Processing Settings

Processing Settings

The processing settings define how the Data Processor transformation processes an element without a defined datatype. The settings affect Scripts. The settings do not affect elements that an XMap processes.
The following table describes the processing settings that affect XML processing in Scripts:
Setting
Description
Treat as xs:string
The Data Processor transformation treats an element with no type as a string. In the
Choose XPath
dialog box, the element or attribute appears as a single node.
Treat as xs:anyType
The Data Processor transformation treats an element with no type as anyType. In the
Choose XPath
dialog box, the element or attribute appears as a tree of nodes. One node is of xs:string type, and all named complex data types appear as tree nodes.
The following table describes a processing setting that affects Streamer processing:
Setting
Description
Chunk size
This setting defines the amount of data that the Streamer reads each time from an input file stream. The Data Processor transformation applies this setting to a Streamer with a file input.
The following table describes a processing setting that affects hierarchical to relational transformation processing:
Setting
Description
Normalize XML input
This setting determines if the Data Processor transformation normalizes XML input. By default, the transformation performs normalization for XML input. In some cases, you might choose to skip automatic normalization to increase performance.
