What is the difference between Router and Filter?


Following differences can be noted,
RouterFilter
Router transformation divides the incoming records into multiple groups based on some condition. Such groups can be mutually inclusive (Different groups may contain same record)Filter transformation restricts or blocks the incoming record set based on one given condition.
Router transformation itself does not block any record. If a certain record does not match any of the routing conditions, the record is routed to default groupFilter transformation does not have a default group. If one record does not match filter condition, the record is blocked
Router acts like CASE.. WHEN statement in SQL (Or Switch().. Case statement in C)Filter acts like WHERE condition is SQL.
