Running EDI Mappings

Mappings which contain EDI components are supported when the mapping is set to one of the following transformation language: BUILT-IN, C++, C#, Java. Once an EDI mapping has been designed in MapForce, it can be run in the following ways:

 

The result of the data transformation can be previewed directly in MapForce, by clicking the Output tab. The output generated by the mapping will be saved to the desired location with the desired name, depending on how you configured both MapForce and the target component.
The mapping can be run on a server machine (Windows, Linux, macOS) with MapForce Server, through an API call or at the command-line interface. This requires that the mapping be compiled as .mfx file and copied manually to the server machine, see Compiling Mappings to MapForce Server Execution Files.
The mapping can be deployed to a server machine (Windows, Linux, macOS) through HTTP (or HTTPS) and run there as a scheduled or on demand job, or as a Web service, see Deploying Mappings to FlowForce Server.
C++, C#, or Java program code can be generated from the mapping. The generated program performs the same result as if the mapping is previewed in MapForce; it can be run standalone or integrated into your existing code, see Code Generator.

 

To configure only the settings applicable to an EDI component (either source or target), right-click the component header, and select Properties from the context menu, see EDI Component Settings. For settings applicable to other component types, see Changing the Component Settings.

 

To configure the mapping settings for the entire mapping, right-click the mapping, and select Mapping Settings from the context menu, see Changing the Mapping Settings.

 

To access the code generation settings, go to Tools | Options, and then click the Generation tab.
