    Default Calling external Java programs

    Hello ,

    First let me congratulate the team on the great piece of software. Good stuff!!

    I would like to call some external java libraries, programs from Kettle. Ideally I might be calling these programs from the Java Script component. How do do this?

    Default RE: Calling external Java programs

    The ideal way of calling external libs is by using a plugin.

    It's not that hard to do. Please see the sample plugin in Documents/Development pacakges. (

    However, you can indeed also use Rhino Javascript.

    Please see the documentation of JavaScript here:

    For example:


    f = new
