Work with Multiple Target Schemas This tutorial shows you how to work with more complex mappings that produce two or more mapforde outputs. More specifically, you will learn how to generate, in the same mapping, an Tjtorial file that stores a list of book records, and another XML file that contains only a subset of the books in the first file, filtered by a specific publication year. This allows for easier access mapforfe management. By clicking on any of the course titles above or to the left, clicking any other online training module link s or otherwise accessing or using any of the guided instructions, tutorials, or quizzes contained within the interactive modules the “AOT Content”you hereby agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Altova Online Training Terms.

Learn about the Mapping Tool

You will also learn how to change the name and instance files of each mapping component, and the concept of “duplicate inputs”. Work with Multiple Target Schemas. Importantly, you can generate program code from mapforcd projects, in addition to generating code for individual mappings within the project.

However, you can easily design MapForce mapflrce such as “read data from altovaa source X and write it to target Y, and then read data from the source Y and write it to the target Z”. Importantly, in the same transformation, you can mix multiple sources and multiple targets, which can be of any type supported by your MapForce edition.


When you prefer not to generate program code, you can just run the transformation using the MapForce built-in transformation language available in the MapForce Professional or Enterprise Editions.

Learn on your own schedule with interactive modules that contain guided instruction, video-enhanced tutorials, quizzes, and resources for further study. If you are using MapForce alongside other Altova Ttutorial products, MapForce integrates with them as well as with the Altova server-based products, as shown in the following table.

Detailed tutorials walk you step-by-step through common MissionKit tasks, and you tutorkal test what you’ve learned using the interactive quizzes for each module. Process and Generate Files Dynamically. Data from legacy text files can be mapped and converted to other formats with MapForce FlexText. Altova Online Training and Tutorials Altova Online Training is free, and offered in a convenient, self-service training model.

You can regard these tutorials as a “crash course” of MapForce. The technologies supported as mapping sources or targets are as follows. MapForce is a Windows-based, multi-purpose IDE integrated development environment that enables you to transform data from one format to another, or from one schema to another, by means of a visual, “drag-and-drop” -style graphical user interface that does not require writing any program code.

Note that, as you design or preview mappings, MapForce validates the integrity of your schemas or transformations and displays any validation errors in a dedicated window, so that you can immediately review and address them. For advanced data integration scenarios, you can also extend the generated program with your own code, using Altova libraries and the MapForce API. Learn XML Schema 1. The MapForce Professional and Enterprise editions are additionally available as a bit application.

The MapForce tutorials are intended to help you understand and use the basic data transformation capabilities of MapForce in a short amount of time. For example, in case of MapForce Professional or Enterprise, this makes it possible to merge data from two different databases into a single XML file. When your data mapping design files become too many, you can organize them into mapping projects available in MapForce Professional and Enterprise edition.


Documentation design can be customized for example, you can choose to include or exclude specific components from the documentation.

Map Multiple Sources to One Target. Detailed tutorials walk you step-by-step through each task, and you can test what you’ve learned using the interactive quizzes for each chapter. Mappings designed with Mapforec enable you to conveniently convert and transform data from and to a variety of file-based and other formats.

You will also learn about stripping the XML and schema declarations and using functions to concatenate strings and extract file extensions.

This feature also enables you to quickly test the output of functions or entire mappings that produce a simple string value. Likewise, when working with databases in MapForce Professional or Enterprise Editions, you can see any database column in the MapForce mapping area and map data to or from it by making visual connections. Mapforc Professional and Enterprise editions of MapForce also include components that enable you to perform run-time string parsing and serialization, similar to how this works in altovq other programming languages.

For advanced data processing needs such as when running mapping transformations with the MapForce Server APIyou can design a mapping so that you mapforde pass values to it at run-time, or get a simple string value from it at run-time.

You can also choose the encoding of the generated files for example, UTF
