Mapplets are created in Mapplet Designer. It can be defined as a set of transformations (no target tables,source tables can be there) which can be reused in multiple mappings.A Mapplet Must Have Output Transformation.
Transformation logics are created using Mapplets and after that they are re used in multiple mappings instead of re creating the same logic.
Other properties of Mapplets can be listed as given below.
- Changes made on the mapplet will reflect on all the instances of that Mapplets.
- Mapplets can have as many transformations but not source or target tables.
- To receive source Data for Mapplets use Input Transformation
Components of a Mapplet
A mapplet has the following components:
You can pass data into a mapplet using source definitions or Input transformations or both.When you use an Input transformation, you connect it to the source pipeline in the mapping.
Each mapplet must contain one or more Output transformations to pass data from the mapplet into the mapping.
Mapplet ports display only in the Mapping Designer. Mapplet ports consist of input ports from Input transformations and output ports from Output transformations. If a mapplet uses source
