What is ediFabric ?
ediFabric is a .NET library, which allows your applications to gain full control
over the structure of EDI documents by converting them into typed .NET objects.
Parsing EDI messages can be as easy as adding a reference in your project. No heavy
deployment or configuration is required - just download the library and start using
it in a couple of straightforward steps.
How does it work ?
ediFabric is distributed as a Visual Studio 2010 solution and a set of EDI definitions
in the form of C# files. All EDI definitions are classes describing the messages,
segments and elements of both EDIFACT and X12 formats, and cover most of the versions
in use. All classes are generated using Xsd2Code
from the set of xsd schemas, which is also included in the package.
To start using it, simply pick up the file containing the classes for the version
and type you want to convert, add it to the solution, rebuild it and add a reference
to it in your project. It is really that easy - just a project reference and off
Wondering what to do if your EDI messages are non-standard ? That's absolutely fine
as ediFabric gives you the flexibility to create and use your own definitions. You
simply handcraft them following a few basic rules and will happily support every
custom format within minutes.
All definitions are based on ISO/TS 20625.
