Creating a Structured Schema
A schema describes the structure and record types in both source and target data. In some cases, a schema provides connector-specific metadata for data handling. A map uses schema to move source data to the target based on a structure (until the record field level).
A schema consists of:
Record Types
Record Type References
For information to create a structured schema, see Managing Schema.
Note:  When creating a map in a workspace that already has only XML-based artifacts and if v9 compatibility mode is not enabled, then DataConnect detects that the existing artifacts are v9 compatible but the Compatibility mode is not enabled. The Compatibility Mode Preference Confirmation window is displayed asking if you want to enable v9 compatibility mode for new artifacts. Else, the new map is created in JSON format.
