DFDL schemas for UN/EDIFACT

Added by Steve Hanson over 5 years ago

A new repository has been added to the DFDLSchemas GitHub website which contains DFDL schemas for the UN/EDIFACT standard.

The initial schemas in the repository model a selection of supply chain messages from the D03B release, namely DESADV, INVOIC, ORDCHG, ORDERS, ORDRSP, RECADV and REMADV. Other messages and releases are available from IBM.

The schemas are compatible with IBM DFDL 1.0 and 1.1 releases, as shipped in IBM WebSphere Message Broker onwards and IBM Integration Bus onwards, respectively.

The schemas include the following features:

  • Full UN/EDIFACT interchange;
  • Dynamically defined delimiters via UNA segment;
  • Syntax version 4 and syntax version 3 (minor edit required);
  • Segments with or without new lines at the end;
  • Interactive messages via UIH/UIT segments;
  • AUTACK, CONTRL and KEYMAN service messages;
  • Separate schemas for each industry/release combination, in their own namespace.
