Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1069) Transformer or hook to allow tagging data at ingestion time
Date Wed, 08 Oct 2014 17:53:33 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1069:

Hi Mary,

You don't "hook java code in" to an existing transformation connector.  You write your own
transformation connector.

The book has general knowledge on how to write connectors, but doesn't yet have a chapter
on transformation connectors.  I would start with Chapters 5 & 6, and then have a look
at Chapter 9 (which is most similar to transformation connectors).  Then, look at the actual
source code of transformation connectors that ship with MCF, for example connectors/forcedmetadata.

For example, we want to analyze the file name at ingestion time at determine the application
type and create a field in the index called applicationType which is set to WORD for mimetypes
of word and so on. Is there a hook or method available currently to be able to accomplish
this type of functionality?
