Transformation Discussion Forum
Filter Discussion Forum • A mapplet is a reusable object that we create in the Mapplet Designer. • It contains a set of transformations and lets us reuse that Expression Router Sorter Rank Transaction Control We need to use same set of 5 transformations in say 10 mappings. So instead of making 5 transformations in every 10 mapping, we create a mapplet of these 5 transformations. Now we use this mapplet in all 10 mappings. Example: To create a surrogate key in target. We create a mapplet using a stored procedure to create Primary key for target table. We give target table name and key column name as input to mapplet and get the Surrogate key as output. Mapplets help simplify mappings in the following ways: • Include source definitions: Use multiple source definitions and source qualifiers to provide source data for a mapping. • Accept data from sources in a mapping • Include multiple transformations: As many transformations as we Informatica Real Time Interview Questions Informatica Experienced Interview Questions part1 Informatica Experienced Interview Questions part2 Informatica Experienced Interview Questions part3 Informatica Experienced Interview Questions part4 Data Warehousing concept Based Interview Questions Mapplet Output: The output of a mapplet is not connected to any target table. Mapplet input can originate from a source definition and/or from an Input transformation in the mapplet. We can create multiple pipelines in a mapplet. • We use Mapplet Input transformation to give input to mapplet. • Use of Mapplet Input transformation is optional.

Each Output transformation in a mapplet represents one output group in a mapplet. • Contain unused ports: We do not have to connect all mapplet input and output ports in a mapping. Mapplet Input:
