Talend Runtime includes the execution server, Talend Runtime Container and its infrastructure services, including: Service Locator, Service Activity Monitoring and Security Token Service.

To fully benefit from all these functionalities, do the following:


  1. Go to subdirectory <TalendRuntimePath>\container\bin of the Talend Runtime installation directory.
  2. Run the trun.bat (Windows) or (Linux) file.

    When the container starts up, you will see a short introduction (similar to the one below) followed by the Talend Runtime Container console command prompt:

    Hit '<tab>' for a list of available commands
    and '[cmd] --help' for help on a specific command.
    Hit '<ctrl-d>' or type 'system:shutdown' to shutdown TRUN.
  3. After starting the Talend Runtime Container, wait a few seconds for initialization to complete before going to the next steps. Karaf, on which the Talend Runtime Container is built, starts the noncore bundles in the background. So even if the console is already available, the commands may not be.
  4. At the Console prompt: karaf@trun>, execute the list command.

    This will list all the OSGi Bundles installed in the Talend Runtime Container and let you know if they are active, or not yet.

  5. Once the Talend Runtime Container and its OSGi Bundles start, execute the following command to change the port used by default by the Talend Runtime Container:
    source scripts/
  6. Execute the tesb:start-demo-all command to start all the Infrastructure Services at once.

    Now, the Service Locator, Service Activity Monitoring and Security Token Service services are running as features in the Talend Runtime Container.

  7. From the Talend Runtime Container console, type in:

    For demo purpose, users of the subscription products need to change the default security management system, the Talend Identity Management Service, to the JAAS authentication handler, which is easier to use, and does not require the installation of additional software.
