How do you make custom DCC ETLs?

Ryan Boyce (3412) | asked May 26 '17, 11:17 a.m.

 We are trying to add custom ETLs to DCC, version 6.0.3. We read that this was possible here:

The article says you can use the built in ETL files as a guide when doing this, and it points you to a JAR file, where these files are supposed to be. We cracked open this jar file, and all we could find were .CLASS files, which we do not know how to read, and do not look to helpful anyway. 

Has anyone tried to add custom ETL jobs to DCC, and can you give us any guidance?

Ryan can you please contact IBM support and ask for a screen sharing session? They will guide you through the steps. To unzip the jar file, I used 7-zip.

 Ok. Thanks. I'll try that.

You can find them inside the following JAR file: <server directory="" install=""> /server/conf/dcc/sites/dcc-updatesite/plugins/ </server>

Copy this JAR file to a location outside of DCC and use any uncompression tool to locate the ETL files in the mapping folder.

The folder is named: mapping.

 That was exactly what the wiki site I referenced told me to do. I did that and then ran into the problem I elaborated on in my post. I found no Mapping folder inside this unzipped jar file. All there are are .CLASS files and a manifest file.
