This recipe guides you through starting a Carte server on a single-instance machine. The Carte server is a lightweight web server that enables remote execution of transformations and jobs. It is a crucial tool for coordinating job and transformation executions in a scale-out cluster environment.
To get ready for this recipe, you first need to start the MongoDB server with the same database as that of the last chapter. You will also have to check
<user home folder>/.pentaho/metastore in Unix/Linux operating systems, and in the Windows operating system, the
C:\Users\<user home folder>\.pentaho\metastore folder is accessible to the Carte server.
