In this chapter, you learned different options that PDI offers to combine or split flows of data. The chapter covered the following:

  • Copying and distributing rows
  • Splitting streams based on conditions
  • Merging independent streams in different ways

With the concepts you learned in the initial chapters, the range of tasks you are able to perform is already broad. In the next chapter, you will learn how to insert JavaScript code in your transformations not only as an alternative to perform some of those tasks, but also as a way to accomplish other tasks that are complicated or even unthinkable to carry out with regular PDI steps.
