Ever wondered how to get your models from Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (SDDM) in to ODI data models? The most common practice is to generate and execute the physical DDL scripts from SDDM to the target database. Another technique is possible leveraging the ODI SDK and the SDDM SDK - that's what I will illustrate here. There is an example script posted here on the java.net site.
There is an end to end demo viewlet below to see the script in action, check it out;
The viewlet shows the transformation script in action creating the ODI model from the Data Modeler design, here's a peek at the script in action;
In the viewlet you will see how I added the groovy scripting engine as an engine for SDDM - I can then leverage my groovy skills and the ODI SDK to build the script and provide useful capabilities.
This script is publicly available at link above, take, enhance and comment! Join the communities on LinkedIn for Oracle Data Integration and the OTN forum to learn and exhange with other members of the community.
