Code review of talend jobs by reading talend job .item file


In this post i will like to explain a solution which you can develop and use to do some basic checks/code review for your talend jobs against your coding/development standards.


What this means is that if you have multiple developers working on your talend project and you have some defined code standards/conventions around talend jobs – you can validate all your jobs for this with no manual effort involved. This would save time and will reduce manual errors and make sure jobs conform to standards and best practices. Coding standards could start from naming convention for your jobs, naming convention for components in job, advance properties for components like “use cursor” option for tjdbcinput, commit size, batch size etc…

If you had to review jobs manually its a very cumbersome and daunting task and is not full proof. Its highly prone to errors. And with talend every developer can have his own way of writing jobs.The review task becomes increasingly difficult with more developers on team and more jobs to review.
