Altova MapForce 2006 Enterprise Edition is the premier data integration and Web services implementation tool. This award winning visual data mapper converts data on-the-fly and auto-generates data mapping code in multiple programming languages for royalty-free use in custom integration and Web services applications. It is the first and only product to let you choose between XSLT 1.0, XSLT 2.0, XQuery, Java, C++, or C# code generation all from the same mapping design. With the power to map any combination of XML, database, text, and/or EDI files, MapForce 2006 is the definitive tool for data conversion and Web-based application development. A new project window and project-wide code generation capability let you produce turnkey Web services by opening any WSDL file and implementing all functions through the same visual design paradigm used for data mapping. Simply open information source(s) and target(s), drop in data processing functions from the customizable libraries, and drag connecting lines between elements you wish to associate. MapForce 2006 automatically connects matching child elements. Popular function libraries come standard, and you can create and save your own data processing functions and add in XSLT functions. MapForce 2006 Enterprise Edition supports all major databases, including Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, IBM DB2, Sybase, and any ADO/ODBC database. Its new FlexText feature provides an extremely versatile graphical utility for parsing structured text files and incorporating legacy data in mapping designs. Once a mapping is defined, you can instantly view the output. Mappings to target XML Schemas produce XML documents, while mappings to databases produce SQL scripts, mappings to flat files produce text file output, and mappings to EDI files produce EDIFACT or X12 transaction sets. Altova MapForce 2006 Enterprise Edition is an indispensable tool for anyone facing data integration and Web services implementation challenges.
