Subject:Compare Stylus Studio with OBOE Author:kenneth westelinck Date:12 Sep 2006 09:09 AM
I am using Stylus as the preferred tool for creating my XSLTs. I have recently discovered that the enterprise version of Stylus includes transforming EDI to XML and vice versa. In the past I was using OBOE for this (http://www.americancoders.com/OpenBusinessObjects/index.html). This is a Java API capable of transforming EDI (X12 and Edifact) to XML and vice versa. I was wondering how Stylus compares to this. Looking at the samples, I can only perform an EDI 2 XML transform by using the command line. I guess if I want to use Stylus the same way as OBOE (i.e. use it as an API), Iíll need the deployment adapters (http://www.stylusstudio.com/deployment/faq.html). Is this correct?
Many thanks in advance.
