I am referring to design patterns as they are used in software development. We are trying to put into practice a pattern (if one exists for code developed via the DMC) that we may use as we develop our ETL processes.
The below listed link on design patterns will give you a better understanding of what I mean by patterns.
Very interesting. Altho the DMC is not a programming language it does generate FOCUS code. One could argue that by using DMC to generate Data Flows you are enforcing specific patterns. That said I haven't heard of DataMigrator customers using this methodology.

My two cents on the matter: DMC provides a design pattern for the ETL process. The developer uses DMC's design pattern to create a Data Flow from pre-existing source and target data objects. Existing procedural objects can also be re-used in the Process Flow that wraps and modifies the Data Flow. DMC generates the underlying code based on the design. Every DMC design uses the same pattern - only the specific data and procedural objects change.
