Altova XMLSpy 2024 Enterprise Edition

The following statements are evaluated while parsing the SPL template file. They are not affected by flow control statements like conditions, loops or subroutines, and are always evaluated exactly once.


These keywords, like all keywords in SPL, are not case sensitive.


Remember that all of these declarations must be inside a block delimited by square brackets.


map ... to ...


map mapname key to value [, key to value ]...


This statement adds information to a map. See below for specific uses.


map schemanativetype schematype to typespec


The specified built-in XML Schema type will be mapped to the specified native type or class, using the specified formatter. This setting applies only to code generation for version 2007r3 and higher. Typespec is a native type or class name, followed by a comma, followed by the formatter class instance.




map schemanativetype "double" to "double,Altova::DoubleFormatter"


map type ... to ...


map type schematype to classname


The specified built-in XML Schema type will be mapped to the specified class. This setting applies only to code generation for version 2007 or lower.




map type "float" to "CSchemaFloat"


default ... is ...


default setting is value


This statement allows you to affect how class and member names are derived from the XML Schema. Note that the setting names are case sensitive.




default "InvalidCharReplacement" is "_"


Setting name
