Configuring your project to create WebSphere DataPower maps by default

You can configure your project to create DataPower maps by default.

About this task

If most of the maps you create are to be deployed to a WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance, before you begin creating your DataPower maps, you can change the Default Map Runtime setting on your project to DataPower. All new maps that you create are DataPower maps by default. This setting makes all Map Designer functions that IBM DataPower SOA Appliances support available to you as you design your DataPower maps.

To configure the Default Map Runtime setting:


  1. In the Map Designer, select the project in the Extender Navigator view, and click Project > Properties > Transformation Extender.
  2. In the Default Map Runtime pane, select the DataPower check box.
  3. Click OK to save the change.


When you create a map, DataPower is the value set in the MapRuntime setting by default. You can view this value in the MapRuntime setting in the Map Settings window.
