XML File to Talend Job or JobScript?



I am doing my research on a project. I would like to know if it is possible in Talend to import an XML file and convert it into a job or even jobscript (which will be used to generate the job)?


I am aware of Metabridge, which can import Cobol, informatica, datastage etc files. I have also seen an W3C xml DTD and xsd option but will it work on XML files which has metadata and conversions?


I am working in TOS now, but I will have the subscription version next week. Hence I have not yet tried it myself. 


Thanks in advance!

Hi Remytom

It is impossible to generate a Talend Job by importing a XML file, you have to create the job by hands or use Jobscript API to generate the job.

thank you. just wanted to check that. 


At the risk of being silly, a Quick question:

Jobscript API also works in Talend Big data Platform, right?
