CloverETL 4.7 brings Data Services that allow you to publish transformations to applications as APIs. With Data Services you can publish a transformation graph as a (REST) API endpoint. That means you can create smart data sources or data targets that process data on-the-fly and make either data, or business logic or a combination of both, available to applications on-demand.
We're introducing a new Data Service REST job, a data transformation that can be published as a REST API endpoint on CloverETL Server.
While transformations are traditionally executed by a scheduler or event trigger, Data Services jobs introduce user-defined API endpoints on CloverETL Server that applications can use to get data processed by underlying transformations on-demand.
Compatibility note—Launch Services: Data Services feature is planned to replace Launch Services in the long-term. However, Data Services are not (currently) compatible with Launch Services—we're implementing Data Services from the ground up. Launch Services will remain fully supported in version 4.7. However, we recommend users of Launch Services to become aware of Data Services. There's no rush now. We will announce the replacement plans in more detail well ahead, giving current Launch Services users plenty of time to plan and implement the switch.
Contact Us—If you're interested in learning more about Data Services and how it can support your current or planned use of Launch Services/REST API, please contact us through our dedicated Data Services contact form. Our engineers will be able to answer your questions and will be more than happy to show you the new feature and its potential.
