How to Configure the Flat File Disassembler Pipeline Component

 

The Flat File Disassembler pipeline component is used for disassembling documents in flat file format and converting them into XML format.

To configure the properties for the Flat File Disassembler pipeline component

  1. Drag the Flat File Disassembler pipeline component into the Disassemble stage of a receive pipeline.

  2. In the Properties window, in the Pipeline Component Properties section, do the following.

    Use thisTo do this
    Document schemaSelect a flat file document schema to use for parsing the message from flat file to XML format. The flat file document schema for parsing can be created in BizTalk Editor.

    Default value: None Note: You must specify a schema for this property, or a compile-time error will occur.
    Header schemaSelect a schema for the header part of the flat file message. The schema for the header part of the flat file message can be created in BizTalk Editor.

    Default value: None
    Preserve headerSet this property to True if you need to store the flat file message header on the message context. Preserving the header of the flat file message enables the header structure and content to flow with the message through BizTalk Server. The header can then be used when serializing the message back to flat file format in the Flat File Assembler pipeline component.

    When the preserved header is being serialized by the Flat File Assembler, the header document design-time property can lack the name of the header schema, because this information can be obtained dynamically at run time. This is accomplished by using the message type of the preserved header.

    Default value: False
    Trailer schemaSelect a schema for the trailer part of the flat file message. The schema for the trailer part of the flat file message can be created in BizTalk Editor.

    Default value: None
    Recoverable interchange processingWhen "false" - indicates that entire interchange is disassembled as a unit (if any contained message fails, entire interchange is suspended).

    When "true" - indicates that messages within interchange are extracted individually by disassembler with possibility of some propagating through messaging pathway and others being suspended.

    For more information on recoverable interchange processing, see Recoverable Interchange Processing.
    Validate document structureSet this property to True if you need to validate all the parts of the flat file message (header, body, and trailer) to make sure they conform to their schemas. This option reduces the performance of the Flat File Disassembler, so it is set to False by default.

    Default value: False
