Altova MapForce 2022 Enterprise Edition

Configuring Automatic Build and Generation of MapForce Code

Home Prev Top Next

Automatic MapForce code building and generation is enabled by default in any MapForce/Eclipse project (see Creating a MapForce/Eclipse Project ). If you want to enable automatic build and generation of MapForce code in an existing project which is not of type MapForce/Eclipse, you can do this by manually adding to it the MapForce Code Generation builder and the MapForce nature.

To add the MapForce Code Generation builder to a project:

Add to the Eclipse .project file the lines highlighted below:

 

<buildSpec>
    <buildCommand>
        <name>org.eclipse.jdt.core.javabuilder</name>
        <arguments>
        </arguments>
    </buildCommand>
     <buildCommand>
         <name>com.altova.mapforceeclipseplugin.MapForceBuilder</name>
         <arguments>
         </arguments>
      </buildCommand>
  </buildSpec>

To add the MapForce nature to a project:

Add to the Eclipse .project file the lines highlighted below:

 

  <natures>
    <nature>org.eclipse.jdt.core.javanature</nature>
     <nature>com.altova.mapforceeclipseplugin.MapForceNature</nature>      
  </natures>

 

Tip:You can quickly open the .project file from the Navigator view of Eclipse (To enable this view, select the menu command Window | Show View | Navigator).

To switch automatic MapForce code generation on/off:

On the Project menu, click Build automatically.

To disable the MapForce Code Generation builder:

1.On the Project menu, click Properties.

2.Click Builders.

mf_eclipse_disable_mf_builder

3.Click to clear the MapForce Code Generation check box.
