I would like to execute a job stored in jobServer but without TAC. We use a Professionnal version 6.3.1.
I explain why: we are a commercial boat company and we have one jobServer on each ship, and one TAC in the office to centralize all deployments and supervision. I would like to execute jobs from an external application executed on the same server as the jobServer.
It's not possible for us to have an application on the ship that will send a request to the TAC and then the tac execute the job on jobServer on board because the connection between office and ships during crossing is unstable.
I've already read this :
But I don't know if there is a change on version 6.3 and I don't understand why it's not possible to execute remotely a job in a jobServer. How the tac communicate with the jobServer ? Can I simulate the order/request that the TAC send to jobServer ?
I think you should go for option 2 in your link: generate the job archive from the Studio and launch the .bat/.sh depending on your OS directly from your application.
You could probably find the generated files from the JobServer Repository on the server if you don't want to deploy "manually".
From my point of view, it's by far the easiest method. Easier than trying to simulate a request to the job server
Thx for your reply.
In this case, we don't use what we paid for, the TAC and it's features(except deployment).
As you say we can use the .sh that are put in jobServer directory during deployment, but in this configuration we can't monitor executions with the tac.
More than that, It's easier to pass parameters by request than changing values in .properties before each execution.
Real pb for us.
Thx again for your answers Lennelei,
I don't think there is an easy solution. If the jobServer can be requested remotely I could have informations about executions.
The start job order would have been requested by an onboard application, so no pb with the connection at this time.
I will ask Talend support with the professionnal account but I suppose they don't have an other solution.
