    Multi-Mapping can only be used in ccBPM. It is used to map abstract interfaces. Development is the same as Message Mappings

    n:1 Transformation

    Bundles multiple messages into one message, for example, individual purchase order items into one purchase order.

    1:n Transformation

    Splits a message into multiple messages, for example, a purchase order into the individual purchase order items.

    n:m Transformation

    Converts a message into another message, for example, a message that is defined by interface A is converted to message that is defined by interface B.

    Multi-Mappings reference multiple message structures:-

    a) All source message structures are combined into 1 source structure.

    b) All target message structures are combined into 1 target structure.

    Therefore, there is only one source structure mapped to one target.

    BPM involved:

    It is mapping multiple structures with 1 (n:1) or mapping a single structure with many (1:n)

    Both the cases could be handled using BPM. But 1:N can also be handled without BPM.

    Hi Vamsi,

    A multi-mapping is a mapping program that is not restricted to the transformation of one source message to one target message.

    mappings of below type can be called multi mapping:

    1. 1:N --> 1 source message and N target messages

    2. N:1 --> N source messages and 1 target messages

    3. M:N --> M number of source messages and N number of target messages

    chk out the details:
