Executing PDI jobs from a filesystem (Simple)

This recipe guides you through simply starting a PDI job using the script Kitchen. In this case, the PDI job we are going to start is stored locally in the computer filesystem, but it could be anywhere in the network in any place that is directly accessible. You will learn how to start simple jobs both with and without a set of input parameters previously defined in the job.

Using command-line scripts is a fast way to start batches, but it is also the easiest way to schedule our jobs using our operating system's scheduler. The script accepts a set of inline arguments to pass the proper options required by the program to run our job in any specific situation.
