Enhance mapping node to easily work with SPSS wsdl

A common implementation pattern for the next best action signature solution is to have an esb which issues a SOAP call to SPSS decision management. The wsdl that SPSS exposes is named value pairs. It is not very usable at the moment to use the graphical editor to populate a large number of name value pairs. This rfe is to add support to the mapper to more easily populate soa requests whose wsdl is named value pairs (partuklarly SPSS, though MDM SE also supports a similar wsdl pattern).

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. Since this suggestion was initially raised, our strong suspicion is that this technology area and the world of integration with SPSS may well have moved beyond this specific WSDL form. This, coupled with the solitary vote received over many years leads us to close this suggestion. If the need still exists, please feel free to clarify the current situation and raise against a more recent product release (as this area would most likely be addressed these days through a Designer connector).

    Good requirement, thanks for raising. We aim to make the Graphical Data Mapper easy to use for all data formats, including ones with large numbers of name/value pairs like you suggest. We'll take this enhancement as a good candidate for a follow-on release or fixpack.
