Session task: A session task is associated with a mapping. It helps in running the
mapping. We need to specify the source and target connections etc in the Mapping tab and configure the properties according to the mapping and requirements.

Task: A command task is used to run shell scripts. These shell scripts can be used to check if the source file is there in Unix box or not and archiving the file after loading data etc. It can be used to generate extract files
also. These are just a few examples. Extra spaces in the command may result in failure of command task.
