Knime Batch Mode - One instance, several workflows


Hi everybody,

I am developing a system which automatically run workflows in batch mode according to user needs. However, for each workflow selected by the user, a Knime instance is created and then closed. This implies at least 10 seconds at the beginning of each workflow to launch Knime and load its plugins.

It would be really efficient if I can remove the 10-second delays for each workflow. Is there a way to open a persistent Knime instance which could be used to launch several workflows ?

Thanks in advance for your help.



This is exactly what the KNIME Server is for :-)


Thanks for your reply.

However, Knime Server is not a free solution and provides far more features than I need. Is there a way to do it with the Desktop version ?



No, you can only execute one workflow at a time with the BatchExecutor.
