Scheduling Talend Job on both Windows and Linux OS

In order to schedule a Talend Job, first we have to export the job as build job which will generate the runnable files to execute on required OS. And also all the child jobs in that project converted as jar files.

Right click on the parent/main job of your project and select Build Job option.

It will prompt a window, the job will create a zip file.

You have to choose the path and build type should be Autonomous. And also enable the option Extract the zip file. It will unzip the above zip file in the same path that you have given.

Enable Shell Launcher and Context scripts. For Shell Launcher choose All as the value to generate both runnable files for Win OS and Linux OS. It will generate two executable/runnable files like batch file for Windows OS and Shell file for Linux.
