Your Talend Studio comes with a test framework that allows you to create test cases to test your Jobs during Continuous Integration development to make sure they will function as expected when they are actually executed to handle large datasets.

By creating a test case, you can verify whether the following will work as expected:

  • a data flow
  • one or more components
  • multiple subJobs

Note that when you create a test case for one or more components that do not constitute a data flow or for multiple subJobs, the Create a Test Skeleton check box will not be operable and you need to complete the test case by adding components of your choice manually.

This section describes how to create, set up, and execute a test case based on the tMap Job example.

Prerequisites: Before creating a test case for a Job, make sure all the components of your Job have been configured.
