MapForce is a data-integration and Web services implementation tool that converts data on the fly and auto-generates data-mapping code in multiple programming languages. Version 2006 includes support for building Web services and generating code to implement them server-side, as well as other features for working with complex flat files and integrating MapForce into custom applications. The latest version also includes a highly intuitive graphical design interface, in which you can map between operations in Web Services Description Language (WSDL) transactions by dragging connecting lines between data sources and WSDL operations. A new Web services implementation auto-generates required C# or Java code for implementing Web services on a server after mappings have been defined for transactions in a WSDL file. FlexText flat-file parsing provides a graphical utility for parsing structured text files and incorporating legacy data into mapping designs. Starts at $249.
