The Professional and Enterprise editions of MapForce also include components that enable you to perform run-time string parsing and serialization, similar to how this works in many other programming languages.
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”. Detailed tutorials walk you step-by-step through each task, and you can test what you’ve learned using the tutorixl quizzes for each chapter.
Learn about the Mapping Tool
Documentation design can be customized for example, you can choose to include or exclude specific components from the documentation. Company News Partners Careers Legal. When you prefer not 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.
Additionally, you can visually build SQL queries, use stored procedures, or query a database directly support varies by database type, edition and driver. The MapForce tutorials are intended to help you understand and use the basic data transformation capabilities of MapForce in a short amount of mapforve. Importantly, in the same transformation, you can mix multiple sources and multiple targets, which can be of any type supported by your MapForce edition.
Regardless of the technology you work with, MapForce determines automatically the structure of your data, or gives you the option to supply a schema for your data, or generate it automatically from a sample instance file. This way, you can design mappings and get access to MapForce tutirial without leaving your mapfprce development environment. Therefore, you can have scenarios such as “read data from multiple X files and write it to a single Y file”, or “read file X and generate multiple files Y”, and so on.
Learn XSLT The training course starts with an introductory tutorial for the novice user to the concepts of transforming XML data and the technology used throughout. Sample data transformation between two XML files. For example, if you have an XML instance file but no schema definition, MapForce can generate it for you, thus making the data inside the XML file available for mapping to other files or formats.
You can also call and get data from a WSDL 1.
In MapForce, you can completely customize not only the look and feel of the development environment graphical user interfacebut also various other settings pertaining to each technology and to each mapping component type, for example:.
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. 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.
Altova Online Training and Tutorials
If you are using MapForce alongside other Altova MissionKit products, MapForce integrates with them as well as with the Altova server-based products, as shown in the following table. This tutorial shows you how to work with more complex mappings that produce two or more target outputs. 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.
MapForce Professional and Enterprise edition can be installed as a plug-in of Visual Studio and Eclipse integrated development environments. Or, you can merge data from multiple XML files, and write some of the data to one database, and some of the data to another database.
MapForce Beginner, intermediate, and advanced level modules include step-by-step tutorials, evaluation exercises, and a chance to work with mapping files and functions that meet your needs. You can preview the result of all transformations, as well as the generated XSLT or XQuery code without leaving the graphical user interface. 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.
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.
The technologies supported as mapping sources or targets are as follows. Sample data transformation between an XML file and a database. Work with Multiple Target Schemas This tutorial shows you how to work with more complex mappings that produce two or more target outputs.
For example, in case of MapForce Professional or Enterprise, this makes it possible to merge data from two different databases into a single XML file. While the goal is not to illustrate completely all MapForce features, you will be guided through the MapForce basics step-by-step, so it is recommended that you follow the tutorials sequentially.
Process and Generate Files Dynamically. You can preview the SQL statements before committing them to the database.
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. Data from legacy text files can be mapped and converted to other formats with MapForce FlexText. In the same transformation, you can process dynamically multiple input files from a directory and generate multiple output files. By clicking on any of the course titles above or to the left, clicking any other online training module link s or otherwise accessing or using any of the guided instructions, tutorials, or quizzes contained within the interactive modules the “AOT Content”you hereby agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Altova Online Training Terms.
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. More specifically, you will learn how to generate, in the same mapping, an XML file that stores a 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.
