Talend Studio enables you to create Routes by dropping different EIP components from the Palette onto the design workspace and then connecting these components together.

These created Routes are all stored in a central repository. You can create different folders to better classify them.

To create a Route, do the following:

  1. Open Talend Studio following the procedure as detailed in the Getting Started Guide.

  2. In the Repository tree view of the Integration perspective, right-click the Routes node and select Create Route from the contextual menu.

    The [New Route] wizard opens to help you define the main properties of the new Route.

  3. Enter the Route properties according to the description in the following table:

    Field

    Description

    Name

    the name of the new Route. A message comes up if you enter prohibited characters.

    Purpose

    Route purpose or any useful information regarding the Route use.

    Description

    Route description.

    Author

    a read-only field that shows by default the current user login.

    Locker

    a read-only field that shows by default the login of the user who owns the lock on the current Route. This field is empty when you are creating a Route and has data only when you are editing the properties of an existing Route.

    Version

    a read-only field. You can manually increment the version using the M and m buttons. For more information, see Managing Job and Route versions.

    Status

    a list to select from the status of the Route you are creating.

    Path

    a list to select from the folder in which the Route will be created.

    An empty design workspace opens up showing the name of the Route as a tab label and the Route is now listed under the Routes node in the Repository tree view.

  4. Drop the components you want to use in your Route from the Palette onto the design workspace and connect them together. For more information, see Adding components to the Job and Connecting the components together.

  5. Define the properties of each of the components used in the Route, when necessary. For more information, see Configuring the components.

  6. Save your Route and then press F6 to execute it. For more information, see Executing the Job.

Note

You can open one or more of the created Routes by simply double-clicking their label in the Repository tree view.

To create different folders for your Routes, do the following:

  1. In the Repository tree view of the Integration perspective, right-click Routes and select Create folder from the contextual menu.

    The [New folder] dialog box displays.

  2. In the Label field, enter a name for the folder and then click Finish to confirm your changes and close the dialog box.

    The created folder is listed under the Routes node in the Repository tree view.

Note

If you have already created Routes that you want to move into this new folder, simply drop them into the folder.

For a scenario showing how to create a real-life Route, see Talend ESB Mediation Components documentation in Talend Help Center.
