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.

When to Extend

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.
