#1093 closed enhancement (fixed)

Test-with-file function should try to match properties to file columns

Description

This would be very handy if the file contains a lot of columns. The difficulty is that a "strict" comparison with equals() will probably not match many columns at all. I think some kind of "fuzzy" matching is required to make this feature useful. Maybe this code can be used: http://secondstring.sourceforge.net/

If the fuzzy matching has found anything it should be possible to click a button in the web interface that automatically generates the correct column mapping expressions.

Sound great, all mappings but 'Parent' should be doable?

I have made some tests with the fuzzy string matching package and it looks promising.
