Target

A target is an end point of a flow and defines how data is passed to an external application for storage, analysis, or other purposes. A flow may have multiple targets.

Each target specifies:

  • an input stream

  • an output adapter (writer) to pass data to an external system such as a database, data warehouse, or cloud storage (for more detailed information, see Targets)

  • with some adapters, a formatter that defines how to write the data (for example, JSONFormatter or XMLFormattter)

  • properties required by the selected adapter, such as a host name, directory path, authentication credentials, and so on

See PosApp for a discussion of one example.
