IMAExtensibleFileImport Interface

The IMAExtensibleFileImport interface is implemented by a connected data source extension to import data from a data source to the connector space.

The IMAExtensibleFileImport interface is derived from the System.Object class.

Public Methods

The IMAExtensibleFileImport interface has the following public method.

Method Description
GenerateImportFile(String, String, String, String, ConfigParameterCollection, Boolean, TypeDescriptionCollection, ref String)

Called on an import run to connect to the data source and generate a file that contains the data to import from a connected directory to the connector space.


If this method does not throw an exception, ILM 2007 FP1 uses the file-based management agent to import the data in the intermediate file to the connector space.

Although ILM 2007 FP1 will not call the method in this interface for connected data source extensions with an export-only step type, you still must implement this interface. An error occurs if this interface is not implemented. For an export only connected data source extension, you can implement this interface by having all the methods throw an EntryPointNotImplementedException exception.


Example: Connected Data Source Extension for File-Based Data Sources contains code example that implement this interface.
