Analyze the Data Source

Before you develop an adapter for a data source, perform a detailed analysis of the data source.
Analyze the following aspects of the data source:
  • Connection attributes that you need to connect to the data source.
  • Informatica platform data objects that you need to create to read data and write data.
  • Native data types and the possible mapping to the Informatica platform data types.
  • APIs available for the following tasks:
    • Validate connection attributes and connect to the data source
    • Browse metadata from the data source
    • Read from or write to the data source
  • Additional configuration attributes that you require to read or write data to the data source.
