I have a project that currently contains 30 jobs. I now export the jobs individually whenever I make a change, copy and run the jobs on a linux machine. I was not able to find an option in talend to export the project containing these 30 jobs into a zip file, still maintaining the structure of the individual jobs. I can select all the jobs in the project and export them to a zip file, but when the file is unzipped, all the jobs are in a folder in the name of the first job in the project. There is only one lib directory for all the jobs and this does not contain all the jars required to run all the jobs.
I would really appreciate if you can let me know how a complete project along with the code for the jobs can be exported to run on a linux box. I am currently developing my project on a windows environment.
if your jobs are interdependent that means One job calling other job Parent child relationship the u have a option while exporting your main or first job to start you can select Export Dependencies and Apply to children.
if your jobs are not interdependent then you need to export the individually.
I have jobs that are independent of each other. I do understand the option 'Export Dependencies' and 'Apply to children' options when exporting a job. I can decrease my development time in half or probably more if I was able to export the complete project, with all the jobs in a folder containing the name of the project. Whenever I make changes to the project settings, I will have to export each job separately and this increases my development time. I hope Talend can come up with some option to export the project, as well as jobs individually while still maintaining the overall structure and functionality of the jobs/project.
I would really appreciate if somebody from the Talend team can answers these questions. I just want to know if there is a way to do this or I have to export each and every job individually whenever I make changes to the project settings.
I tried what you have said in the post. Export jobs and Export Items are totally two different things. The export jobs, exports the actual job along with the source, jar files and other supporting files. It also creates a .sh file or a .bat file depending on the environment, which you can use to run on the command line. Export Items is not doing the same thing and I think they totally have different functionality. Export items exports the metadata related to the jobs and mostly contains .item and .properties files of the various jobs in the project. This is not exactly what I have in mind when I posted on the forum. Just like I export individual jobs, I want to export the complete project with the project name as the root folder containing all the jobs in the project. I hope I am clear with my request and what I want to do.
