MapRuntime setting

The MapRuntime setting determines the runtime platform of an executable map. The default value is Transformation Extender. The alternate option, DataPower, pertains to a WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance.

To design and create DataPower maps in the Map Designer, which is during the pre-production phase, use the DataPower runtime option to build and test them. After you have successfully tested the maps, you can deploy the maps to a DataPower appliance during the production phase. Maps that are built specifically for a DataPower appliance do not support all of the features of the HCL Transformation Extender. The limitations on the appliance are described in the Limitations of DataPower SOA appliances topic. The DataPower run time requires a compiled map (.dpa) and the input files for the map to run.
