CQ Connector date transformation from date string


Brian Gillan (3215330) | asked Oct 30 '08, 4:12 p.m.
It looks as though the CQ Connector only provides date transformation
from the internal CQ DATETIME format, is that correct? I have dates
represented in a string form such as MM/DD/YY, is there any way to
transform these with the provided transformers, or do I need to create a
new transformer?

If the later, has someone already done this?

Thanks, Brian

Hello Brian,

we ran into the same situation, but didn't have to proceed. About solving
it our thoughts where a hidden field in CQ with a hook to convert the data
for RTC. I don't think you can do something elaborate in the sync rules.

Thanks John.

Is there any easy way to intervene and modify the data before it gets
processed by the synch rule?

Assuming you're willing to write Java code, then yes - create a value transformer :-)
