You can use the Java code in this example to create and compile an active Java transformation.
Use a Java transformation to process employee data for a fictional company. The Java transformation reads input rows from a flat file source and writes output rows to a flat file target. The source file contains employee data, including the employee identification number, name, job title, and the manager identification number.
The transformation finds the manager name for a given employee based on the manager identification number and generates output rows that contain employee data. The output data includes the employee identification number, name, job title, and the name of the employee’s manager. If the employee has no manager in the source data, the transformation assumes the employee is at the top of the hierarchy in the company organizational chart.
The transformation logic assumes that the employee job titles are arranged in descending order in the source file.
To create and run the mapping in this example, perform the following steps:
Create the source file.
Create a comma-delimited flat file in a directory that the Secure Agent can access.
Configure the mapping.
Add a source, target, and Java transformation to the mapping, and configure the fields.
Configure the Java code snippets in the Java transformation.
Enter code snippets in the Import Packages, Helper Code, and On Input Row sections of the Java editor.
