Extractions are the main entities in Xtract Universal. An extraction is a combination of a source (SAP system), destination (e.g., SQL server) and a defined extraction type (e.g., Xtract Table).
Using Xtract Universal contains two main phases:
- Design phase
- Execution phase
During the execution phase the user can execute the extractions designed in the design phase. Depending on the target environment an execution can be triggered either by the XU command line tool - xu.exe or xu.elf by the data consumer. See also Pull and Push Destinations.
