Using an adapter in the Integration Flow Designer

About this task

In the Integration Flow Designer, while accessing the Launcher or Command Server execution settings for a map, you can use the adapter as a source to retrieve files or as a target to transfer files.

The Execution Mode of the system component determines the execution settings modified to use a resource adapter.

If the Execution Mode setting is Launcher, edit the Launcher Settings for that system component.

If the Execution Mode setting is Command Server, edit the Command Server Settings.

For documentation purposes, these settings are referred to as execution settings regardless of the execution mode selected.

You can use the adapter as a source to retrieve files or as a target to transfer files.

For example, to override database-specific adapter settings in an input card or to use the adapter for a source, access the execution settings for a map. From the GET > Source list in the execution settings of the map, select Database. In the GET > Source > Command setting, specify the adapter commands.

An example of a database-specific adapter command is as follows:

-M c:\MDQfiles\Orders.mdq -DN Parts -TE+

where -M and -DN are used to specify usage of a database/query file named Orders.mdq and a database named Parts. The -TE+ command causes database trace information containing only errors occurring during map execution to be produced and appended to the existing trace file.
