Data Transformation Service Types
When you create a project in Data Transformation Studio, you choose a DataTransformation service type to define the project. Data Transformation has thefollowing types of services that transform data:
. Converts source documents to XML. The output of a parser is alwaysXML. The input can have any format, such as text, HTML, Word, PDF, or HL7.
. Converts an XML file to an output document of any format. Theoutput of a serializer can be any format, such as a text document, an HTMLdocument, or a PDF.
. Converts an XML source document to another XML structure or schema. A mapper processes the XML input similarly to a serializer. Itgenerates XML output similarly to a parser. The input and the output are fullystructured XML.
. Modifies the data in any format. Adds, removes, converts, or changes text. Use transformers with a parser, mapper, or serializer. You canalso run a transformer as stand-alone component.
Splits large input documents, such as multi-gigabyte data streams,into segments. The streamer processes documents that have multiplemessages or records in them, such as HIPAA or EDI files.For more information about creating projects with Data Transformation, seeGetting Started with Data Transformation.
Unstructured Data Transformation Components
The Unstructured Data transformation contains the following tabs:
Enter the name and description of the transformation. Thenaming convention for an Unstructured Data transformation isUD_TransformationName. You can also make the Unstructured Datatransformation reusable.
. Configure the Unstructured Data transformation general propertiessuch as IsPartitionable and Output is Repeatable.
. Modify Unstructured Data transformation settings such as inputtype, output type, and service name.
. Configure Unstructured Data transformation ports and attributes.
Define a hierarchy of output groups and ports to enablethe Unstructured Data transformation to write rows to relational targets.
