Subject:Reversal of mapping Author:Chris Probert Date:24 Jan 2002 02:28 PM
I have not thought this one through too hard, so excuse me if it is a little fuzzy. I was wondering if anyone knew of any way to try and automate the process of producing the reverse of a defined transformation. i.e. I create a transform which changes XMLA -> XMLB and need to produce one that goes from XMLB -> XMLA. Is there any way to capture (even some) of the already defined relationships?
I realise that this could be tricky technically, but it just seems that for a complex mapping task, creating the reverse transformation is going to involve a large amount of duplicated effort.

only. But we are still open to this issue…
