Generating WebSphere DataPower maps

About this task

Before building a DataPower map, the MapRuntime setting must be set to DataPower.

To set the map runtime setting:


  1. In the Outline view or Composition view, select the map and do one of the following choices:
    • On the Map menu, click Map Settings.
    • On the toolbar, click the Map Settings icon.
    • Right-click the map and on the menu, click Map Settings.
  2. In the Map Settings window, locate the MapRuntime setting.
  3. Display the list, and select DataPower.
  4. Click OK.

    In the Outline view or Composition view, a DataPower map is represented by a distinct icon.

What to do next

The next step is to build the map. After a successful build, you can run the map. When you run a DataPower map, the compiled map, and input files are sent to the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance for processing. The results are returned to the Map Designer.

This is a preproduction phase. When your maps are ready for production, there are additional tasks to complete using the WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance user interface. For information about running maps in a production environment, see the DataPower documentation.
