Naming Convention

A naming convention makes it easy to identify the files that belong to an adapter and the usage of those files

Use the following guidelines when you name the adapter files:

• Determine a name for the adapter. Use the adapter name as a prefix for the adapter file names. The adapter name is an alphanumeric string that can include the uppercase and lowercase letters A to Z and the numbers 0 to 9. The first character of the name must be a letter.

• Determine a unique name to identify the company building the adapter. The company name is included in the package name for the adapter classes.

• Use the adapter name when you create a directory for the adapter in the Informatica directory:

            INFA_HOME\plugins\dynamic\AdapterName

The following table lists the recommended naming convention for adapter files:
