Hi there,

I want to know how this is working with Flat File Sources (CSV) and XML Data Sources. When I add a source, do I also get a list in the DSE with the Tables, Columns and so on?

Will I be also able to generate the DDL for the tables?


Must the CSV and XML Files follow a specific format, or can I choose this on my own?

DTP supports CSV and XML data sources through the use of the ODA framework. ODA data providers support read-only access to the data; i.e. no DDL generation support.
The XML ODA provider allow users to specify the xsd of a XML data file, and will flatten selected elements into a tabular result set. The CSV one basically expects comma-separated data.
You can try them out with an ODA consumer application, such as BIRT (http://www.eclipse.org/birt).
