When mapping to or from databases, you can define settings such as the time-out period for executing database statements, whether MapForce should use database transactions, or whether it should strip the database schema name from table names when generating code. All editions of MapForce are available as a bit application. It is important that you altovaa each concept before moving on to the next one, as the tutorials gradually grow in complexity. These are known as “pass-through”, or “chained” mappings, and enable you to access your data at an intermediary stage in the transformation process in order to save it to a file, for example.

In fact, MapForce generates for you the program code which performs the actual data transformation or data mapping. More specifically, you will learn how to generate, in the same mapping, an XML file that stores mapforec list of book records, and another XML file that contains only a subset of the books in the first file, filtered by a specific publication year. Direct conversion of data from a source to altovx target is not typically the only thing you want to achieve.

Detailed tutorials walk you step-by-step through common MissionKit tasks, and you can test what you’ve learned using the interactive quizzes for each module. Maapforce, you can merge data from multiple XML files, and write some of the altovw to one database, and some of the data to another database. You can also call and get data from a WSDL 1.

You will also learn how to change the name and instance files of each mapping component, and the concept of “duplicate inputs”. When you prefer tutogial to generate program code, you can just run the transformation using the MapForce built-in transformation language available in the MapForce Professional or Enterprise Editions.

Importantly, you can generate program mapforfe from entire projects, in addition to generating code for individual mappings within the project. MapForce Professional and Enterprise edition can be installed as a plug-in of Visual Studio mapforcr Eclipse integrated development environments. This tutorial shows you how to work with more complex mappings that produce two or more target outputs.

In many cases, you might want to process your data in a particular way for example, sort, group or filter it before it reaches the destination. You can run data transformations either directly in MapForce, or deploy them to a different machine and even operating system for command-line or automated execution. HL7 Training This HL7 MapForce course will help you begin your HL7 integration and mapping projects with step-by-step tutorials, evaluation exercises, and a chance to work with real HL7 files and functions.

For advanced data integration scenarios, you can also extend the generated program with your own code, using Altova libraries and the MapForce API. Process and Generate Files Dynamically This tutorial shows you how to read data from multiple XML instance files located in the same folder and write it to multiple XML files generated on the fly.

You can preview the result of all transformations, as well as the generated XSLT or XQuery code without leaving the graphical user interface. However, you can easily design MapForce scenarios such as “read data from the source X and write it to target Y, and then read data from the source Y mapvorce write it to the target Z”.

Data from legacy text files can be mapped and converted to other formats with MapForce FlexText.

Note that, as you design or preview mappings, MapForce validates the integrity of your schemas or transformations and displays any validation errors in a dedicated window, so that you can immediately review and address them. Based on the MapForce edition, you can choose the preferred language for your data transformation as follows.


Work with Multiple Target Schemas This tutorial shows you how to work with more complex mappings that produce two or more target outputs.

What Is MapForce?

You can preview the Altoba statements before committing them to the database. On the other hand, MapForce includes rich and extensible function libraries which can assist you with virtually any kind of data manipulation.

Importantly, in the same transformation, you can mix multiple sources and multiple targets, which can be of any type supported by your MapForce edition. Sample data transformation between two XML files. Map Multiple Sources to One Target.

Altovz tutorial shows you how to read data from multiple XML instance files located in the same folder and write it to multiple XML files generated on the fly. Work with Multiple Target Schemas.

The technologies supported as mapping sources or targets are as follows. In the same transformation, you can process dynamically multiple input files from a directory and generate multiple output files.

In a very simple scenario, a mapping design created with MapForce could be resumed as “read data from the source X and write it to target Y”. You will also learn about stripping the XML and schema declarations and using functions to concatenate strings and extract file extensions.

Mappings designed with MapForce enable you to conveniently convert and transform data from and to a variety of file-based and other formats. Likewise, when working with databases in MapForce Professional or Enterprise Editions, you can see any database column in the MapForce mapping area and map data to or from it by making visual connections.
