Talend CommandLine offers the same basic functionalities as Talend Studio and it is used to generate and export the Jobs developed with Talend Studio onto the Job servers, or export Services, Routes and data service Jobs onto Runtime servers. To launch Talend CommandLine on Linux, you have to run the commandline-linux.sh file. To launch Talend CommandLine on Windows, you have to run the commandline.bat file.

Note: Before shutting down or rebooting Windows, you should ensure that the Talend JobServer and Talend CommandLine services are not running.

The Talend CommandLine file contains three different parts:

  • the name of the Talend Studio executable corresponding to your OS, for example: ./Talend-Studio-linux-gtk-x86

  • operating options, for example:

    • nosplash, no interface is displayed.
    • application org.talend.commandline.CommandLine, the application is launched in commandline mode.
    • consoleLog, the logs are displayed in the console.
    • data commandline-workspace, specify the path and name of the Talend CommandLine workspace.
  • the operating mode, for example, shell or scriptFile /tmp/myscript.

If you want to modify the default settings, you can edit the file, and set it according to your need.

If you want to run Talend CommandLine in background on Linux, you first need to disable the shell. To do so:

  1. Edit the commandline.sh file.

  2. Add the --disableShellInput command.

  3. Save your file.

Then you can execute Talend CommandLine in background. To do so, do the following:

  1. Switch to the <CommandlinePath>.

  2. Enter the command ./commandline-linux.sh &.

Once the commands have been executed, you can close the Talend CommandLine window and it will not exit the service.
