Biml And Metadata

Ben Weissman provides an example of using metadata to drive conditional data loading:

Now that we’ve defined connections, databases and schemas we still need to add our table metadata.

We’re going to do that by looping across all our databases marked as a source in Biml, retrieving the list of required tables from SQL (located in View vMyBimlMeta_Tables) and creating a table tag for each table which will also reference back to the corresponding target system. That also allows us to use the same table names multiple times. Again, we’ll store some additional data in annotations.

This is an interesting concept.  Check it out.
