Setup the ODI Metadata Repositories


Oracle Data Integrator uses 2 types of repositories:

The Master Repository is where all the information on the topology of resources,
security and version management of projects and data models is stored. Only one
master repository is required for typical Oracle Data Integrator installations.

The Work Repository is where the information on data models, projects, and their use
is stored. A work repository can be linked with only one master repository for version
management purposes.

These repositories are stored in a relational database accessible in client/server mode from the
different Oracle Data Integrator modules. For this workshop, we will use the Oracle XE
database to store these repositories.
Note: For this workshop, you may skip the creation of the master and work repositories
by running a script that will import the repository schemas into Oracle XE. If you wish
to do so, please refer to Appendix A: Importing the ODI Repository Schemas.

Setup Oracle Users


First, we need to create Oracle database users for the Master and Work Repositories.
1. From the Oracle XE Database Home Page, login using the system account with the
password you specified.

Data Integration Scenario: Permit Processing


Time estimate: 10 minutes
For this workshop, we will work on the integration requirements of a Permit Processing
application. The Permit Processing application is used for receiving and handling permit
requests. Aside from real-time permit processing, the Permit Processing application needs to
process permit requests in batches coming from various groups.
Multiple permit requests that include permit and applicant information are sent in a flat file.
The file typically contains more than 10000 requests including applicant information. This file
has to be extracted, transformed and loaded into the Permit Application tables. Background
check data coming from another relational database system will need to be merged to each
permit request as well.
Before the data gets loaded to the Permit Application, we need to make sure that the data is
valid (based on certain business validation rules). We also need to make sure that we only
process data that has changed from the background check system and that we archive the
permit files after processing it successfully. Lastly, there is a limited-time window involved
for processing, so we need to make sure that the data processing is done in the most efficient
manner.

Metadata Repository

In this workshop, you will focus on building out this data integration scenario. You will use
the Oracle Data Integrator to do the following:
1. Capture the metadata information of these systems into ODIs metadata repository:
Permit Request flat-file
Permit Application RDBMS
Background Check RDBMS
2. Filter, transform and load applicant data into the Permit Application.
3. Merge permit requests with the background check data.
4. Create data validation rules and capture validation errors.

Confidential

Page 19 of 79

5. Use change-data-capture (CDC) to process changed data from the background check
system
6. Arrange these tasks in a data integration package with error notifications and file archival
after successful completion.
Before continuing, please perform the following tasks:
1. Open up the ODIWorkshop-MyFiles.zip file from the workshop DVD.
2. Unzip the file to your C:\ drive. This will create a directory called C:\MyFiles. This
includes the Permit Request flat file (permit_batch.csv in the CSV subdirectory) and
database scripts that will be utilized during the workshop.
3. Start a command prompt window. Go to Windows Start > Run and enter cmd.
4. From the command prompt, navigate to c:\MyFiles and enter the following commands:

sqlplus system/oracle
(Note: replace oracle with the password you specified during installation of
OracleXE.)

5. At the SQL Prompt, enter the following:


@workshopschema

This script creates the Permit Application and Background Check RDBMS schemas.
6. From the Command Prompt, enter the following:
LoadBGData

Lab 2: Capturing Metadata


Time estimate: 20 minutes
Before we can implement our data integration interfaces, it is essential to capture the various
sources and targets into a unified data integration platform. This lab shows how ODI can be
used to capture the metadata information for the Permit Application and Background Check
database schemas and the Permit Request Flat File into a central metadata repository.

Configure Data Servers in the ODI Topology Manager


The ODI Topology Manager is what we use to manage the physical and logical architecture of
the data sources. Each data source is configured as a data server belonging to a specific
technology. In this workshop, we will use Oracle database tables and a flat-file as our data
sources, so we need to create the data servers for these specific technologies.
1. Start the Oracle Data Integrator Topology Manager. From the Start Menu, go to
Oracle > Oracle Data Integrator > Topology Manager
2. Login using User SUPERVISOR and Password SUNOPSIS.

3. To define technologies, click the Physical Architecture tab (the 1st tab) from the
Topology Manager as shown:

Confidential

Page 22 of 79

Lets first capture the Permit Applications Oracle database that will be used as the target.
4. From the list of Technologies, right-click on the Oracle technology and select Insert
Data Server.
5. From the Data Server Definition Tab, enter the name PERMIT_APP. On the connection,
enter the username PERMIT_APP and password PERMIT_APP.

Confidential

Page 23 of 79

6. Click on the JDBC tab. For the Driver, click the browse button
and select the
Oracle JDBC Driver from the list. This should populate the text box with
oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver.
7. For the URL, enter jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:XE.
8. Click OK.
9. In the Physical Schema dialog box, select PERMIT_APP for the Directory (Schema)
and PERMIT_APP_WORK for the Directory (Work Schema) as shown:

The Schema is where the actual tables are located, while the Work Schema is where ODI
will create temporary objects such as staging and integration tables.

Confidential

Page 24 of 79

10. Click on the Context tab. Click the new context button and type in
PERMIT_APP_TARGET as the Logical Schema.

This defines the schema in the Logical Architecture.


11. Click on OK.
Next, lets do the same steps for the Oracle database that contains background check
information. This will be used as a source.
12. Repeat steps 4-11 for the Oracle schema BGCHECK.
Name:
Connection User:
Connection Password:
JDBC Driver:
JDBC URL

Important Note: The BGCHECK schema actually resides on the same database instance as
the PERMIT_APP. For this workshop, we are simulating that the BGCHECK is a totally
separate database server, which is why we are configuring it as a separate data server. In
real-life scenarios, if your database schemas belong to the same instance, the best practice is
to just use the same data server for these schemas.
Next, lets configure the Permit File source:
13. From the list of Technologies, right-click on the File and select Insert Data Server

Confidential

Page 25 of 79

14. From the Data Server Definition Tab, enter the name PERMIT_FILE.
15. Click on the JDBC tab. For the driver, click the
icon and select Sunopsis File JDBC
Driver. For the URL, enter jdbc:snps:dbfile, as shown below:

16. Click OK.


17. In the Physical Schema dialog box, type c:\MyFiles\CSV for both Directory (Schema)
and Directory (Work Schema) as shown:

Confidential

Page 26 of 79

18. Click on the Context tab. Click the new context button and type in PERMIT_SRC as the
Logical Schema.

19. Click OK.

Define Data Models in the ODI Designer


After we configure the data servers, we can now define data models in ODI Designer. The
ODI Designer is what we use to define data models and integration projects that use the data
models. Before we can create integration projects, we need to be able to capture metadata
information from sources and targets and use this for defining the data models. This is the
process called Reverse Engineering, which we perform through the ODI Designer.
1. Login to the ODI Designer. Start the Oracle Data Integrator Designer. From the Start
Menu, go to Oracle > Oracle Data Integrator > Designer.
2. Login using User SUPERVISOR and Password SUNOPSIS.

Reverse Engineer the Permit Application Database


Lets start with Reverse Engineering the Permit Application target.
1. To define models, click the Models tab (the 2nd tab) from Designer as shown:
2. Click the new Model icon.

3. Enter PERMIT_APP_MODEL for the model name. Select Oracle as the Technology
and PERMIT_APP_TARGET as the Logical Schema.

Confidential

Page 27 of 79

4. Click the Reverse tab and select the context called Global.
5. Click the Selective Reverse tab and check the check boxes for Selective Reverse and
Objects to Reverse. Youll see the APPLICANTS, PERMITS and PERMIT_TYPES
tables from the list. Click the Reverse button to start the Reverse-Engineering Process.

Confidential

Page 28 of 79

6. You should now see the APPLICANTS, PERMITS and PERMIT_TYPES under your
data models with their corresponding columns and constraints.

Confidential

Page 29 of 79

Reverse Engineer the Background Check Database


Next, lets reverse engineer the Background Check database.
1. Click the new Model icon.

2. Enter BGCHECK_MODEL for the model name. Select Oracle as the Technology and
BGCHECK_SRC as the Logical Schema.
3. Repeat the Reverse-Engineering process done earlier to capture the BGCHECK table.

Reverse Engineer the Permit Request Flat File


Lastly, lets reverse engineer the Permit Request Flat File. The Permit Request Flat File,
located in c:\MyFiles\CSV\PermitBatch.csv, is a comma-delimited file that contains around
10,000 permit requests.
1. Click the new Model icon.

2. Enter PERMIT_SRC_MODEL for the model name. Select File as the Technology and
PERMIT_SRC as the Logical Schema.

Confidential

Page 30 of 79

Note: If you do not see the PERMIT_SRC in the Logical Schema combo box (just see
FILE_GENERIC_SRC), check the Topology again that you put the PERMIT_SRC in the File
technology
3. Click the Reverse tab and select the context called Global.
4. Click OK. (For Files, we do not perform Selective Reverse since each file is reverseengineered individually.)
5. From the Models window, right-click on PERMIT_SRC_MODEL and select Insert
Data Store.

Confidential

Page 31 of 79

6. Enter PERMIT_CSV for the name and click the Browse icon to locate the
permit_batch.csv file.

Lab 3: Simple Data Integration


Time estimate: 30 minutes
Now that the Permit Application, Background Check database and Permit Request File data
models have been defined, we can use them as sources or targets in our interfaces. For this
lab, we will create a simple data integration interface that reads applicant data from the Permit
Request file, performs basic transformation, and then stores it in the Permit Applications
applicant table.

Create an Integration Project in the ODI Designer


As mentioned earlier, the ODI Designer is what we use to define data models and integration
projects that use the data models. Now that data models are defined, we can proceed in using
the data models for interfaces in data integration projects. Lets start by creating a new
Project for this workshop.
1. Login to the ODI Designer.
2. To create a project, click the Projects tab (the 1st tab) from Designer as shown:

3. Click the new Project icon.

4. Enter Integration Project 1 for the project name.

Confidential

Page 34 of 79

5. You will now see an Integration Project 1 project in your project list. Click the + sign
on the left to expand and you will see a default folder called First Folder. Double-Click
the First Folder and rename this to Permit Integration as shown:

Import the Knowledge Modules


We will now import the knowledge modules that will be used for loading the Permit File
Source to the Permit Application.
Knowledge Modules are customizable integration strategy templates that can be
re-used to perform a specific set of tasks against a specific technology or set of
technologies. ODI comes out of the box with more than 100 Knowledge Modules
for the major database engines and application packages of the market.

We will use the following knowledge modules:


1. Loading Knowledge Module
2. Integration Knowledge Module
3. Check Knowledge Module

LKM File to SQL


IKM SQL Incremental Update
CKM Oracle

To import the knowledge module:


1. Expand the Knowledge Modules folder under Integration Project 1 and you will see the
various types of knowledge modules.
2. To Import the Loading Knowledge Module called IKM File to SQL, Right Click on the
Loading (LKM) folder and select Import Knowledge Module.

3. From the Import Knowledge Modules File Import Directory, enter or browse for the
following path:

Confidential

Page 35 of 79

c:\oracle\product\10.1.3.4\oracledi\impexp
(Replace with your ODI installation home directory if you used a different one.)
4. From the list of files(s) to import, select LKM File to SQL, as shown.

5. Repeat the same steps for the other knowledge modules listed above. You should see the
imported knowledge modules as shown:

Create the Interface to Load the Applicant Data


Now that the knowledge modules have been imported, we can use ODIs Declarative Design
framework in building the interface. With Declarative Design, you focus on what the rules
for your integration instead of the underlying technical aspect of the process. The imported
knowledge modules will take care of that for you.
Lets create the interface to load the applicant data from the Permit Data file:
1. Expand the Permit Integration folder, right-click on the Interfaces folder and select
Insert Interface.
2. For the Interface name, enter Load Applicant Data.

Confidential

Page 36 of 79

3. Click the Diagram tab.


4. You drag and drop data stores from models as sources and the target in this diagram. To
do this, select the Models tab in the left-navigation window (2nd tab from the bottom of
the left navigation window) to display the list of Data Models.

5. Drag the PERMIT_CSV data store from the PERMIT_SRC_MODEL and drop it on
the Source section.
6. Drag the APPLICANTS data store from the PERMIT_APP_MODEL and drop it on the
Target section.

Confidential

Page 37 of 79

7. You will be asked if you want to perform an automatic mapping. Select Yes.
8. The mapping is based on exact field names so all the fields except the APPLICANT_ID
will be automatically mapped.

(Note that you will see a warning for the Phone and SSN mappings, indicating that the
target column is smaller than the source column. This can be ignored.)
9. To manually map the APPLICANT_ID, click the empty mapping field of the
APPLICANT_ID column from the Target Data Store. This will bring up the
APPLICANT_IDs mapping implementation below (which is empty). Drag the Appl_Id
column from the PERMIT_CSV source node to the mapping implementation text area as
shown:

Define Basic Transformations


Now lets add some basic transformations. Well add a transformation to the first name and
last name so that the first letter is capitalized.
Confidential

Page 38 of 79

1. Click the mapping field of the APPLICANTS FIRST column from the Target Data
Store. This will bring up the mapping implementation below, which shows the
MAPPING as PER.First.
2. ODI is based on an E-L-T architecture that utilizes the database engines transformation
capabilities. For this transformation, we will use Oracles INITCAP function. To do this,
we need to specify to execute the transformation in the Staging Area rather than the
source. Select the option Execute on Staging Area below the mapping implementation.
3. Enter the mapping implementation as: INITCAP(PER.First) as shown below.
Optionally, you can click on the
icon on the right to launch the expression editor and
select the INITCAP function under the list of String functions.

4. Repeat the same transformation for the last name column (APPLICANTS.LAST).

Define a Filter
Now lets add a filter to get the permits with permit ID greater than 4008000.
1. From the sources window, drag the Permit_ID column outside the PERMIT_CSV node
to create a filter.
2. Click on the filter icon to show the filter implementation expression below and enter the
expression PER.Permit_ID > 4008000.

Confidential

Execute the Interface


Now were ready to fire off this interface.
1. Click on the Flow tab. The diagram shows you how the execution takes place.

Notice that only the source and target nodes are show. There is no separate
transformation engine. All the transformation and filtering is done at the target
database where the data is processed and loaded using a set-based operation rather
than processing it row-by-row in a separate engine. This approach yields much
higher performance and shows the benefits of the E-L-T Architecture.

2. Click on the source node and the target node to see the available options provided by the
knowledge modules.

Confidential

Page 40 of 79

Notice that all we had to for this interface was drag the source to the target and specify
the transformations and filters, which are all part of the integration rules. The
knowledge modules take care of all the underlying technical details such as creating the
staging and error tables, committing, cleaning up temporary objects, and performing
flow controls, among others. These are the benefits of Declarative Design.

3. Click on the Execute button below.


4. Click OK in the execution dialog box. You will be informed that the session has started.
Click OK again.

Monitor the Execution


The ODI Operator is what we use to monitor the execution of sessions.
1. Start the ODI Operator by clicking the Operator icon from top menu in Designer.

You can also use the Start Menu: Oracle > Oracle Data Integrator > Operator.
2. Drill down on All Executions and find the Load Application Data session. Click and
expand the second Load Application Data step. You will see the loading, integration and
control steps implemented by the knowledge modules executed by ODI.

Confidential

Page 41 of 79

3. On the left hand window, scroll to the right to view the various statistics for each step.
Youll see that 18000 rows have been staged and 10000 rows have been inserted into the
target table.

4. Double-click Step 7: Integration Load Applicant Data - Insert flow into I$ table.
This is the step that integrates the source data in the staging area.
5. Click on the Description tab and examine the SQL generated with the transformations
and filters that you defined.

Confidential

Lab 4: Heterogeneous Data Integration and Validation


Time estimate: 30 minutes
We will now create the interface that populates the PERMIT table. The data will still come
from the permit file, but this time, we will need to do a heterogeneous join between the file
and the background check database table to get the results of the background check for the
applicant. We will also apply data validation rules to the data models so that only valid data
is stored in the Permit Application. Invalid data will be captured in an error table.

Create the Interface to Load the Permit Data


Lets create the interface to load the permit data from the Permit Data file:
1. Start and login to the ODI Designer, if it is not already running.
2. Expand the Permit Integration folder, right-click on the Interfaces folder and select
Insert Interface.
3. For the Interface name, enter Load Permit Data.

4. Click the Diagram tab.


5. Now once again, well drag the models as sources and targets. Select the Models tab in
the left-navigation window (2nd tab from the bottom of the left navigation window) to
display the list of Data Models.

Confidential

Page 45 of 79

6. Drag the PERMIT_CSV data store from the PERMIT_SRC_MODEL and drop it on
the Source section.
7. Drag the PERMITS data store from the PERMIT_APP_MODEL and drop it on the
Target section.
8. You will be asked if you want to perform an automatic mapping. Select Yes.
9. Like earlier, manually map the Appl_Id column from the PERMIT_CSV source to the
APPLICANT_ID target column.
10. Add the TO_DATE conversion function to the PER.Application_Date and
PER.Request_Date target columns to convert the string data into a date.
Make sure you specify to execute this transformation in the Staging Area.

11. For the LOAD_DATE column, use the Oracle SYSDATE function to record the current
date.

Confidential

Page 46 of 79

12. Like earlier, create a filter for Permit_ID using the expression PER.Permit_ID >
4008000.
13. You should now have something like:

Integrate Heterogeneous Sources


Now we need to get the background check data from another relational system to join to the
Permit File using the Social Security Number.
1. Since we are now using a database as a source, we need to import the appropriate
knowledge module. Go to the Projects tab, expand the Knowledge Modules folder and
right-click on the Loading (LKM) folder to import the knowledge module called: LKM
SQL to Oracle.

2. Switch back to the models tab and drag the BGCHECK data store from the
BGCHECK_MODEL and drop it on the Source section.

Confidential

Page 47 of 79

3. Drag the SSN column from PERMIT_CSV to the SSN column in BGCHECK to create
the join.

4. Map the BGCHECKs RESULT column from the source to the PERMITs
BACKGROUND_CHECK column in the target.
5. Map the BGCHECKs REASON column from the source to the PERMITs
BACKGROUND_CHECK_MSG column in the target.
6. We need to only accept background check data only for the current year. Create a filter
on the BGCHECKs DATE_CHECKED column using the expression:
BGCHECK.DATE_CHECKED > TO_DATE('01-JAN-07')

We also need to lookup the correct permit type codes from the Permit Applications
PERMIT_TYPES table because the permit data file only contains the permit type name. To
do this, we need to include the PERMIT_TYPES table as a source.

Confidential

Page 48 of 79

7. Drag the PERMIT_TYPES data store from the PERMIT_APP_MODEL and drop it on
the Source section.
8. You will be asked if you want to perform an automatic mapping. Select Yes. This will
automatically create the mapping for the PERMIT_TYPE_CODE.
9. Drag the Permit_Type column from PERMIT_CSV to the PERMIT_TYPE_NAME
column in PERMIT_TYPES to create the join.
10. You should now have the following:

Note:
- Because Technology File does not support all functions like RDBMS, make sure that
you set the Execute on for the following fields on Staging Area instead of
Source: APPLICATION_DATE; REQUEST_DATE; APPLICANT_ID; LOAD_DATE
- Make sure that you have used TO_DATE for APPLICATION_DATE, REQUEST_DATE
- You should use: PERMIT_ID = TO_CHAR(PER.Permit_ID) if you receive an mis-datatype
error
11. Click on the Flow tab and observe how and where the transformations and merges take
place:

Notice that the joins are done in the staging area. The sources get staged first and
then joined in the staging area for best performance.

Confidential

Page 49 of 79

Notice that PERMIT_TYPES, although we brought it in as a source, is not staged like


the other sources. ODI detects that PERMIT_TYPES belongs to the same data server
as the PERMITS target and therefore it integrates this directly in the staging area.

Notice that the filter for BGCHECK occurs on the source since BGCHECK is a
relational source that can perform filtering logic. It will be more optimal to perform
filtering on the source when possible to minimize the data coming in. Since the
PERMIT_CSV is a file, it does not have an engine to perform filtering and so it
utilizes the staging area for applying the filters.

12. Click Apply to save the interface.

Create Data Validation Rules


Before we execute, lets add some validation rules on the Permit data model. These rules will
be enforced during execution time. Data that do not meet the rules will be rejected and
captured in an error table, where it can then be corrected and reprocessed.
1. Go to the Models tab and drill down on PERMITS and view its Constraints. There are 2
constraints there, the primary key and the foreign key to the APPLICANTS table. These
were captured during the reverse-engineering process.

We will now add 2 additional constraints that will contain our validation rules. Lets create a
rule for making sure that each permit application has a valid reason.

Confidential

Page 50 of 79

2. Right-click the Constraints folder and select Insert Condition.


3. Enter the following information:

Name:
Type:
Where:

Message:

PERMITS.REQUEST_REASON IS NOT NULL
Optionally, use the Expression Editor
to build the expression.
Hint: Use the Test Query icon
to validate your expression.
There has to be a reason

Note you can also create "NOT NULL" rules at the column level by checking the
"mandatory" check box. The advantage of utilizing conditions as shown above is that error
messages can be customized.
4. Click Ok.
Now lets create a rule to make sure only valid and completed background check results are
accepted.
5. Right-click the Constraints folder and select Insert Condition.
6. Enter the following information:

Lab 5: Change Data Capture


Time estimate: 30 minutes
ODI provides a Change Data Capture (CDC) framework to be able to identify and capture
changed data from the sources (inserted, updated, or deleted data) and use these changes in
integration processes. Changed Data Capture is performed by enabling journalization on data
models. Journalizing a model consists of setting up the infrastructure to capture the changes
(inserts, updates and deletes) made to the records of this model's data stores. Behind the
scenes, the CDC framework utilizes database triggers or log mining capabilities of the
database. These are implemented by the Journalization Knowledge Modules.
For this workshop, we will enable journalization on the RDBMS source, which is the
BGCHECK database table. This will enable us to only new or updated background check
information.

Import the Journalization Knowledge Module


1. Start and login to the ODI Designer, if it is not already running.
2. Go to the Projects tab, expand the Knowledge Modules folder and right-click on the
Journalization (JKM) folder to import the knowledge module called: JKM Oracle
Simple.

Enable Journalization
To enable journalization on the BGCHECK data store, perform the following steps:
1. Go to the Models tab and double-Click the BGCHECK_MODEL and click on the
Journalization tab.
2. For the Journalizing JKM, select JKM Oracle Simple.Integration Project 1

performed by the Journalizing Knowledge Module (JKM).

Using Journalized Data in an Interface


1. Open the Load Permit Data Interface that you create earlier and click the Diagram tab.
2. You can preview the source data that will be loaded by right clicking on the BGCHECK
source node and selecting Data.

Confidential

Page 58 of 79

3. Notice the BGCHECK table contains several rows that have already been processed
earlier. This is because the interface is not set up to use the journalized data.
4. To use the journalized data in the interface, click on the BGCHECK source node header.
From the source configuration below the diagram, mark the Journalized Data only
option as shown below.

5. Notice that a new filter has been created on the BGCHECK source. Click the filter icon to
see the filter expression.
6. Try right clicking on the BGCHECK source node again and select Data. There are no
new rows to process.
7. Lets try adding some new rows. Start a command prompt and enter the following
command:
sqlplus BGDEMO/BGDEMO
8. At the SQL Prompt, enter the following:

10. Go back to Load Permit Data interface in ODI Designer and view the BGCHECK source
data again. This time you will see 10 new rows waiting to be processed.
11. Execute the interface and verify through the ODI Operator that only10 new rows have
been added and not the entire data set.

Lab 6: Orchestrate Interfaces into Packages


Time estimate: 30 minutes
Now, let's put together these 2 interfaces in a data integration package. A package is a
sequence of steps organized in an execution diagram. The steps can be interface executions,
variable assignments, procedure calls, file operations, web service calls, OS commands,
notifications and many other utilities. Packages can then be compiled as scenarios, which can
be invoked by external applications such as web service clients.

Create the Permit Integration Package


1. Go to ODI Designer and click on the Projects tab.
2. Expand the Permit Integration folder, right-click on the Packages folder and select
Insert Package.
3. For the Package name, enter Run Permit Integration.

4. Click the Diagram tab. You can drag and drop interfaces that you want to orchestrate as
part of the package in this diagram.
5. Drag the Load Applicant Data interface into the diagram.
6. Drag the Load Permit Data interface into the diagram.
7. Click the OK connector icon

on the package toolbar.

8. Drag the mouse from the Load Applicant Data step to the Load Permit Data step to
create the connection between the 2. This will make Load Permit Data run after Load
Applicant Data completes successfully.
