Metadata Components

Metadata Components

The metadata components in the Informatica Connector Toolkit represent the metadata of the data source and the associated operations to read from and write to the data source.
Use the Informatica Connector Toolkit to define the following metadata components:
Native metadata
Define one or more native metadata objects to represent the metadata of the native source. Associate the native metadata objects with operations to read metadata from a data source, look up metadata from a data source, or write metadata to a data source.
Record extensions
You can define record extensions to define additional metadata for records. For example, you can add the attribute query hint as a record extension.
Field extensions
You can define field extensions to define additional metadata for fields. For example, you can add the attribute isNullable as a field extension to indicate that the field can contain a null value.
Procedure Extension
You can define procedure extensions to define additional metadata for procedures.
Parameter extension
You can define parameter extensions to define additional metadata for parameters.
Call Capability
You can define additional attributes to create a read or a write call to a procedure.
Read capability
Define attributes that you can read from the data source. You can also define whether the adapter supports look up of data, join operations, and filter operations when the adapter reads from the data source.
Write capability
Define attributes that you can write to the data source. You can also define whether the adapter supports upsert operation when the adapter writes to the target.
