In my opinion, it is the best Open Source ETL package available. Based on Eclipse, it generates both Java and Perl ETL scripts, which can be used as Web services as well as run from a command line. The product has a really comprehensive set of components including popular business software connectors. Unfortunately, a community version is missing some of very attractive features like business rules components and check points, which have been newly introduced in a last version of the commercial Talend Integration Suite. But as a whole this is a very solid and useful package even in a free version. However, the Talend is not as easy to start with due to non-intuitive interface. But a lot of examples and tutorials solves this problem.
