Installation and Upgrade

In order for your Talend product to use the Java environment installed on your machine, you must set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.


  1. Find the folder where Java is installed.
    For example:
    • /usr/lib/jvm/java-x-oracle
    • /usr/lib/jvm/zulu-8/bin
  2. Open a terminal.
  3. Use the export command to set the JAVA_HOME and Path variables.
    For example:
    • export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jre1.8.0_65
      export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
    • export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/<zulu_jdk>
      export PATH=/$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
  4. Add these lines at the end of the global profiles in the /etc/profile file or in the user profiles in the ~/.profile file.
    After changing one of these files you have to log on again.
    Note: If you use sudo to run the Installer to install system services, make sure to use sudo -E before starting the installation.
