The Mapping Manifest - A Machine-Readable Specification

The specific manifests discussed here capture mappings from Cobol copybook names and positions to table columns. The purpose of these manifests is two-fold:
  1. As human-readable documents, they provide detail mapping and transformation specifications.
  2. As machine-readable documents, they assist in the development of correct and validated parsers that can process stage files and populate database tables.
The manifest is a plain text file. This document describes how it is structured and populated.
