This section describes the changes to the Address Validator transformation.
The Address Validator transformation contains the following updates to address functionality:
Effective in version 10.2, the Address Validator transformation uses version
of the Informatica Address Verification software engine. The engine enables the features that Informatica adds to the Address Validator transformation in version
Previously, the transformation used version
of the Informatica Address Verification software engine.
Effective in version 10.2, you can configure a single mapping to return the Choumei Aza code for a current address in Japan. To return the code, select the Current Choumei Aza Code JP port. You can use the code to find the current version of any legacy address that Japan Post recognizes.
Previously, you used the New Choumei Aza Code JP port to return incremental changes to the Choumei Aza code for an address. The transformation did not include the Current Choumei Aza Code JP port. You needed to configure two or more mappings to verify a current Choumei Aza code and the corresponding address.
Effective in version 10.2, you can configure the Address Validator transformation to return postal, administrative, and traditional county information from the Royal Mail Postcode Address File. The transformation returns the information on the Province ports.
Previously, the transformation returned postal county information when the information was postally relevant.
The following table shows the ports that you can select for each information type:
