Design and Development
In a test-driven approach, process development and tests are closely related to each other and thus the task of the developer is only complete once the process has been both designed and tested. Once the specfications are defined, the development team can start designing the processes which are called Jobs.
In a Development environment, developers need:
  • the Talend Studio and/or Talend CommandLine (same as the Studio without GUI), where they design and generate the Jobs, Routes and Services,

  • a Git server, in order to store their items (Jobs, metadata, etc.) into a shared repository,

  • the Talend Administration Center application to schedule the execution of the Jobs,

  • an execution server, to deploy and execute their Jobs.

Note: From version 8 onwards, Talend Studio provides two scripts, commandline_upgrade.bat for Windows and for Linux, which allows you to install Talend CommandLine by upgrading either a brand new or an existing Talend Studio.
