The following scenario describes two Jobs aiming at passing data via a listening port. The first Job (SocketInput) opens the listening port and waits for the data to be sent over. The second Job (SocketOutput) passes delimited data from a file to a defined port number corresponding to the listening port.

For more technologies supported by Talend, see Talend components.

Another application for the Socket components would be to allow controlled communication between servers which cannot communicate directly.
