Wizard Input and Output Formats Overview

Wizard Input and Output Formats Overview

You can use a wizard to create an auto-generated Data Processor transformation with input and output formats such as COBOL, XML, ASN.1, relational, or JSON. You can also use the wizard to transform user-defined formats.
Create a Data Processor transformation and select the input and output formats through the Data Processor transformation wizard. Select from existing formats or create user defined formats. For certain formats, such as ASN.1, XML, JSON, or COBOL, add a schema, specification file, example file or copybook that defines the expected structure for the input or output.
The wizard creates a transformation with relevant Script, XMap, or Library objects that serve as templates to transform the input format to the output format. The Data Processor transformation creates a transformation solution according to the formats selected and the specification file, the example file, or the copybook. The transformation might not be complete, but it contains components that you connect and customize to complete the transformation definition.
