Getting Started with Talend Open Studio for Data Integration

By: Jonathan Bowen

Overview of this book

Talend Open Studio for Data Integration (TOS) is an open source graphical development environment for creating custom integrations between systems. It comes with over 600 pre-built connectors that make it quick and easy to connect databases, transform files, load data, move, copy and rename files and connect individual components in order to define complex integration processes. "Getting Started with Talend Open Studio for Data Integration" illustrates common uses and scenarios in a simple, practical manner and, building on knowledge as the book progresses, works towards more complex integration solutions. TOS is a code generator and so does a lot of the "heavy lifting"ù for you. As such, it is a suitable tool for experienced developers and non-developers alike. You'll start by learning how to construct some common integrations tasks ñ transforming files and extracting data from a database, for example. These building blocks form a "toolkit"ù of techniques that you will learn how to apply in many different situations. By the end of the book, once complex integrations will appear easy and you will be your organization's integration expert! Best of all, TOS makes integrating systems fun!

Talend documentation

Talend provides excellent documentation and readers are encouraged to download and use this as they learn about developing with the Studio.

Talend provides:

  • A prerequisites guide—the hardware and software requirements you will need to run the Studio

  • A software installation guide

  • A user guide, which introduces the concepts and principles of the studio tool

  • A component reference guide, which provides information on each of the components in the Palette, with configuration guides and explanations of all of the configuration parameters

The component reference guide is particularly useful and is often a "go-to" document when developing jobs. It provides example uses for most of the components and illustrates how these examples are set up, giving developers a set of mini-tutorials to use for components that they are less familiar with.
