XML Schema Development for EDI with GEFEG.FX
Increasingly, companies are using XML Schema to develop their EDI specifications. The use of classic EDI standards for data exchange is thus being supplemented by XML Schema as a further data exchange format. The focus of XML Schema development with GEFEG.FX is clearly on schemas for business data. As an alternative to the development of your own, company-specific XML schemas, you can use established XML standards in GEFEG.FX, adapt them to your requirements in a time-saving manner using the software’s guide technology, e.g. CEFACT XML, GS1 XML, connectSpec (former OAGIS) or UBL, and drastically reduce your future maintenance effort.
In this training, users receive a sound introduction to XML Schema development with GEFEG.FX. Of course, the practical part is carried out with the GEFEG.FX software. As an introduction, the basics of XML Schema are repeated. Then it will be explained how GEFEG.FX can be used to build your own schemas or to document existing ones based on established eBusiness standards, such as GS1 XML, ISO 20022, connectSpec (former OAGIS), ZUGFeRD). The participants thus get an introduction to the comprehensive software support for the creation of XML schema specifications, in order to be able to work independently with the software afterwards. Users who use both classic EDI standards and XML Schemas, can use the mapping functions support in GEFEG.FX for the integration of different data exchange formats.
