Re: uninstall an external jar

Are you using open source or subscription version?  Are you using Nexus as your binary repository?

I am using Talend for big data platform. I am running in local mode.

I found a method to uninstall manually.

For each and every .jar installed ,there will be a directory with the name same as that of jar in talend installation directory.

In this directory , the jar file will be placed.

just delete this directory.

in my case the directory was mssql-jdbc.

I deleted this directory and the jar got uninstalled.

Ok.  Look under studio\configuration\.m2 folder.  Do you see the jar there?  Talend specific libraries goes into studio\configuration\.m2\repository\org\talend\libraries

 

A brute force way to initialise the studio libraries is to close the studio and then delete the following folders in the studio\configuration folder:

  • .m2
  • org.eclipse.core.runtime
  • org.eclipse.e4.ui.css.swt.theme
  • org.eclipse.equinox.app
  • org.eclipse.equinox.launcher
  • org.eclipse.help.base
  • org.eclipse.osgi
  • org.eclipse.update

When you start the studio again, it will be like starting the first time and will re-download all libraries.  Note that there are GB of libraries for big data.

This instruction is for when using local projects without Nexus shared libraries.
