Virtualizer communicates with Information View OMAS and virtualization tool which is currently Gaian.

Virtualizer has three main functions:

  1. listen to Information View OMAS Out topic(specified by property information-view-out-topic) and retrieve InformationViewEvent event (json structure);
  2. create Business Logical View(business terms are used as column names) and Technical Logical View(source table column names are used as view column names), containing only the columns with business terms assigned
  3. create Business View json file and Technical View json file, notify Information View OMAS through publishing on Information View OMAS In topic (specified by property information-view-in-topic).
