The first time they extract and store all of the source data in a manner that makes any data accessible at any time in the rest of the process. Most of the traditional engines that are not two-pass provide means, such as variables, in which the mapper may store data for later processing. BizTalk maps work in exactly the opposite fashion.

The mapping rules for a BizTalk map are built not from the source but from the target: The BizTalk mapping engine traverses the target from beginning to end.

Mapping rules are constructed and executed as links are encountered on the output side. Data is extracted from the source when a link is encountered in the target. Data is pulled into the file structure based on the structure of the output schema. These are very high-level models of traditional and BizTalk mapping engines but suffice to show that the basic flow of the map differs between them.

This basic difference is the source of much frustration for mappers who are transitioning from other engines to BizTalk. Fortunately, one great thing about BizTalk mapping is that the code that forms the map is easily accessible and relatively easy to understand.

This chapter reviews in detail the HelloWorld map from the previous chapter.

We will pry the lid off that map and examine the code that is generated when the map is compiled. That would be exactly backward from what actually happens. The map graphically displayed is actually an XSLT Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformation style sheet built to write output into the specific format defined by the output schema. The rules in the XSL style sheet are processed in the sequence required to create the output nodes. They also are built and processed in the order that they are encountered in the schema definition of the target.

Doing so can help you spot potential problems in your map that may not be apparent in the map editor graphics. If you are not familiar with the XPATH query statement, you may find the code verbose and somewhat confusing—even more so if you are generating code based on an X12 schema. We will examine the code underlying the HelloWorld map in this chapter, and you will find that untangling the XPATH query is not as hard as it first appears.

Generating the Underlying Map You can generate the underlying code by executing the Validate Map function, found by rightclicking the map name in the Solution Explorer, as shown in Figure The Validate Map option When the generation of the underlying code is complete the Output window displays the pathname to the resulting XSL file, as shown in Figure Listing shows the map code for our final version of the HelloWorld map from the last chapter.

NNote Comments have been included in the code to help everyone understand what the code does. Comments are not generated in the XSL code when you compile the maps. These are created when BizTalk helps out a little by inferring some algorithms in the code on its own.

Compiler-Generated Links Because we have links in our map that connect source elements in a repeating group to target elements in a repeating group, BizTalk assumes that we want to loop through the data in the source. Notice that this looping rule is created even though we have not used a Looping functoid in the map.

Since these rules may alter the behavior of your map, you should become familiar with how and when the compiler generates them. You can view the links that represent these compiler-generated rules in your map editor, but you must manually activate them in the display. Opening the Error List window This opens the error window with which you will become very familiar once you begin testing maps.

Select the Warnings tab, as shown in Figure Look at Figure Compiler-generated links See the two dotted lines that have appeared? These represent the links that have been generated by the compiler based on the links that we created. NNote You can find out more details about hidden compiler links in Chapter Compiler-Generated Variables When you examine the code in Listing you find many unexpected variables. The compiler creates and uses internal variables for its own use, most often to contain the output of functoids.

Any time a logical operation produces output that must be consumed by another operation or placed into the target model, the compiler creates an internal variable in which the value can be stored temporarily.

The code for the HelloWorld map creates five internal variables right away. See Listing At first glance it appears that the variables are not created in order but are created in the sequence r. On closer inspection, though, you see that the sequence is driven by the output. Stop and think about how the map is created. The first thing that happens is that the mapper sees the need for a for-each loop as we saw in Listing There is no need for an internal variable for the Ldkja node since that is a direct link with no interim operation.

Now compare the order in which the compiler sees these nodes with the variable numbers: Why use internal variables like this? Practically speaking, using local variables is the easiest way of referring to the output of interim operations on the data. Think of a piece of data as an object. If you move the source object directly to the output object, you can do so without modifying the source object.

But if you are changing the object between the source and destination, you need some place to put the changed value. These internal variables are the best means for the compiler to do this. Also, a simple variable name is much easier to repeat in the code than it would be to have to put the fully qualified name each time the value is needed, as with r]n6r0 as opposed to qoan? Compiler-Generated Scripts Another of the hidden features of the code we generated for the HelloWorld map is the C scripting for the functoids.

You might expect to see the script that was manually added to the map in a Scripting functoid appear in the code, but the appearance of these additional scripts might be a surprise. NCaution The detailed scripts may not appear in the code for some functoids. Computer-generated links, computer-generated variables, and computer-generated scripts are three features of mapping that are not obvious when you look at the map in the map editor.

Digging into the HelloWorld Map Rules When we speak of rules, we refer to actions defined in the map that affect the movement of data from the source to the target. The simplest rule in a map is the basic rule created by dragging the link from a source element node to a target element node.

The underlying code is as straightforward as the line on the mapping grid. Look at Listing This simple rule is slightly different than you might have suspected. That is because both the source and the target nodes are optional. Although the mapping grid graphically indicates an unconditional link between the source node QoanLdkja and the target node Ldkja, the code generated by the compiler reveals a test to be conducted to see if the source node is present in the source file.

Only if the source node is present is the value placed into the output node.

If we make the source element mandatory rather than optional, the generated code is simplified to that presented in Listing However, in that case, the compiler will issue a warning to indicate that while the target node is mandatory the source node is optional.

This rule then actually states that the value to be placed in the target node Ldkja is the text that is found in the source node QoanLdkja. Throughout this book, we show code as it is generated by the compiler but refer to the data object by the node name only.

The Logical Existence functoid, for example, tests for the presence of the node, not the presence of the text.

The Logical String functoid tests for the presence of the text. Thus the node 8QoanLdkja: Such cases as this will be pointed out throughout this material. We will see the Logical String functoid mentioned in the preceding Caution in our next rule from our map. The code generated for this rule contains three separate operations. Listing shows the code excerpt from the map that pertains to this rule. NNote Code excerpts such as the one in Listing and other listings in this book are composite extracts.

This means that the lines of code may not occupy the same relative positions in the full map file as in the listing. In Listing , for example, we have pulled line 1 from early in the XSL and placed it with lines 2—7 to facilitate the discussion. Line 1 actually occurs much earlier in the XSL than lines 2—6. Line 2 evaluates variable r. If so, the code between lines 2 and 7 is executed. If not, lines 2 through 7 are not executed. Manipulating Strings Using a Concatenate Functoid Rule One of your most frequent activities in mapping will be manipulating string data.

In our HelloWorld map, you see two separate examples of string manipulation. The first is a simple string concatenation action where we concatenate three city, state, and ZIP strings into a single string. Here in Listing is the XSL code for this concatenation. Line 1 appears strange on first inspection. The second and fourth variables passed to the function look like this: This is because both the single and double quotation marks are reserved characters in XML files and have to be escaped when used.

Line 1 also contains a call to a library routine, triggered by the addition of the String Concatenate functoid. The C for that routine is shown in Listing Line 1 creates the variable r0 to hold the results of the Opnejc?

That result is created from the five inputs to the functoid: Note that we assumed that the source data would be present since we have placed no provisions to handle any situation where any or all of the three source nodes lacks data.

As you see, the underlying code for this rule is not complex. By spending time familiarizing yourself with how the BizTalk mapper constructs code, as we are doing here, and by learning the basics of XSLT, you can make this code even more efficient.

The second example of string manipulation in this map is covered next when we look at the custom script in our HelloWorld map. Manipulating Scripts with a Custom Script Rule As we discuss this rule from our HelloWorld map, we will touch on the subject of custom scripting in maps.

Custom scripting is covered in detail in the next chapter, so here, we will limit the discussion to the information necessary to understand the rule. In the preceding examples, you saw how C scripts are invoked from the XSLT code generated by the map when a functoid is added to the map.

Now, you will see what happens when a Scripting functoid is added to the map and filled with a script. When you place a Scripting functoid in the map and put your script into it, your script is built into the map XSL exactly as are scripts from the standard functoids.

In the HelloWorld map, our Scripting functoid contains code that generates the contents of the output node BqhhJ]ia. This is done by collecting values from three source nodes and creating a single output value based on business rules.

Listing contains the custom script. The script creates the variable napr]h and fills it with the value IEO? The input value ej? If the value is ,,. Next, the input value from H]opJ]ia is appended to the value in the napr]h variable. Finally, if the BenopJ]ia variable contains data, that data is appended to the napr]h variable along with a comma. We do not test for the presence of data in the Qoan? The content of the output value, napr]h, from the script is placed in the target node BqhhJ]ia.

Employing the Current Date Rule The next rule from the HelloWorld map that we will discuss obtains the current date from the system. As you might expect by now, this rule is done in two parts. The content of the variable is then assigned to the output node. The two lines of code, extracted from different locations in the XSL, are displayed in Listing The exposed code for the C function, qoan?

If you are passing this date to an output node that requires a different format, you have to reformat it yourself. Chapter 8 contains several examples of reformatting date and time fields as well as other aspects of handling dates and times. That this is so is not readily apparent, nor is the impact easily predictable.

Sequencing Links Sometimes, we get calls asking for help in resolving a mapping problem where the caller has carefully examined the map as it is depicted in the map editor, even to the point of opening functoids and validating that the values inside are correct.

But the cause of the problem is still not apparent. Quite often, we find that the cause is the order in which links are attached to their target. The target could be a functoid or a node in the output schema. The simple fact is that the order in which you attach links to an object can directly impact how the underlying code is generated. Perhaps the simplest example of this occurs with the Value Mapping functoid. Look at the example depicted in Figure Incorrect order of inputs to the Value Mapping functoid The Value Mapping functoid expects either pnqa or b]hoa as the first input, as would be provided from a Logical String functoid or one of the other Logical Group functoids.

If the first input is pnqa, the second input becomes the output of the Value Mapping functoid. If the first input is not pnqa, the Value Mapping functoid does not output anything. This is because the Value Mapping functoid interprets any value other than pnqa as the equivalent of b]hoa. Because of this, when you attach the links backward, the first input and second input are reversed. Whether or not a value is output in that case depends on the output of the Logical String functoid.

Some link reversals will not stop the process but will change the value of the data. The order in which you attach links to a String Concatenate functoid, for example, determines the order of the output string. To force two and only two output? Inputs to the Looping functoid NTip Right-click a link in the mapping grid, and type a name in the Label field of the Properties window. This will replace the path name with the Label when you open an input window.

This map outputs two? Listing shows the code that is generated for this map. Now, when the map is run, the accounting company record will be output first, and the shipping company will be output second. Considering the Impact of the Order of Target Links on Output What about changing the order of the link connections to the target nodes?

Changing the order of the link sequence to the target can also alter the sequence of the output. Unfortunately, when you connect multiple links to an output node, there is no place where you can look to see the order of the links, as you could in the last example. The only way you can check in this case is to inspect the code. Our example here writes each output node using simple inline XSLT scripts. The map for this example is shown in Figure A map for illustrating effect of reordering output links The top Scripting functoid contains an inline XSLT script that outputs a?

The top Scripting functoid is the first connection to the? That this is correct is obvious when we look at the code generated for the map, shown in Listing The Exception Makes the Rule: Processing Links Out of Order Earlier in this chapter, we stated that the mapping engine processes rules by traversing the target model top to bottom.

Also, we implied in early discussion that within a node, links are always processed in the order of connection. This would properly mean links to parent nodes are processed before links the child nodes of that parent. After all, the parent node must be output before the child nodes.

Well, there is a very important exception to the sequencing rule, and it is of most interest when you are using scripts, especially scripts that increment a counter. We can illustrate this by adding two scripts to the map from Figure , as shown in Figure The code in the scripts, shown in Listing , is very simple. The code in the top Scripting functoid contains a declaration of a counter variable and a statement to increment that counter.

The code in the second Scripting functoid retrieves and outputs the current value of the counter. On the second pass through the? Listing contains the actual output of this map. As you can see, the output is not what we expected. The sequence in which the links are processed is to first create the? This code fragment contains the for-each loop for the OdelPk company processing.

As you see, the first operation executed is to fill variable r- with the current contents of the counter, using the qoan? Only now, after both the links to both child nodes have been executed, is the link to the parent node? Thus, at the point that the counter is first output, the value has never been incremented so the output value is ,.

When the?

NNote This problem using the counter to illustrate that the links to child nodes are executed before links to the parent node was constructed to make the point.

There are many ways to solve the problem, some of which you will see later in this book. The Exception to the Exception: Executing Parent Node Links First Our last example clearly indicated that links to child nodes are executed before links to the parent node of those child nodes. Sometimes, we want to block the output of a node unless a certain condition is met. A map illustrating the exception to the exception We only want one instance of? The output of this map is shown in Listing But what if we only want to output the?

We add an Equal functoid to the map, as shown in Figure , and connect its output to the? The map illustrating the exception to the exception with the Equal functoid The Equal functoid compares the parameters shown in Figure IA and b]hoa if it is not. We connect the output of the Equal functoid to the target node? By the rules you saw in the example with the counter, though, we might expect the node to be built and the children to be output before the link from the Equal functoid is activated.

After all, the exception to the rule was that links to child nodes are executed before the links to the parent of those children.

As you can see, the? The code from this map is in Listing The value output from the Equal functoid is placed into variable r-.

The next operation is an eb statement that tests variable r- to see if it contains pnqa. If it does, the code within the eb statement is executed. If not, none of that code is executed.

The code in question is the creation of the target? This is the exact opposite of the mapping example shown in Figure As we discussed the XSL code, you saw several C scripts that were also produced when the map was compiled. You saw the code for the custom script that we added to the map in a Scripting functoid. Like with XSLT, you do not have to be an expert, but you must have a basic understanding of at least one scripting language.

For that reason, we will delve into the how, when, why, and which language questions next in Chapter 3. There is a good reason we did so. Even a very simple map like our HelloWorld map is easier to create by using custom scripts.

This chapter introduces some basic concepts and techniques of using custom scripts in maps. Choosing Between Scripts and Functoids When you should use a script rather than a functoid chain is not always driven by the complexity of the rule. Sometimes, the choice is a matter of preference.

Others resist putting any scripts in their maps, even to the point of using a series of maps to complete a transformation that could be accomplished in one map. Although we generally use functoids unless the functoid chain becomes too complex to unravel easily, there are good reasons to resort to scripting even when a couple of functoids will do the trick easily. This, as well as the reverse rule where you need to remove the punctuation, is a very common rule in EDI mapping.

You can easily implement this rule with standard functoids. As you can see in Figure , only four functoids are needed. Three string extraction functoids break the date into century and year, month, and day. A String Concatenate functoid then builds the new string. A functoid chain to reformat a date This functoid chain takes only a few minutes to build.

However, many maps have multiple instances of source dates that must be reformatted. This case presents an opportunity to use a custom script to reduce the amount of work needed to accomplish a rule. We keep a library of such scripts, so adding them to a map is a simple matter of copying the code and pasting it into a Scripting functoid. Each time we write a script, we save a copy of the code in a text or XML file.

When we want to reuse a script later in a different map, all we need to do is open the correct file, copy the script, and paste it into the new Scripting functoid. This example leads us to a question that we are often asked: When should scripting be used instead of functoids? Functoids Four primary factors have lots of traction with us when we decide whether or not to use a functoid or to use a script: You should always consider the likelihood that someone else will maintain your maps.

The more complex the logic in your map, the more difficulty others will have understanding what you did, and the harder it will be for them to modify the map. Make the map easy to understand. Once you move beyond simple functoid chains, untangling the logic of a complex functoid chain is time consuming.

By the same token, the simple concatenation of several strings requires only one functoid; using a script only complicates that action. Choose the method that reduces the development time. Write a script.

Until the time comes that you can copy a chain of functoids from one spot in your map and paste the copy somewhere else, consider using a script when a function must be repeated several times in the map.

Using the Rule of Six We sometimes refer to our simple method of deciding between scripts and functoids as our Rule of Six.

If you need six or less functoids, you should not use a script. Reusability overrode the rule in that case, thus the rule is really just a basis for quick decisions on when to use a script. We violate it all the time and so will you once you find your comfort level with BizTalk mapping.

The more experience you have, the more you will rely on the four guidelines and the less you will rely on this rule. In the original form, this rule used the script shown in Listing to concatenate the last and first name, separate them with a comma, and prefix the name with a literal string based on the Qoan? You can see the 11 functoids that are needed to accomplish the same function as the simple script in Listing Worse, the functoid chain in Figure is not complete, as it does not test to see if the QoanBenopJ]ia node is empty.

That must be done in order to suppress the inserted comma when there is no data in QoanBenopJ]ia. Too many functoids In order to include the QoanBenopJ]ia test, the value in QoanBenopJ]ia must be captured and tested in a separate functoid chain, stored in a global variable, and then pulled into this chain through a scripting functoid.

That would add at least two more functoids to the procedure, for a total of If you validate this map, you will see that the underlying code for just this one logical rule is actually larger than the entire map we created earlier.

The code for this map is shown in Listing The code generated by the map with the script is shown in Listing As you see, this simple map creates code that is difficult to follow.

This map reflected only three conditionals, represented by the Equal functoids, in the chain. Needing five or more conditionals is not unusual in EDI mapping. Imagine how complex the functoid chain would be in such cases. This map is a good example of when to apply our Rule of Six. Selecting from Available Scripting Languages Since maps are created in the.

NET environment, you may choose from a wide range of scripting languages. To see your choices, first drag a Scripting functoid onto the grid, right-click the functoid, and select Configure Functoid Script. The Configure Functoid Script window shown in Figure opens. Delete all seven lines, as typing your code into the buffer is easier than working with the sample.

You should always put in a comment that describes the purpose of the script. NTip You do not have to type your code into the buffer. You can type and edit it in any text editor, such as Notepad, and then copy and paste it into the buffer. NCaution When you first create a script, remember to give it a new name. As noted earlier, all scripts with the same name are treated as one by the compiler.

Thus if you create two different scripts but name both the same, when the map is generated the code from the second instance will not appear in the compiled map. It will still appear in the functoid, however, thereby misleading you when you try to debug the map. This is true of all scripts, not just C scripts. We add a second script to our map so that we have the scripts from Listing and Listing in our map.

Now look at Listing , which is generated when we validate the map containing these two scripts. The code from the second script, the one shown in Listing , was not compiled. When the map was executed, the output of the second Scripting functoid would not be what we expected. In C , for example, character positions are zero based. In String functoids, character positions are one based. Remove the sample code.

DateFormat Script in VB. The difference in the way the underlying code is created is minor, however, as you can see in Listing DateFormat Script in Visual Basic. In this example, we accept a date as the input parameter. XSLT call templates accept input via both methods.

Notice that the language of the call template, shown in Listing , is similar to code that is generated when a map compiled. NNote Simple XPATH queries are especially useful when creating outbound EDI segments like the NAB or PI segments, because you can collect data from source nodes that are not in the current context node of your source data and use this data to create repeating instances of a single output node. Not really. But our good practice rule says that if you will use the input data in more than one place, you should use a variable.

Your XSLT will then construct and use variables in the same way that a BizTalk map constructs and uses internal variables. We are a bit more creative in naming variables than BizTalk, though! First, when input parameters are used in an XSLT call template, the input values arrive through links from the source nodes to the Scripting functoid.

If the source data is in a loop, the value input to the Scripting functoid depends on how many times the loop has been accessed before the script is executed.

Second, when you need a system variable such as System Date as input, you may have to use a call template and not inline XSLT.

Releases of BizTalk that do not use Version 2. Using External Assemblies Although listed with the other script types in the drop-down in the Configure Functoid Window of the Scripting functoid, external assemblies are not a different type of script.

The External Assemblies selection provides a method for you to call. NET assemblies from a Scripting functoid. The five scripting languages we have just reviewed all can be used to create such a. NET assembly. One reason to put your script in a. This means that you can change the way all those maps work by modifying and replacing the assembly in the GAC. NCaution Since there may be multiple instances of a map running at the same time, the code used in an assembly called from a Scripting functoid must be thread safe.

The date conversion process we used for the other scripting examples can be used as an external assembly as well.

Since we are creating a library routine, we want to expand the functionality and make the script more universal in usage. Creating an external assembly to perform the date conversions is more complex than simply putting a script in a Scripting functoid.

Since you develop code for external assemblies in the Development Studio, you must create a class library project as shown in Figure Creating a Class Library project NNote Which language you use in your external assembly is a matter of your choice. We use C because we feel that C is the most commonly used language with BizTalk and because we are most familiar with it.

The window that will open will differ depending on several things, including the preferences that have been set for the tool. NET Framework 2. To do this, you must right-click the References folder shown in the Solutions window under your project and select Add Reference. Finally, you must add the function to your map by using a Scripting functoid.

You will then have a window similar to the one in Figure Adding the. The first parameter is a link from the source node containing the date to the Scripting functoid. The second and third parameters are added in the Configure Functoid Inputs window, as shown in Figure Configuring the inputs Notice that the link to the source node is the first parameter.

The second and third parameters, the formats for the source and target dates, must conform to the. NET date and time syntax requirements. You have to decide which language is best for your situation. There are many factors to consider in choosing the scripting language for your maps.

Only a few of those factors have anything to do with the inherent capabilities of one language versus another. If you are already familiar with one of the scripting languages, you should use that language for your scripts.

Many organizations have a standard development language. You must use the scripting language that is dictated by the standards for the organization. This allows you to take advantage of the powerful capabilities of XPATH queries, which are very helpful when you need to extract data from a variety of different source nodes to create common output records. The BizTalk mapper does not provide a method to control looping other than the Looping functoid, which is insufficient in many cases.

This is because the iterations of a loop are determined by the instances of data in the source node. Also, multiloop to single loop iterations are not supported. Sometimes, you need to force a greater or smaller number of loops than would be produced by the default mechanisms.

XSLT scripting provides the means to control looping in such instances. As discussed earlier, complex functoid chains should be replaced with scripts. Custom database access should be done in an external assembly.

You can use any language for this purpose. The one you should use will be driven by external factors, such as the type of database. Views Total views. Actions Shares. Embeds 0 No embeds.
