Does EDIReader support EDI standards other than EDIFACT and ANSI X12 ?
Sunday, 04 February 2007
Yes. The object oriented framework allows for a specific EDI standard to be developed as a subclass of an appropriate parent class; the AnsiReader and EdifactReader classes are examples and contains virtually all of the standard-specific knowledge of these two standards. This means it is relatively easy to add support for additional EDI standards. BerryWorks Software provides support for HL7 and ACH in this way, although these extensions are not included in the GPL release of EDIReader. Support for the Tradacomms standard has been completed as a proof-of-concept.
