ETL Transform Component

TCom is the transfer component in the engine used in the ACOMS ETL process. It accepts data from the "extract" stage in any variety of formats (Which can be defined via plug-ins) and outputs the data in a standard xml format for the "loading" stage to use.

It also implements additional requirements like detailed error handling/reporting, scheduling, etc.

This was my first professional project and I learnt a lot while doing this. The technologies themselves were rather standard, since I had worked on them for my personal projects. But things like writing formal test cases (and actually executing them) are what I picked up from here.
