This processor identifies whether a date is a school holiday, a bank holiday or a weekend.
It takes as input a Date column and outputs 3 boolean columns : -
*school: whether this date is a school holiday or not. (FR) -
*bank: whether this date is a bank holiday or not.
*weekend: whether this date is a weekend
or not. (FR,US,IT,DE,ES,GB,PL,JP)
It’s worth noting that a Date in DSS corresponds to a point in time, just like a timestamp. Conversely, a holiday is always defined by a timezone-less tuple (year,month,day). Consequently, a timezone must be provided in order to convert this timezone-less representation into a Date.
Although the timezone can be specified explicitly, it may be more convenient to use the country’s default timezone.
