Connect

The
Connect
component specifies a link between data holders in two components. The two data holders must have the same data type.
The following table describes the properties of the
Connect
component:
Property
Description
data_holder
Defines a data holder that is referenced in the main Parser, Serializer, or Mapper.
If the data holder is a variable, the transformation assigns it an empty default value. If the variable has a data type that does not accept an empty value, such as
xs:boolean
, ensure that the variable has a value before you run the embedded transformation.
embedded_data_holder
Defines a data holder that is referenced in the secondary Parser, Serializer, or Mapper.
name
A descriptive label for the component. This label appears in the log file and the
Events
view. Use the
name
property to identify the component that caused the event.
remark
A user-defined comment that describes the purpose or action of the component.
The
schema_connections
property of the following components can have one or more instances of the
Connect
component:
  • EmbeddedParser. Specifies where a secondary Parser stores its result in the output of the main Parser.
  • EmbeddedSerializer. Specifies a link between the input data holders of a secondary Serializer and the input data holders of the main Serializer.
  • EmbeddedMapper. Specifies a link between the input and output data holders.
  • EmbeddedStructure. Specifies a link between the targets of global and local
    StructureDefinition
    sub-elements.
