What is DML?

DML is a language that tells the integration engine server how to generate a value from input data. It is similar to formulas that you can find in common spreadsheet software. With DML, you can handle all types of common data regardless of their technical encoding: you can combine numbers, dates, and texts to build almost anything you need.

This language has been designed as a very high-level language: your business generates data without having to understand the technical processes behind the generation events. This is why DML is not truly a complete programming language: it is not concerned with bits, bytes, and memory allocation. Although an experienced programmer can recognize some of the standard structures, techniques and vocabulary of programming languages, DML expressions are much more similar to mathematical formulas than real C or Java code.
