FAQ: Are bitwise operators (such as left shift or right shift) available in PowerCenter?

Bitwise operators such as left shift or right shift  are not available in PowerCenter.

A feature request  (CR 178622) has been created to add bitwise functions in a future version of PowerCenter.


You can use a Java transformation with Java library functions to perform the operation on incoming data.


Simple Java Code can be used with the following Java Expressions:

y = x << 3; //Shift left
x = x ^ 1; //xor can be used to flip between 1 and 0
