Use the wizard to create a transformation with XML input or output. When you create a Data Processor transformation with XML input or output, you select an .xsd schema or XML sample file for the transformation. The schema or sample file defines the expected structure of the input or output data hierarchy. If you select a sample file, the wizard creates a schema from the sample file data hierarchy.
The wizard creates a Data Processor transformation that can contain a Parser, Mapper, XMap, or a Serializer associated with the XML hierarchy. A Mapper, XMap, or Serializer uses an input schema to define the expected input data hierarchy. An XMap, Mapper, or Parser uses an output schema to define the expected output data hierarchy. For more information about the schema syntax, see
The wizard creates the basic components or relational mapping that the transformation requires based on the input and output types. The transformation might be complete, or can serve as a starting point for further configuration.
If the transformation has structured input and output, the wizard might create an XMap that you configure to transform data from one hierarchy to another. Use the XMap editor to link the input and output schema hierarchy nodes and define the transformation logic. For more information about the XMap object and editor, see
If the transformation has relational input or output that you want to transform from structured data or to structured data, the wizard creates a relational mapping. The
panel in the
view shows the hierarchical schema nodes and the relational ports. Use the
