    Question is it possible to run Pentaho using other tool but bat files and Win Task Scheduler?

    hi everybody,
    I am new on Pentaho kettle, and so far, it is not all clear for me.

    Hope you guys may help me.

    Well, I am gonna expose the scenario.

    I have created a simple tranformation on Pentaho and then a job, where I can execute that transformation. Everything is working fine with no errors. Well, now I want to "deploy" that job in production. When I sad deploy, I ment, I need schedule it and run it somehow without using the PDI. I forgot to mention, the PDI is running on Windows Server 2012.

    Should I use batch files in order to execute the job?

    If so, I have no other option but schedule it with the Windows Task or another scheduler, is taht right? doesn't the PDI able to do that?

    whether I have no better option, may you indicate me some deployment architecture best pratice for Pentaho?

    I am not sure if I made myself clear, but I hope someone may help me.

    thanks in advance.

    For CE, no, the only practical option is to run it from the batch file.

    Other options:
    1) Buy EE, and set up the DIServer. It has a built in scheduler that you can schedule jobs in.
    2) Write a custom Java application that will run PDI jobs, and will allow you to schedule jobs.

    Other option:
    3) Use Jenkins:
