A Cast in DIALRun™ , is basically a profile you are creating for a scheduled job. In a basic setup, a cast will have one or many Data Source/s (a Choose Set), can have Condition bases on which data will be collected (a Mark) from the data source and one Destination (Populate set), where the data will be sent to or outputted.
Creating a Modal in DIALRun™ using “Direct Query” type is very useful when your requirement is to transport or export data from multiple tables. To create a modal using this type, simply give a name for the modal and write your query in the query editor and hit “Create Modal”.
In a relational database, data is stored in tables. Each table is comprised of a number of columns. In DIALRun™, these tables are called as Modals and the columns are referred as "Tags".

XML plays a key role in today's data transport since XML can be customized to represent proprietary business processes and to accommodate business data. In many instances when a business wants to publish XML structure and data, it's required to provide some kind of Schema definitions that identifies and explains the purpose of each "Tags" within the XML and to how the XML can be parsed in order to use the information required from the XML.
