Where does the name space prefix come from

When I test my mapping in the Integration Builder both my mapping type and my name space get prefixed with nsX (ie ns1, ns2, etc). How can I tell in advance was the X value will be?

Thanks

Patrick

    Hi Patrick,

    there is no possibility.

    According to the XML namespace declaration the prefixes are just internal aliases with no external meaning.

    E.g. http://www.sap.com" /> and

    http://www.sap.com" /> are totally equivalent according to the XML namespace specification.

    Therefore, everyone (human or machine) who produces a program can choose the prefixes as he wants. Moreover, he may change the rules for creating these prefixes without being incompatible.

    Consequently, the namespace prefixes should not be important for you.
