|Description||A value writer is like a property-setter on a .NET class. It provides the implementation of the logic needed to write a value to an object.|
It is rare for the generic value writer to be used. In most cases, a specific type of value writer is used (for example, one that can set a property on an object). The configuration of any specific value writer depends on its type.
Data Exchange Framework comes with a set of standard value writers. In addition, each provider comes with a set of value writers designed specifically for the system the provider integrates.
The following are cases where custom value writers 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 writer.
