Creating a Data Processor Transformation Overview

Creating a Data Processor Transformation Overview

In this lesson, you create a Data Processor transformation with the New Transformation wizard in the Developer tool. To set up the Developer tool, you connect to the Model repository and create a project and folder to store your work. If the domain includes more than one Data Integration Service, you must also select a default service to preview data and run mappings.

Lesson Concepts

A mapping uses a Data Processor transformation to transform documents from one format to another. The Data Processor transformation processes unstructured and semi-structured file formats in a mapping. When you create a Data Processor transformation with the wizard, the wizard creates a transformation with relevant Script, XMap, or Library objects that serve as templates to transform the input format to the output format. A Data Processor transformation can also contain components that perform other transformation tasks.
The Data Processor transformation creates a transformation solution according to the formats selected and the specification file, the example file, or the copybook. The transformation contains components that you connect and customize to complete the transformation definition. In this example, you create a transformation that receives hierarchical data, transforms the data, and sends rows of relational data to output ports.
