Configuring default input and output files

You can configure default input and output files to use each time you test-run XSLT and IBM Sterling B2B Integrator maps on the Standards Processing Engine. You can select default files from the Design Studio project or the file system, or generate the file names at run time. Without default file names, you must enter the name of the input and output file each time you run an XSLT or IBM Sterling B2B Integrator map on SPE.

Procedure

  1. Start Design Studio.
  2. Click Window > Preferences.
  3. In the navigation pane, expand Transformation Extender and click Standards Processing Engine.
  4. Click Use default input and output files for XSLT and Sterling B2B Integrator maps.
  5. Specify the default file name:
    • Generate the input and output file names at run time:
      In each Default file field, use the down-arrow to select a predefined name-pattern or click Custom to enter your own pattern. You can use the following variables in the file name:
      {map_dir}
      Substitutes the directory of the map that uses the file as a source or a target.
      {map_name}
      Substitutes the name of the map that uses the file as a source or a target.
    • Select an input or output file from the current project:

      Click Custom and browse to the folder in the project where the default file is. Use the filter field to show only the folders that match the filter text.

    • Select an input or output file from the local file system:

      Click Custom > Browse and enter the name in the File field, or browse to the file on the file system.
