Talend Component Kit methodology

Developing new components using the Component Kit framework includes:

  1. Creating a project using the starter or the Talend IntelliJ plugin. This step allows to build the skeleton of the project. It consists in:

    1. Defining the general configuration model for each component in your project.

    2. Generating and downloading the project archive from the starter.

    3. Compiling the project.

  2. Importing the compiled project in your IDE. This step is not required if you have generated the project using the IntelliJ plugin.

  3. Implementing the components, including:

    1. Registering the components by specifying their metadata: family, categories, version, icon, type and name.

    2. Defining the layout and configurable part of the components.

    3. Defining the execution logic of the components, also called runtime.

  4. Testing the components.

  5. Deploying the components to Talend Studio or Cloud applications.

Optionally, you can use services. Services are predefined or user-defined configurations that can be reused in several components.
