Topic: REST Web services: How to post parameters in JSON format ?
Posted: Monday, May 11, 2020 12:10:49 PM
Use XMLSpy to create and edit a JSON schema for your parameter structure.
Then, in MapForce, you can simply assign that JSON schema to the web service call component's request side and map the parameter contents into the component.
Topic: Newbie: Mapping XML to EDIFACT
Posted: Monday, May 4, 2020 10:25:07 AM
Usually such messages as "no content is available" are triggered by mapping from some XML element that doesn't have simple content (such as an element that can only contain child elements, or and element with empty content) to some target that expects simple content, e.g. a string.

So I recommend checking your source XML schema - maybe you auto-generated it from an XML instance file that had empty content in that field.

Look at the example mapping "Altova_Hierarchical_DB.mfd" that comes with MapForce. It shows how MapForce automatically fills the foreign key in related tables with the primary key from the parent table.

You can choose more than one message type in an EDI component (as long as both are from the same EDI standard collection). Then you can either combine both of your mappings to XML into one, or you can use this mapping to just detect the message type and output some info into an output file for a following step to run the intended mapping.

What is wrong?


If the wildcard matches more than one file, you are trying to create multiple workbooks and worksheets with the same name in the target file. Remove the connections to Workbook, Tabelle1, and Row Number.

Is there a way to map similar input files in one Output file.


Sure. Look at the example mappings MergeMultipleFiles.mfd and MergeMultipleFiles_List.mfd that come with MapForce - the first one uses a wildcard to select the input files, the second uses a file containing a list of file names.

If this does not answer your question, explain more about the structure and contents of your input files and how you want to combine them.

Use dynamic output file names and the group-into-blocks function. MapForce comes with many examples - have a look at SplitFile.mfd to see how it's done.

When you're in the Output window, use the "Save Output File" command in the "Output" menu.

You need to create the correct parent connection(s), or use string-join to concatenate all values. Unfortunately the right side of your screenshot is missing so I can't give you any more specific advice.
