Features of Type A Metadata Template

The Informatica Connector Toolkit uses the Type A metadata pattern template to define the metadata pattern for flat records.
The Type A metadata pattern template supports the following features:
Catalog
A catalog is a container for metadata objects that you can import.
Container
A container is a collection of packages.
Package
A package contains flat records. A package may also contain other packages.
Flat record
A flat record represents the structure of the native metadata object that you can import. The flat record structure contains fields, relationships, index, and constraints.
Field
A field is a data structure for a single piece of data in a data source.
Record relationship
A record relationship represents the relationship between flat records.
Index
An index represents a native index that orders the flat records or uniquely identifies a flat record.
Constraints
A constraint represents the unique key and primary key for a flat record.
