Re: how to add a component to Talend

1. Unzip the archive file after downloading.
Copy the component folder "tFileOutputPDF". Note the directory structure here, the structure looks like:
tFileoutputPDF // copy this folder!!!
--- iText-2.0.8.jar
--- tFileOutputPDF_begin.javajet
--- tFileOutputPDF_end.javajet
--- other component's files
Paste the component folder to a folder (for example) "D:/myCustomComponent/" used to put all the custom components.
2. In Talend Studio, click Window in the toolbar, followed by Preferences, Talend, and then Component panel, browse the user component folder in which you have inserted the custom components.
3. Finally, click OK button. Talend Studio will reload all the components.

Re: how to add a component to Talend

I am using Talend Open Studio 5.6. If the downloaded component is a zip file then your procedure works fine. But when the component is just a file then it does not show under palette. I downloaded tFileOutputPDF and tPDFToText. These are just a file and not a zip folder. Please help.

Hi Yogesh Khurana,
Which browser are you using to download these custom components?
We can get compressed folders from Talend Exchange Portal.
Best regards
Sabrina

Re: how to add a component to Talend

I am using Chrome browser. For some of the components I am getting compressed folders and also working fine. But for rest of the cases I am getting just a single file. Thanks in advance!!!
