[resolved] Call and execute an external application from within a Job?

I need to decode a row input (a string) from Base64 inside a Job.
I have a .exe that does it. It's executable from a Windows command prompt. How can I call this .exe from a within a TOS component?

No. But I solved the problem in a better way.
See http://www.talendforge.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=28383 for the problem with the tSystem, which remains unresolved, but moot.
Thanks, anyway - it should have worked.

You can execute it using the tSystem component or alternatively put the command in a batch file and execute the batch from tSystem component.
