Altova MapForce 2020 Professional Edition

You can choose one of the following as data transformation language:

 

XSLT 1.0

XSLT 2.0

XQuery

C++

C#

Java

BUILT-IN (the default native transformation engine in MapForce)

 

To select a transformation language, do one of the following:

 

On the Output menu, click the name of the language you wish to use for transformation.

Click the name of the language in the Language Selection toolbar.

tb_language-selection

When you change the transformation language of the mapping, certain MapForce features may not be supported for that language. BUILT-IN supports most MapForce features compared to other languages. For more information, see Support Notes.

 

 

The BUILT-IN transformation language

When you select BUILT-IN ic-builtin as transformation language for your mapping, MapForce uses its native transformation engine to execute the data mapping. MapForce also uses this option implicitly, whenever you preview the output of a mapping where the selected transformation language is Java, C#, or C++.

 

The BUILT-IN engine executes mappings without the need for any external processors, and it may be a good choice if memory usage is a concern. If you don't need to generate program code in a specific language, use BUILT-IN as default option, because it supports most MapForce features compared to other languages, as outlined in Support Notes. Furthermore, selecting BUILT-IN as transformation language has the advantage that the mapping qualifies for execution with MapForce Server, see Automating Mappings and MapForce.
