Startup Component

Startup Component

A startup component defines the component that starts the processing in the Data Processor transformation. Configure the startup component on the
Overview
view.
A Data Processor transformation can contain multiple components to process data. Each component might contain other components. You must identify which component is the entry point for the transformation.
When you configure the startup component in a Data Processor transformation, you can choose an XMap, Library, or a Script component as the startup component. In terms of Scripts, you can select one of the following types of components:
  • Parser. Converts source documents to XML. The input can have any format, such as text, HTML, Word, PDF, or HL7.
  • Mapper. Converts an XML source document to another XML structure or schema.
  • Serializer. Converts an XML file to an output document of any format.
  • Streamer. Splits large input documents, such as multi-gigabyte data streams, into segments.
  • Transformer. Modifies the data in any format. Adds, removes, converts, or changes text. Use Transformers with a Parser, Mapper, or Serializer. You can also run a Transformer as stand-alone component.
If the startup component is not an XMap or Library, you can also configure the startup component in a Script instead of in the

view.
