It’s a fantastic ETL (Extract, Transform, Load).
But, because there is always a but, there is a little problem on Ubuntu 14.04 and Oracle Java: spoon, the UI of PDI, doesn’t work.
When I tried to execute spoon.sh I had the following java error:
paolo@paonote:~/kettle$ ./spoon.sh /home/paolo/kettle Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256m; support was removed in 8.0 # # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment: # # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fd12026c2a1, pid=11634, tid=140538595305216 # # JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_05-b13) (build 1.8.0_05-b13) # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.5-b02 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops) # Problematic frame: # C [libsoup-2.4.so.1+0x6c2a1] soup_session_feature_detach+0x11 # # Failed to write core dump.

I had the same error with java version 1.7 che 1.8.
I solved it editing spoon.sh script:
add the following option
to the following line:
OPT="$OPT $PENTAHO_DI_JAVA_OPTIONS -Djava.library.path=$LIBPATH -DKETTLE_HOME=$KETTLE_HOME -DKETTLE_REPOSITORY=$KETTLE_REPOSITORY -DKETTLE_USER=$KETTLE_USER -DKETTLE_PASSWORD=$KETTLE_PASSWORD -DKETTLE_PLUGIN_PACKAGES=$KETTLE_PLUGIN_PACKAGES -DKETTLE_LOG_SIZE_LIMIT=$KETTLE_LOG_SIZE_LIMIT -DKETTLE_JNDI_ROOT=$KETTLE_JNDI_ROOT"
then restart the script ./spoon.sh and magically everything works!
