Source-driven connections

Source-driven (Mixed Content) mapping enables you to automatically map text and child nodes in the same sequence that they appear in the XML source file.


Mixed content text node content is supported/mapped.
The sequence of child nodes is dependent on the source XML instance file.


Mixed content mappings are shown with a dotted line.


Source-driven / mixed content mapping can also be applied to XML schema complexType items. Child nodes will then be mapped according to their sequence in the XML source file.


Source-driven / mixed content mapping supports:


Mappings from


As source components:
XML schema complexTypes (including mixed content, i.e. mixed=true)


As target components:
XML schema complexTypes (including mixed content),Note: CDATA sections are treated as text.
