Design, Deploy, and Manage Data Jobs in Eclipse

IRI Workbench™ is the free graphical user interface (GUI) and integrated development environment (IDE) for all IRI data management and protection software products, and the Voracity platform which includes them. Available on Windows, MacOS and Linux, Workbench drives jobs through proven IRI CoSort and Hadoop engines while leveraging all that Eclipse™ offers.1


IRI Workbench features metadata creation, conversion, discovery, and application wizards to help you generate, deploy, and manage the simple job scripts (SortCL, etc.), data definition files (DDF), and XML workflows common to all IRI software. In the same pane of glass, you can also administer your databases and develop and work with applications in any other language or plug-in supported in Eclipse.

Use Any Interactive Design Feature

  • Fit-for-purpose new job creation (script generation) wizards

  • Help-enabled graphical dialogs and form editors to modify metadata and job specs

  • State-of-the-art visual workflow designer using Sirius graphics (enlarge the screenshot below)

  • Java API to feed or consume Voracity job metadata from your own applications

Do It All in the Same Pane of Glass

  • Data discovery, profiling, classification, and metadata definition

  • E-R, workflow, and transform mapping diagrams

  • Everything you need, simplified into one GUI built on Eclipse™

Within the wizards and dialogs of IRI Workbench are also data mapping, MDM, and rule application facilities. Each created or imported job produces one or more standalone job scripts or configuration files to drive the above tasks.

Modify jobs with GUI components or the syntax-aware editor. Execute jobs from the GUI, local or remote system command line, a batch script, or API call. See all the job deployment options here.

IRI jobs are defined in simple, portable text files that you can run anywhere the back-end software is licensed. The scripts' data and job definitions all use the shared metadata of the Sort Control Language (SortCL) 4GL program known best to CoSort users and Voracity solution architects.

Job scripts, workflows, rules, and other metadata managed in the IRI Workbench are easy to search and share with built-in Eclipse functionality. Free Eclipse plug-ins like GIT and SVN support team sharing and version control, plus metadata lineage and impact analysis.

1. Eclipse plug-ins to IRI Workbench allow you to do many other things in relation to, or apart from, IRI jobs, in the same environment. For example, you can develop and run database, Java, or MapReduce code -- or Python, Perl, or other shell scripts. You can also code and run SQL programs using built-in editors, test and run command line operations with tools like WickedShell, or use fit-for-purpose plug-ins for Knime, R, CDT, et al ... all in the same pane of glass.
