References

You can define transformation references, such as schema or mapplet references, by selecting a schema or mapplet to serve as a reference. Some Data Processor transformations require a hierarchical schema to define the input or output hierarchy for relevant components in the transformation. To use the schema in the transformation, you define a schema reference for the transformation. You can also use a specialized action named the RunMapplet action to call a mapplet from a Data Processor transformation. To call a mapplet, you must first define a mapplet reference for the transformation.
You can define transformation references, such as schema or mapplet references, in the transformation
References
view.

Schema References

The Data Processor transformation references schema objects in the Model repository. The schema objects can exist in the repository before you create the transformation. You can also import schemas from the transformation
References
view.
The schema encoding must match the input encoding for Serializer or Mapper objects. The schema encoding must match the output encoding for Parser or Mapper objects. Configure the working encoding in the transformation
Settings
view.
A schema can reference additional schemas. The Developer tool shows the namespace and prefix for each schema that the Data Processor transformation references. When you reference multiple schemas with empty namespaces the transformation is not valid.

Mapplet References

You can call a mapplet from a Data Processor transformation with the RunMapplet action. Before you add the RunMapplet action to a Data Processor transformation component, you must first define a reference to the mapplet that you want to call.
