Hep needed on MAP Step

I am new to Webmethods.I am unable to understand MAP Step as what does it used for ?

Like conventional Java you can use MAP step as below:

int a=1; //initialization

In webMethods, we do the above and also use the MAP step so map the source document/fields to target document/fields.

Dropping variables which are no longer required in the next steps.

Read the Service Development Help Guide for more details.

Map statements are used:
– to set values
– to drop variables from the pipeline
– to link data (copy) from one variable to another
– to transform data during copying

Apart from the Map data elaborated above please check this online documentation and mainly look for Service Development User guide for any basic webMethod Flow language etc… terms
