Add XML file items
After unpacking the source distribution, you will need to add two types of XML
files to your Web application, or library project (and Test project if you
have one). These files are:
- -- A Data Map file that contains your SQL queries. Your project will contain one
or more of these files with names such as Account.xml or Product.xml.
The DataMapper configuration file that is used to specify the locations of your
SqlMap.xml files. It is also used to define other DataMapper
configuration options such as caching. You will need to include one SqlMap.config
file for each data source that your project has.
As expected, the SqlMap.config file should be (by default) placed where the DataMapper
can find them at runtime.
