Script Components

A Script component is a line or a group of lines in a Script that define input and output documents, business logic, variables that temporarily hold data, and configuration settings. The components of a Script appear in a hierarchical tree. Some components appear at the global level of the Script, and others appear as child components.
The global level of the Script contains startup components, variables, and other components such as additional input ports and Transformers. A component at the global level must have a name.
A component can have properties that control the behavior of the component. The properties of a component appear nested within it. A property can appear on one line, or it can appear as a hierarchy of properties. You can configure the properties of some components to override default settings that apply to the Data Processor transformation.
Some components, such as Parsers or Mappers, can contain other components such as Transformers or
RunParser
actions. Optionally, you can configure the
name
property of a child component.
