Metl is a simple, web-based integration platform that allows for several different styles of data integration including messaging, file based Extract/Transform/Load (ETL), and remote procedure invocation via Web Services.
Metl was built to solve fairly simple day to day integration tasks without the need for custom coding, heavy infrastructure or high costs. It can be deployed in the cloud or in an internal data center, and was built to allow developers to extend it to fit their needs by writing their own components that can be included and leveraged by the existing Metl infrastructure.
Build Me, Run Me
This project requires the Java JDK to build and run. The build currently generates a war file which can be deployed to an application server like Apache Tomcat. The war file can also be run as a standalone application, in which case it uses an embedded Jetty web server.
cd metl-assemble ./gradlew assemble
cd ../metl-war/build/libs java -jar metl.war
cp ../metl-war/build/libs/metl.war /opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.14/webapps/. /opt/apache-tomcat-8.0.14/bin/catalina restart
Or install as a standalone service on Linux or Windows:
java -jar metl.war install
To develop in Eclipse run the following and import the generated projects:
cd metl-assemble ./gradlew develop
To run in Eclipse, use the "Show Your Metl" launch shortcut.
