Naming Convention

Naming Convention

A naming convention makes it easy to identify the files that belong to an adapter and the usage of those files.
Use the following guidelines when you name the adapter files:
  • Determine a name for the adapter. Use the adapter name as a prefix for the adapter file names. The adapter name is an alphanumeric string that can include the uppercase and lowercase letters A to Z and the numbers 0 to 9. The first character of the name must be a letter.
  • Determine a unique name to identify the company building the adapter. The company name is included in the package name for the adapter classes.
  • Use the adapter name when you create a directory for the adapter in the Informatica directory:
    INFA_HOME\plugins\dynamic\AdapterName
The following table lists the recommended naming convention for adapter files:
Component Naming Format
Package for the adapter definition and type system classes com.vendorname.adaptername.connection
Adapter definition class AdapterNameDefn
Type system class AdapterNameTypeSystem
Resource file for the connection management user interface AdapterNameBundle.properties or AdapterNameBundle_lang.properties
