Ensemble data transformations

Ensemble provides a kind of class called a data transformation; it defines a set of rules for creating a new Ensemble message or modifying an existing Ensemble message. There are two general kinds of data transformations:

  • Ones based on Ens.DataTransformDTL

    These use the Ensemble Data Transformation Language (DTL). You can create these data transformations graphically in the Management Portal. Later you can modify them there or in Studio. For details, see Developing DTL Transformations.

  • Ones based on Ens.DataTransform

    These do not use DTL and can be edited only in Studio.

Availability: All Ensemble-enabled namespaces.
