Prepare Mapping Design
The starting point of this tutorial is similar to the BooksToLibrary.mfd mapping from the first tutorial. The difference is, no XML files are supplied at this stage. Our goal in this step is to map one abstract structure (Books.xsd) to another abstract structure (Library.xsd). To reproduce the scenario illustrated in the screenshot below, take the following steps:
2.When MapForce suggests adding a sample XML file, click Skip.
4.When MapForce suggests adding a sample XML file, click Skip.
5.Connect the respective nodes, as shown in the screenshot below.
6.Locate the current-dateTime function in the Libraries window.
7.Drag the function to the mapping area and connect result with the last_updated element.
