In addition to creating standalone mappings, you can also create mapping projects that include multiple mappings. Mappings added to a project are easily accessible from the Project window.
Project window (MapForce Enterprise Edition)
The main advantage of projects is that you can define common code generation settings (such as the target language and the output directory) for all the mapping files included in that particular project. You can also create folders inside projects, and specify custom code generation settings for each individual folder in a project. For more information about the MapForce-generated program code (in C++, C#, and Java), see Code Generator.
In MapForce Enterprise edition, you can additionally create Web Service projects. Such projects enable you to generate Java or C# program code that implements SOAP Web services, based on existing Web Services Description Language (WSDL) files. For further information about Web Service projects, see Implementing Web Services.
