Maps and map source files

The tasks involved in creating and managing map files include:

A map defines how to generate a data object of a certain type or multiple independent data objects, each of a certain type. A map contains input and output cards that transform data content from source formats to destination formats according to rules contained in the map.

A map source file stores related maps and functional maps in source format.

The Integration Platform Navigator view lists the folder and file name of one or more map source files.

You must build (compile) a map source file before you can execute it.
