fferpcore.Context

global abstract class Context

This class represents a context for creating new Sources which in turn can be used to create new Nodes. A fferpcore.Context may represent an SObjectType, currently the only type of context supported.
Contexts are descriptive, used at design time. At runtime they correspond to DataSource.Row, and describe the fferpcore.DataSource.Row that the Sources they create will operate on.

Enums

SourceType

Value Description
FROM_CONTEXT Source of the data is a field on the current context.
LITERAL Source is a static value that is defined by the publication.
PASSTHROUGH A Source designed to pass through the input context.
CORRELATION Source of the data is a field, unless null, in which case it uses a fallback field.
COMPOSITE Source of the data is the result of multiple sources chained together.
FALLBACK Source of the data is the result of the first source provided that has a value.
