands may not be.

For more information on Talend ESB Container usage and configuration, see Talend ESB Container Administration Guide and Talend ESB Infrastructure Services Configuration Guide.

Once Talend ESB Container is installed and launched, you will be able to install all the other components available in the Talend ESB package as features directly in the container. Thus, when launching Talend ESB Container, all the other components will be launched at the same time.

You also have the possibility to install these components as standalone.

Warning: When installing Talend ESB components as features in the container, you might encounter memory problems. For more information on how to increase the memory allocation of the container, see Memory Allocation Parameters.

This implementation can ease the management of Talend ESB but if you want to create a cluster environment, you will need to replicate the container to have several containers with the right components installed as features in it, whereas if you are using the different components as standalone you will only need to duplicate the corresponding instance.

If you only want to use several basic containers, you can also use Talend Runtime, as Talend Runtime is the exact equivalent of the container folder provided in Talend ESB. For more information about the installation of Talend Runtime, see Installing Talend Runtime.
