Here is an example of using Talend FTP components to put several files in a local directory onto an FTP server.

Creating a Job for putting files onto an FTP server

Create a Job to connect to an FTP server, then put several local files onto the server, finally close the connection to the server.

  1. Create a new Job and add a tFTPConnection component, a tFTPPut component, and a tFTPClose component by typing their names in the design workspace or dropping them from the Palette.

  2. Link the tFTPConnection component to the tFTPPut component using a Trigger > OnSubjobOk connection.

  3. Link the tFTPPut component to the tFTPClose component using a Trigger > OnSubjobOk connection.

Opening a connection to the FTP server

Configure the tFTPConnection component to open a connection to the FTP server.

  1. Double-click the tFTPConnection component to open its Basic settings view.

  2. In the Host and Port fields, enter the FTP server IP address and the listening port number respectively.

  3. In the Username and Password fields, enter the authentication details.

  4. From the Connection Mode drop-down list, select the FTP connection mode you want to use, Active in this example.

Putting files onto the FTP server

Configure the tFTPPut component to put several local files onto the FTP server root directory.

  1. Double-click the tFTPPut component to open its Basic settings view.

  2. Specify the connection details required to access the FTP server. In this example, select the Use an existing connection check box and from the Component list drop-down list displayed, select the connection component to reuse its connection details you have already defined.

  3. In the Local directory field, specify the local directory that contains the files to be put onto the FTP server. In this example, it is D:/components.

  4. In the Remote directory field, specify the FTP server directory onto which the files will be put. In this example, it is /, which means the root directory of the FTP server.

  5. Clear the Move to the current directory check box.

  6. In the Files table, click twice the [+] button to add two lines, and in the two Filemask column fields, enter *.txt and *.png respectively, which means only the text and png files in the specified local directory will be put onto the FTP server root directory.

Closing the connection to the FTP server

Configure the tFTPClose component to close the connection to the FTP server.

  1. Double-click the tFTPClose component to open its Basic settings view.

  2. From the Component list drop-down list, select the tFTPConnection component that opens the connection you need to close. In this example, only one tFTPConnection component is used and it is selected by default.

Executing the Job to put files on the FTP server

After setting up the Job and configuring the components used in the Job for putting files onto the FTP server, you can then execute the Job and verify the Job execution result.

  1. Press Ctrl + S to save the Job and then F6 to execute the Job.

  2. Connect to the FTP server to verify the result.

    As shown above, only the text and png files in the local directory are put onto the FTP server.
