Subject:EDIFACT guideline from Stylus Studio Author:Bruce Cantor Date:02 Dec 2021 11:41 AM
We have several EDI partners that are using EDIFACT.
Some of them do not have a guideline for the EDIFACT, so they ask us for one.
Currently we have defined the guidelines using an external tool, (https://app.truugo.com/) - the site has a nice interface where the EDIFACT subset can be defined and a link can be sent to the EDI partner.
Unfortunately this service is getting quite pricey, and we are therefore looking after another way to share the subset with our partners.
Looking at the Stylus Studio sef editor, I can create a XML schema from the editor. But an XML schema is not ideal when communicating with partners that only know about EDIFACT.
I was thinking that it should be possible to create an HTML from the XML schema, making it readable for non XML readers to understand. Have anybody created something that an EDIFACT developer would like to read? The standard documentation feature in Stylus is showing a lot XML related stuff that cannot be sent to a EDIFACT partner
Has anybody tried this, or do you have another preferred way to share your EDIFACT subsets with you partners?
