Generating mappings

You can verify if you can translate a mapping into Java code that is accepted by the Mapper Server.

  1. Double-click a mapping to open in the Mapper Editor.
  2. Right-click the Mapper Editor and select Generate.
  3. Select a server location where the mappings is deployed.
  4. Optionally, click Test connection to check the connectivity to the server machine. If there is an error, take note of the error details to correct later. Click OK to proceed.
  5. Click Finish.

    The mapping is automatically validated and saved to the server before it is generated.

    If there is a validation error, a confirmation dialog is displayed. Click Yes to continue saving the mapping. Click No to stop the operation. For example, if the mapping only has validation warnings and document checksum warnings, no confirmation dialog is displayed. You cannot disable this automatic validation. If there are validation errors or warnings, you can right-click in the mapping and select Validate to view the validation errors and warnings.

    Then, the mapping is saved to the server. The same dialog for confirmation of adding or overwriting the mapping in the Mapper Database is used as when saving the mapping to the server.

    See Saving to server.

    The mapping is generated on the server and you cannot generate a standard mapping.
