This blog will talk about "Graphical Data Mapping Editor" which was introduced in WebSphere Message Broker Version 8.0 (hereafter called IBM Integration Bus).It will help as a quick reference for creating new maps, customizing a message map to include headers and editing the property of Transform Elements.
Graphical Data Mapping Editor creates/edits graphical maps. It is used to develop message mapping for Mapping Node. The Graphical Data Map( .map ) represents input and output message data in graphical format.
Graphical Data Mapping Editor has the ability to:
- transform message from one format to another
- modify data in database
- route a message
- build a new message
Graphical Data Mapping supports the following Message Domain:
It does not support JSON message domain.
The following use case illustrates how maps are created:
- To create a new map, please execute any of the steps:
- Double click the mapping node
- Right click the Mapping Node -->Open Map
- Click New --> Message Map on the Integration Development perspective
- Specify if the Message Map is called by flow node or by another Map
- Select Source Tree and Target Tree
- The final step is to select domain, which completes the creation of a new map
The new created map can be edited with the Mapping Editor .
