Project settings for DataPower maps

You can configure settings for your project for DataPower maps.

There are two project settings that you can configure:

  • Default Map Runtime
  • Update Map Runtime

You configure the project settings in the Map Designer under Project > Properties > Transformation Extender. These project settings are used to set and update the MapRuntime setting to indicate the map runtime environment in source map (.mms) files.

Use the Default Map Runtime setting with the DataPower check box selected to create DataPower maps by default. This selection sets the MapRuntime setting to DataPower in source map (.mms) files that you create. If you clear the DataPower check box, it sets the MapRuntime setting to Transformation Extender in source map (.mms) files that you create. You might want to use this setting when most of the maps you create are to be deployed to a WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance.

Use the Update Map Runtime setting to update the MapRuntime setting with a value that you select in the MapRuntime list, in all of the executable maps in all of the map source (.mms) files in the project. Select one of the values in the MapRuntime list: DataPower or Transformation Extender. Click Update and toggle between updating the MapRuntime setting to the selected value in all of the executable maps in all of the map source (.mms) files in the project. You might want to use this project setting when you need to compile all executable maps for IBM DataPower SOA Appliances, or environments other than IBM DataPower SOA Appliances, with one set of source maps.
