The term <TalendRuntimePath> is used for the directory where Talend Runtime is installed. This is typically the full path of either Runtime_ESBSE or Talend-ESB-V, depending on the version of the software that is being used. Please substitute appropriately.

The Talend Runtime container is in <TalendRuntimePath>/container, but if there are several containers, this may be actually <TalendRuntimePath>/container2, and so on. In this document, <RuntimeContainerPath> is used to indicate the related container path.

The standard directory layout of the Talend Runtime container installation is as follows:

  • /bin: startup scripts

  • /etc: configuration files

    • /keystores: KeyStore files for JobServer SSL connection

  • /data: working directory

    • /cache: OSGi framework bundle cache

    • /generated-bundles: temporary folder used by the deployer

    • /log: log files

  • /deploy: hot deploy directory

  • /instances: directory containing child instances

  • /lib: contains the bootstrap libraries

    • /lib/ext: directory for JRE extensions

    • /lib/endorsed: directory for endorsed libraries

  • /system: OSGi bundles repository, laid out as a Maven 2 repository


The data folder contains all the working and temporary files for Karaf. If you want to restart from a clean state, you can wipe out this directory, which has the same effect as using the clean option.
