Mapstruct Field Mappings1
5 years agoJava
MapStruct is a code generator that greatly simplifies the implementation of mappings between Java bean types based on a convention over configuration approach. The generated mapping code uses plain method invocations and thus is fast, type-safe and easy to understand.

Mapster - The Mapper of Your Domain

Writing mapping methods is a machine job. Do not waste your time, let Mapster do it.



Install Mapster with the NuGet CLI:

Install-Package Mapster

Or use the .NET core CLI to install Mapster:

dotnet add package Mapster

Basic usage

Mapping to a new object

Mapster creates the destination object and maps values to it.

var destObject = sourceObject.Adapt<Destination>();

Mapping to an existing object

You create the object, Mapster maps to the object.


You can get IMapper instance via dependency injection so you do not have to change code when migrating to mapster from automapper

Add Mapster to service collection


And use it with DI

public class Test
    public Test(IMapper mapper)
        var sourceObject = mapper.Adapt<Destination>();

Queryable Extensions

Mapster also provides extensions to map queryables.

using (MyDbContext context = new MyDbContext())
    // Build a Select Expression from DTO
    var destinations = context.Sources.ProjectToType<Destination>().ToList();

    // Versus creating by hand:
    var destinations = context.Sources.Select(c => new Destination {
        Id = c.Id,
        Name = c.Name,
        Surname = c.Surname,

Generating models & mappers

No need to write your own DTO classes. Mapster provides Mapster.Tool to help you generating models. And if you would like to have explicit mapping, Mapster also generates mapper class for you.

[AdaptTo("[name]Dto"), GenerateMapper]
public class Student {

Then Mapster will generate:

public class StudentDto {
public static class StudentMapper {
    public static StudentDto AdaptToDto(this Student poco) { ... }
    public static StudentDto AdaptTo(this Student poco, StudentDto dto) { ... }
    public static Expression<Func<Student, StudentDto>> ProjectToDto => ...

Why Mapster?

Performance & Memory efficient

Mapster was designed to be efficient on both speed and memory. You could gain a 4x performance improvement whilst using only 1/3 of memory. And you could gain up to 12x faster performance with

Step into debugging

Step-into debugging lets you debug your mapping and inspect values just like your code. image

Code Generation

Code generation allows you to

  • Validate mapping at compile time
  • Getting raw performance
  • Seeing your mapping code & debugging
  • Finding usage of your models' properties

There are currently two tools which you can choose based on your preferences.
