How to install an external module that isn't listed in the Module View or in Install Additional Packages Section

Hello, I deleted the external module org.apache.tools.ant-1.6.5.jar in my (Talend Folder)/lib/java because I was getting an error on tfileunarchive component that the component wasn't pointed to the right external module. I was able to load it by performing a tLibraryLoad at the beginning of the job and calling on it. For some reason it doesn't show up on my module list anymore. I was wondering is there a way to manually download this external module from the https://talend-update.talend.com site because I currently do not see it when I search it. Its needed for tfileunarchive component.

 

If I wanted to put my Module list back to default settings when I first installed Talend 7.1 Open Studio for Data Integration. Is there away to do that also?

 

I looked at this resource already https://help.talend.com/reader/JoDPA5CxpUcrjx1PF6gUgQ/ulXz~nSh4I~MCEa74R9s9A. I need another solution because the external module doesn't show up on my Module List.

Hello,

What talend edition/version are you using? Are you able to download ant-1.6.5.jar from here and install it manually into your studio?

Hello Sabrina,

 

Thanks for your response,

I am currently running Talend Open Studio for Data Integration 7.1, considering Talend Cloud Integration in the future, if I can get my business processes down in Open Studio.

 

I'm trying to get org.apahe.tools.ant-1.6.5 jar external module to show up in my Modules View again. I downloaded the jar file you had in your screenshot and placed it in this folder C:\talend\plugins. Do I need to recreate the org.apahe.tools.ant-1.6.5 folder in that file path? Is there another module I need to install with this one for it to show up. Here is an old screenshot when I had the jar file installed on my pc. I had to use tLibraryLoad to call on the right jar file, for my tfileunarchive component to load. I can't find that same jar file now, since I deleted it thinking I could reinstall it.

I get this Java code error everytime I run a job with tfileunarchive

if (tmpFileURL_tFileUnarchive_2.endsWith(".tar.gz")
|| tmpFileURL_tFileUnarchive_2.endsWith(".tgz")) {
org.apache.tools.tar.TarInputStream zip_tFileUnarchive_2 = null;
java.io.InputStream inputStream_tFileUnarchive_2 = null;
try {

 

Please advise!

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Hello Sabrina,

 

You asked me:

 

Are you able to download ant-1.6.5.jar from here and install it manually into your studio?

 

Can I ask you what filepath in your Talend folder does this external module need to be saved too is it the plugin folder?

 

I don't see ant-1.6.5.jar in the actual Module View, So I'm thinking that Talend isn't recognizing that this module is installed. I can only use tfileunarchive component when I have a tLibraryLoad Component in Pre Execution. Take a look at my ss.

 

Please Advise!
