A connection to the source database. Choose variable or relational from the list. Select the variable name or select a source connection from the list. You cannot use a Hadoop HDFS connection as a variable when you configure a source or a target.
For Hadoop sources, you can select a Hive or an HDFS connection.
Source Connection Directory Path
The path to the flat file source directory. Appears if flat file sources are present.
The name of the source file. Required if the source is a flat file. Default is <name of selected source>.dat.
A connection to the target database or the target file. Choose variable, relational, or flat file from the list. Select a target connection or variable name from the list. For Hadoop targets, you can select a Hive or an HDFS connection.
If you enter the target connection as a variable, ensure that you define the scope of the variable as
Integration Servicein the parameter file.
In a multinode setup, if you use parameters to enter the connection information, the parameter file must be present on the node on which the Test Data Manager Service runs. The file must be in the same directory path on both nodes.
The name of the target file. Required if the target is a flat file. Default is <name of selected source>.out.
The file encoding type. Required if the target is a flat file. If the source is a flat file, the default type is what the flat file contains.
If the source is relational, default is MS Windows Latin 1 (ANSI), superset of Latin1. You can select the type of flat file encoding that you want in the target.
The format of a flat file. Required if the target is a flat file.
You can choose one of the following options:
A character that separates columns of data. Required if the source is a flat file and if the file format is delimited. Default is a comma (,).
A character that separates rows of data. Required if the source is a flat file. Default is \012 LF (\n).
Select No Quotes, Single Quote, or Double Quotes. If you select a quote character, the Integration Service ignores delimiter characters within the quote characters. Therefore, the Integration Service uses quote characters to escape the delimiter.
For example, a source file uses a comma as a delimiter and contains the following row:
If you select the optional single quote character, the Integration Service ignores the commas within the quotes and reads the row as four fields.
If you do not select the optional single quote, the Integration Service reads six separate fields.
When the Integration Service reads two optional quote characters within a quoted string, it treats them as one quote character. For example, the Integration Service reads the following quoted string as
Additionally, if you select an optional quote character, the Integration Service reads a string as a quoted string if the quote character is the first character of the field.
You can improve session performance if the source file does not contain quotes or escape characters.
Optional. You can choose to include the headers in the target flat file. Default is Yes.
