Talend updates data tools to 5.1.0
Talend has updated all the applications that run on its Open Studio unified platform to version 5.1.0. Talend's Open Studio is an Eclipse-based environment that hosts the company's Data Integration, Big Data, Data Quality, MDM (Master Data Management) and ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) products. The system allows a user to, using the Data Integration as an example, use a GUI to define processes that can extract data from the web, databases, files or other resources, process that data, and feed it on to other systems. The resulting definition can then be compiled into a production application.
In the 5.10 update, OpenStudio for Data Integration has, according to the release notes, been given enhanced XML mapping and support for XML documents in its SOAP, JMS, File and Mom components. A new component has also been added to help manage Kerberos security. Open Studio for Data Quality has been enhanced with new ways to apply an analysis on multiple files, and the ability to drill down through business rules to see the invalid, as well as valid, records selected by the rules.
ESB and Open Studio for ESB appear to be the most revised of the products, with the release notes documenting improvements to the REST and SOAP services, an improved route builder, and improvements to the runtime system which include adding Nagios Monitoring support. There are also more, improved examples of using ESB. Open Studio for Master Data Management has seen enhancements in the development environment, with searching and filtering available as ways to view an entity, and in the web user interface with improvements in visual cues, easier image storage and resizable sliding panels.
The updated versions of the software are available to download from Talend's download page, with versions for Windows, Mac and other platforms available to download. Talend ESB and Big Data are both under the Apache 2 Licence, while Open Studio for ESB, Data Integration, Data Quality, and MDM are under the GPLv2. Links to the source code for the products are also available. Talend releases its core products under open source licences and then market enhancements such as version control and enterprise repository management.
