Mappings in the Native Environment

Mappings in the Native Environment

You can run a mapping in the native environment. In the native environment, the Data Integration Service runs the mapping from the Developer tool. You can run standalone mappings or mappings that are a part of a workflow.
In the native environment, you can read and process data from large unstructured and semi-structured files, Hive, or social media web sites. You can include the following objects in the mappings:
  • Hive sources
  • Flat file sources or targets in the local system or in HDFS
  • Complex file sources in the local system or in HDFS
  • Data Processor transformations to process unstructured and semi-structured file formats
  • Social media sources


We’d like to hear from you!
