    Default Run PDI transformation from HTML app

    Hello,


    I'd like to execute a PDI transformation directly from an HTML/js simple app instead of the command window.


    I don't know if it's possible or if any of you have done something familiar .


    But any hint or help would be highly apreciated .

    I see this type of request come up quite regularly, and I can never understand the use-case.

    Data Integration is for routine data movement (system to system), not really for user-event.
    Could you walk me through the use-case?

    Thank you Gutlez for replying.

    In my case, my app offers the possibility to visualise and querry cube dimensions.
    It's simply made with html/js , JSP page and some libraries.

    I'd like to dedicate a web page for the user to be able to start a PDI transformation directly from the web app, without having to run it in an external way from the command window .

    I'm thinking about integrating the .ktr transformation in a batch file (.bat).
    However I'm not sure about the right way to integrate this batch file in my web page (html/js or jsp page)

    Hi emaktb

    Yes. Take a look at http://www.ibridge.be/?p=199
    It worked very well when I tried it.

    I'm still not seeing what you're trying to accomplish. If it's data outbound to a user, then implementing the PRD libraries makes much more sense (and they can call KTR files as a data-source)

    If you're running html/js, then you likely have a Tomcat engine running, so why not use the BI Server stack?
