difference between Job build and export items - logical

Hi
I'm trying to understand difference between job build and export item.
Seen and asked from so many people, but nobody could give me concrete answer. What's more difference is there apart from to run job in different system ?
Best !!

Re: difference between Job build and export items - logical

Hi,
The option of building (exporting) job is used to export the job script.
Export item option is used to export the item files, including jobs, metadatas, contexts, routines.
If the job requirement is to run your job on different systems,  you can export the job script(.bat/.sh)
Please have a look at the KB article about:TalendHelpCenter:Exporting a Job script and executing it outside of Talend Studio
Best regards
Sabrina
