Creating Specifications and Mapping Data

Microsoft® BizTalk™ Server 2002 provides tools with which you can define the structure of a document and map data from one format to another. These tools are based on Extensible Markup Language (XML) and related standards, such as Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) Transformation (XSLT), and they provide the essential data translation necessary for an application-integration server.

Using BizTalk Editor, you can create specifications that are based on industry standards and common schemas, or you can create specifications that are unique to your organization.

Using BizTalk Mapper, you can create a map between the records and fields of two different specifications. The server uses the map to process and translate data into formats that can be shared within your own organization or with your partner organizations.
