DataPipeline : Java Glossary
I have left this tombstone entry for historical interest.
NorthConcepts.com’s ETL (Extraction, Transformation & Loading) library provides Java applications with
functionality without depending on a DBMS (DataBase Management System).
Applications can read, write and convert data using the built-in formats (
CSV (Comma-Separated Value), MS Excel, JDBC (Java Data Base Connectivity),
etc.) or extend the framework to handle new formats.
Applications can also transform data by applying a series of built-in and
programmer-defined operations (sorting, filtering, lookups, etc.) to the stream.
