Father of Markup Languages Praises Use of XML in XMLSolutions' XEDI Translator

Dr. Charles F. Goldfarb views XEDI as "future-proofed"

MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The father of markup languages and the inventor of XML's parent, SGML, says XMLSolutions' XEDI Translator employs an ingenious approach for the representation of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) information in XML. The XEDI Translator, released last week, enables companies using EDI to expand their set of business partners instantly by automatically translating EDI documents to and from XML, the language of business-to-business e-commerce.

According to Dr. Charles F. Goldfarb, ``XMLSolutions' XEDI Translator makes ingenious use of XML's ability to represent any semantics in a single universal syntax. Instead of treating each EDI message as a unique document type, the software cleverly handles all messages consistently. It is therefore 'future-proofed' for any new or revised messages the standards committees might create.''

EDI and web-enabled e-commerce are major themes of the Second Edition of Dr. Goldfarb's XML Handbook, recently published by Prentice-Hall.

Information on the XEDI approach to XML representation of EDI is available at http://www.xedi.org. Information on the XEDI Translator is available at XMLSolutions' web site at http://www.xmls.com.
