HOP-3262: Simplify the APIs of transforms

The interface ITransform and ITransformMeta are no longer generic. Only the BaseTransform and BaseTransformMeta implementation classes are generic.

The getTransform and getTransformData methods of the BaseTransformMeta class are replaced by methods that use the generic parameters. Attention to the order of the parameterized classes is important, add additional parameters at the end:: Transform<Meta, Data, …​> TransformMeta<Main, Data, …​>
