|Description||A value reader is like a property-getter on a .NET class. It provides the implementation of the logic needed to read a value from an object.|
It is rare for the generic value reader to be used. In most cases, a specific type of value reader is used (for example, one that can get a property on an object). The configuration of any specific value reader depends on its type.
Data Exchange Framework comes with a set of standard value readers. In addition, each provider comes with a set of value readers designed specifically for the system the provider integrates.
The following are cases where custom value readers may be needed:
- A developer building a custom provider that involves working with a 3rd party API.
- Simplifying configuration by encapsulating complex logic in a single value reader.
