What r the methods for creating reusable transforamtions?
Total Answers and Comments: 2
Two methods1.Design it in the transformation developer.2.Promote a standard transformation from the mapping designer.After U add a transformation to themapping , U can promote it to the status of reusable transformation.Once U promote a standard transformation to reusable status,U can demote it to a standard transformationat any time.If u change the properties of a reusable transformation in mapping,U can revert it to the original reusabletransformation properties by clicking the revert button.RE: What r the methods for creating reusable transfora...You can design using 2 methods
using transformation developer 2.create normal one and promote it to reusable

Source definitions.
Definitions of database objects (tables, views, synonyms) or files that providesource data.
Target definitions.
Definitions of database objects or files that contain the target data.
Multi-dimensional metadata.
Target definitions that are configured as cubes and dimensions.
A set of source and target definitions along with transformations containing business logicthat you build into the transformation. These are the instructions that the Informatica Server uses totransform and move data.
Reusable transformations.
Transformations that you can use in multiple mappings.
A set of transformations that you can use in multiple mappings.
Sessions and workflows.
Sessions and workflows store information about how and when theInformatica Server moves data. A workflow is a set of instructions that describes how and when to run tasksrelated to extracting, transforming, and loading data. A session is a type of task that you can put in aworkflow. Each session corresponds to a single mapping.Maping parameter represents a constant value that U can define before running a session.A mapping
parameter retains the same value throughout the entire session.When u use the maping parameter ,U declare and use the parameter in a maping or maplet.Then define thevalue of parameter in a parameter file for the session.Unlike a mapping parameter,a maping variable represents a value that can change throughout thesession.The informatica server saves the value of maping variable to the repository at the end of session runand uses that value next time U run the session.
RE: mapping varibles
 Please refer to the documentation for more understanding.Mapping variables have two identities:
Start value
Current valueStart value
Current value
( when the session starts the execution of the undelying mapping)
Start value
Current value
( while the session is in progress and the variable value changes in one oremore occasions)
Current value
at the end of the session is nothing but the
start value
for the subsequent run of the samesession. 
Can U use the maping parameters or variables created in one maping into another maping?
NO.We can use mapping parameters or variables in any transformation of the same maping or mapplet in whichU have created maping parameters or variables
How can U improve session performance in aggregator transformation?
use sorted input:1. use a sorter before the aggregator 2. donot forget to check the option on the aggregator that tell the aggregator that the input is sorted on thesame keys as group by.the key order is also very important.
What is aggregate cache in aggregator transforamtion?
When you run a workflow that uses an Aggregator transformation, the Informatica Server creates index anddata caches in memory to process the transformation. If the Informatica Server requires more space, itstores overflow values in cache files.
What r the diffrence between joiner transformation and source qualifier transformation?
U can join hetrogenious data sources in joiner transformation which we can not achieve in source qualifier transformation.U need matching keys to join two relational sources in source qualifier transformation.Where as u doesn’tneed matching keys to join two sources.Two relational sources should come from same datasource in sourcequalifier.U can join relatinal sourceswhich r coming from diffrent sources also.
Source qualifier – Homogeneous sourceJoiner – Heterogeneous source
In which condtions we can not use joiner transformation(Limitaions of joiner transformation)?
Both pipelines begin with the same original data source.Both input pipelines originate from the same Source Qualifier transformation.Both input pipelines originate from the same Normalizer transformation.Both input pipelines originate from the same Joiner transformation.Either input pipelines contains an Update Strategy transformation.Either input pipelines contains a connected or unconnected Sequence Generator transformation.This is no longer valid in version 7.2Now we can use a joiner even if the data is coming from the same source.SK
what r the settiings that u use to cofigure the joiner transformation?
Master and detail source
Type of join
Condition of the join
the Joiner transformation supports the following join types, which you set in the Properties tab:
Normal (Default)
Master Outer 
Detail Outer 
Full Outer 
What r the join types in joiner transformation?
Normal (Default) -- only matching rows from both master and detailMaster outer -- all detail rows and only matching rows from master Detail outer -- all master rows and only matching rows from detailFull outer -- all rows from both master and detail ( matching or non matching)
