Creating a Complex Data Type Definition

Creating a Complex Data Type Definition

A complex data type definition represents the schema of the data of type struct. You can create a complex data type definition for a mapping or a mapplet on the Type Definition Library tab of the mapping editor.
  1. In the Developer tool, open the mapping or mapplet where you want to create a complex data type definition.
  2. In the
    Outline
    view, select the
    Type Definition Library
    to view the
    Type_Definition_Library
    tab in the mapping editor.
  3. Right-click an empty area of the editor and click
    New Complex Data Type Definition
    .
    An empty complex data type definition appears on the Type Definition Library tab of the mapping editor.
    An empty complex data type definition with the name Complex_Data_Type_Definition that contains a Name column and a Type column.
  4. Optionally, change the name of the complex data type definition.
  5. Click the
    New
    button to add elements to the data type definition with a name and a type.
    The data type of the element can be of primitive or complex data type.
