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 mspforce, for example:.

This tutorial shows you how to read data from two XML files with different schema and merge it into a single target XML file. You can also choose the encoding of the generated files for example, UTF Data from legacy text files can be mapped and converted to other formats with MapForce FlexText. Company News Partners Careers Legal.

You can preview the SQL statements before committing them to the database. Learn on your own schedule with interactive modules that contain guided instruction, video-enhanced tutorials, quizzes, and resources for further study.

In the same transformation, you can process dynamically multiple input files from a directory and generate multiple output files. 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 will also learn about MapForce sequences and items, creating mapping connections, using a tutorjal, validating and previewing a mapping, as well as saving the resulting output to the disk.

This allows for easier access and management.

Process and Generate Files Dynamically. The MapForce tutorials are intended to help you understand and use the basic data transformation capabilities of MapForce in a short amount of time. When your data mapping design files become too many, you can organize them into mapping projects available in MapForce Professional and Enterprise edition.


Sample data transformation between an XML file and a database.

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. The MapForce Professional and Enterprise editions are additionally available as a bit application.

turorial Additionally, you can visually build SQL queries, use stored procedures, or query a database directly support varies by database type, edition and driver. This feature also enables you to quickly test the output of functions or entire mappings that produce a simple string value.

Learn XSLT The training course starts thtorial an introductory tutorial for the novice user to the concepts of transforming XML data and the technology used throughout.

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.

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.

Documentation design can be customized for example, you can choose to include or exclude specific components from the documentation. 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 and write it to the target Z”. 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.

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. For advanced data integration scenarios, you can also extend the generated program with your own code, using Altova libraries and the MapForce API.


You will also learn about stripping the XML and schema declarations and using functions to concatenate strings and extract file extensions. You will also learn how to change the name and instance files of each mapping component, and the concept of “duplicate inputs”. 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.

Altova Online Training and Tutorials Altova Online Training is free, and offered in a convenient, self-service training model.

Importantly, you can generate program code from entire projects, in addition to generating code for individual mappings within the project. MapForce is a Windows-based, multi-purpose IDE integrated development environment that enables you to transform data from one format to another, or from one schema to another, by means of a visual, “drag-and-drop” -style graphical user interface that does not require writing any program code.

Direct conversion of data from a source to a target is not typically the only thing you want tutoril achieve.

More tutoial, you can design mappings on Windows, and run them on a Windows, Linux, or Mac server machine which runs MapForce Server either standalone or under FlowForce Server management. In fact, MapForce generates for you the program code which performs the actual data transformation or mapforcd mapping. Learn XML Schema 1. Work with Multiple Target Schemas. You can preview the result of all transformations, as well as the generated XSLT or XQuery code without leaving the graphical user interface.

Learn about the Mapping Tool

In MapForce, you design all mapping transformations visually. 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”. 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 tutirial programming languages.
