I couldn't find any info on this short of spinning up a Nomad cluster and experimenting so maybe someone here may be able to help.
Saying you want to run 100 iterations of a batch java job, each with a different set of parameters and get the resulting output files back.
1) does Nomad accept the concept of
input_files where you point to a local file on your computer and it will distribute such file?
# in HTCondor would be something like this transfer_input_files = MyCalculator.jar,logback.xml
2) does Nomad bring back the results of such calculation, say
*.csv files that were produced?
# this would do it in HTCondor should_transfer_files = YES when_to_transfer_output = ON_EXIT transfer_output_files = /output_dir
3) does nomad allow the usage of parameters in the way condor does, allowing you to send a job with
n params that will then be distributed as multiple jobs to the cluster?
# this would do it in HTCondor Arguments = x=1 Queue (...) Arguments = x=100 Queue
