This appendix covered the basics concepts for working with repositories. Besides the topics covered here, working with repositories is pretty much the same as working with files.
Although the tutorials in this book were explained assuming that you work with files, all of them can be implemented under a repository-based configuration with minimal changes. For example, instead of saving a transformation in
c:\pdi_labs\hello.ktr, you could save it in a folder named
pdi_labs with the name
hello. Besides these tiny details, you shouldn't have any trouble in developing and testing the exercises.
