Metadata Objects Overview
Define the adapter metadata components to represent the metadata of the data source. After you define the metadata components, you can fetch and display the metadata in the Developer tool with information on the native data type, precision, and scale.
Informatica Connector Toolkit to define one or more native metadata definitions for the adapter to read from and write to the data source. The
Informatica Connector Toolkit internally uses a metadata model that represents the metadata.
The pattern classes in the metadata model describe the metadata structure. When the
Informatica Connector Toolkit publishes the adapter, it registers the metadata model in the Model repository. After the
Informatica Connector Toolkit registers the metadata model in the Model repository, you can use the Developer tool to import metadata from the data source.
