With the help of these tutorials, you will be able to understand and use the basic data transformation capabilities of MapForce. You will be guided through the basics step by step. The tutorials gradually grow in complexity. Therefore, it is recommended to follow them sequentially. Basic knowledge of XML and XML Schema will be advantageous.
The data mapping design files illustrated or referenced in these tutorials are available in the following folder:
When you are in doubt about the possible effects of changing the original MapForce examples, create back-ups before changing them.
This tutorial shows how to use key MapForce mechanisms to map the nodes of a source file to the nodes of a target file. The tutorial goes on to explain how to convert an XML file defined by one XML schema to an XML file defined by a different XML schema.
This tutorial shows how to merge data from multiple source XML files to one target file.
In this tutorial, we create a simple mapping as in the first tutorial, then filter the data produced by this mapping and pass the filtered data to the second target file.
This tutorial shows how to read data from multiple XML instance files located in the same folder and write this data to multiple XML files generated on the fly.
