Pointing finger at the computer interface points to the term "JSON".

New JSON schema guide functions – More flexibility and quality for EDI

The GEFEG.FX JSON schema editor is being continuously enhanced and now offers even more functions for the development of JSON schemas. Further functions are already planned for the next GEFEG.FX releases and are already under development.

You can now develop JSON schema guides with GEFEG.FX. This new function extends the JSON schema editor and brings the proven guide technology to JSON schemas. After a GEFEG.FX update, these new options will be available to users of the JSON schema editor. In this article, we introduce the Guide technology and explain its benefits for users.

What is a guide in GEFEG.FX and how do I use it?

A GEFEG.FX Guide is a data structure customised to the individual requirements of a user, also known as a specification, implementation regulation or application guideline. This describes the specific application of an EDI standard, XML schema or data model in practice. GEFEG.FX users are already familiar with this option from other areas, such as the development of XML schema guides or data model guides.

Imagine a transparent layer over your basic schema. We call this layer a guide. The use of guide technology makes it possible to visualise, comment on and restrict structural elements of these guides without changing the underlying basic schema. In short, you can now develop JSON schema guides based on JSON schemas.

Benefits of the guide technology

  • Flexibility: You can exchange the basic schema without having to redevelop the guide. Your data structures always remain up-to-date and the maintenance effort is low.
  • Control: You retain control over your data structures, even with external changes or schemas from third-party providers.
  • Multiple application profiles: You can create different guides for the same basic schema and thus maintain different application profiles.
  • Complex application scenarios: Several guides can be placed on top of each other. This allows different user groups in more complex usage scenarios to define their own guidelines for successive levels.
  • High data quality: The guidelines are continuously validated against the base schema during creation and updating. This automatic checking process ensures that no errors are made when defining a specification. The high data quality of your own specification is therefore always guaranteed.

JSON schemas – Business data management requirements always in view

With the guide technology for JSON schemas, we continue to offer up-to-date solutions for the design phase in B2B, EDI and EAI processes, and always keep an eye on the management of business data. The JSON schema editor offers the possibility to design and organise complex data structures as well as the flexibility to dynamically adapt your schemas to changing requirements. We are convinced that JSON schema guides are a valuable addition for all users who want to expand their EDI activities with JSON technology.
