Something other than Java

Hi All,

 

I know that Talend is written in Java, but I was wondering if other languages could be used to perform tasks or functions.

I particularly interested in using Python, if that is an option.

If it is, can someone point me to an example of doing so?  I have searched around, but I have not been successful in finding any examples.

 

Thanks.

Re: Something other than Java

You can use tSystem to call a Python module but this should be an exceptional case.

You may also use Jython to call Python functions from your routines, but definitively, the simplest is to use Java with TOS.

Thanks TRF.

A couple follow up questions if you don't mind.

 

Is there a particular reason(s) this should be the exception?

Since this is a system call (commandline?) I assume then that other system objects or programs could be invoked as well, correct?

 

Thanks.
