MapForce 2020

Graphical Data Mapping, Conversion, and Integration Tool

MapForce 2020

Altova MapForce 2020 is an award-winning any-to-any graphical data mapping, conversion, and integration tool that maps data between any combination of XML, database, EDI, XBRL, flat file, Excel, JSON, and/or Web service, then transforms data instantly or autogenerates royalty-free data integration code for the execution of recurrent conversions.

Visual Data Mapping

To use MapForce, simply open data sources and targets as mapping components, drop in data processing functions from the customisable libraries, and then drag connecting lines between the nodes you wish to associate. The built-in execution engine lets you view and save output in real time.

Mapping Output

When designing a mapping project, the built-in MapForce Engine allows you to perform data transformations on-the-fly and view the output with just one click. Executing data transformations with the MapForce Engine greatly simplifies the process of testing and perfecting complex mappings, saving time and increasing productivity.

Generate Code for Data Transformations

For XML and database mappings you can view and save the XSLT 1.0/2.0, XQuery or SQL execution code. Or, you can choose Java, C++, or C# to automatically generate a turnkey application from your design. This empowers you to implement data integration and Web services applications without writing any code. MapForce-generated code is royalty-free, so you may deploy it without additional fees or deployment adaptors.

Powerful, Flexible, Cost-Effective

MapForce offers unparalleled power and flexibility for advanced data mapping, conversion, and transformation, making it the ideal tool for global and intra-enterprise data integration projects. You can easily integrate data from multiple files or split data from one file into many, and MapForce supports chained transformations to empower complex mappings in which the output of one mapping becomes the input of another.


MapForce and MapForce Server

After a MapForce  mapping is designed and tested, it can be executed by MapForce Server to automate business processes that require repetitive data transformations.

MapForce pre-processes and optimises data mappings, stores them in MapForce Server Execution files for command-line execution by MapForce Server, and uploads them for use in FlowForce Server jobs.

MapForce Visual Data Mapping:

  • Drag and drop connection of source and target
  • Pop-up display of node datatypes
  • Automatically connect child elements where appropriate
  • Message window displays validation warnings or errors
  • Project helper window organises large projects with multiple files
  • Find function to locate nodes in large data mappings
  • Optionally integrate MapForce in Visual Studio or Eclipse

Graphical Mapping Interface

The MapForce interface is designed to facilitate graphical data integration with many different options for managing, visualising, manipulating, and executing individual mappings and complex mapping projects. The design pane (shown above)is the part of the MapForce interface where you graphically define your mapping components, add functions and filters for data manipulation, and drag connectors to transform between source and target formats.

The design pane includes many user-friendly features that help you to easily work with, identify, and redefine even the most complex mappings. For example, clicking an item name automatically selects it for connecting to another item. Useful pop-ups can be prompted by positioning your mouse over certain parts of the mapping connections where you can view additional information such as mapping target item(s) or datatype.

Connections are easily moved by clicking and dragging to the desired target, and duplicate connectors (from the same source to another target) can be created by dragging a connection while simply holding down the CTRL key. Activating the autoconnect child items icon allows you to automatically connect all child items of the same name under the parent item.

When you move a component in the mapping window, visual auto-alignment guidelines appear, allowing you to align the component to any other component.


MapForce Server

Altova MapForce Server is based on the built-in data transformation engine developed for MapForce and performs data transformations for any combination of XML, database, EDI, XBRL, flat file, Excel, JSON, and/or Web service using preprocessed and optimized data mappings stored in MapForce Server Execution files. Preprocessing enables faster performance and reduced memory footprint for most data mappings. MapForce Server operates under the management of FlowForce Server, in a standalone configuration executed from a command line, or programmatically via an API.

After a MapForce mapping is designed and tested, it can be executed on demand by MapForce Server to automate business processes that require repetitive data transformations.
