A dataset is a collection of data.

Datasets are collections of data. They can be database tables, file names, topics (Kafka), file paths (HDFS), etc. You also have the possibility to create test datasets that you enter manually and store in a test connection, and even import local files as datasets. Several datasets can be connected to the same system (One-to-many Connectivity) and are stored in reusable connections.

In the examples provided in this section, the API requests are implemented in Talend API Tester for demonstration purposes.

If you want to use Talend API Tester to test these use cases, go to Dataset and click Try in API Tester.
