Altova MapForce 2020 Basic Edition

New in MapForce 2020 Release 2:

 

A new Manage Libraries window is available that enables you to view and manage all function libraries imported at document and at program level (this includes MapForce user-defined functions and other kinds of libraries). This makes it possible, for example, to easily copy-paste user-defined functions from one mapping to another, see Copy-Pasting UDFs Between Mappings.

When a mapping file imports libraries, the path of imported library files is relative to the mapping file by default, see Relative Library Paths. You can still import mappings at application level, like in previous releases, but in this case the library path is always absolute.

If a mapping file imports XSLT libraries, you can generate XSLT code that references the imported library files using a relative path. The new option is available in the Mapping Settings dialog box.

Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2020:

 

When replacing values with the help of a look-up table, you can paste tabular data (key-value pairs) from external sources such as CSV or Excel into the mapping. Also, it is easier to handle cases when a value is not found in the predefined look-up table—processing such values no longer requires the use of substitute-missing function. See Using Value-Maps.

Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2019 Release 3:

 


Major parts of the graphical user interface are now optimized for monitors with high pixel density (HiDPI)


Support for explicitly setting the Java Virtual Machine path from MapForce, see Java Settings


Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2019:

 


Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2018 Release 2:

 


Built-in functions, user-defined functions, and constants can be conveniently added to the mapping by double-clicking an empty area on the mapping (see Add a Built-in Function to the Mapping and Add a Constant to the Mapping)


Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2018:

 


Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2017 Release 3:

 


The text search options in the Output pane and the XSLT pane have been enhanced (see Searching in Text View). Also, text highlighting is available in the above-mentioned panes (see Text Highlighting).


Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2017:

 


It is possible to read node names from a source XML and map this information to a target. It is also possible to dynamically create new XML attributes or elements in a target based on values supplied from a source. See Mapping Node Names.


XML instance files can be created with custom namespaces, at element level (see Declaring Custom Namespaces)


Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New in MapForce 2016 R2:

 

More intuitive code folding in the XSLT pane: collapsed text is displayed with an ellipsis symbol and can be previewed as a tooltip.

You can search for all occurrences of a function within the active mapping (in the Libraries window, right-click the function, and select Find All Calls).

Internal updates and optimizations

 

 

New features in MapForce 2016:

 

Improved generation of XSLT 1.0 code (generated stylesheets are easier to read and often faster to execute)

Two new aggregate functions are available in the MapForce core library: min-string and max-string. These functions enable you to get the minimum or maximum value from a sequence of strings.
