Simple Segments

Simple Segments

A simple segment has an opening marker that identifies where it starts, and a closing marker that identifies where it ends. Thus, a simple segment has the following structure:
Opening marker Data Closing marker
The Streamer passes the segment to the specified transformation component, such as a Parser.
It is possible to omit some of the markers from the Streamer definition. For example:
  • If you omit the opening marker of the source header, the header is assumed to start at the beginning of the source.
  • If you omit the closing marker, then the segment ends at the opening marker of the next segment.
