XEDI Gains Additional Endorsements From Industry Experts; XML Representation of EDI Endorsed by Cameron Consulting
MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Cameron Consulting, a market analysis
and consulting firm specializing in the researching of critical computer
technology areas, today endorsed XMLSolutions' XEDI (zee-dee) approach to the
XML representation of EDI (electronic data interchange) documents.
``XEDI leverages information inherent in EDI itself, providing a base on
which to build more complex applications in the future while providing full
EDI support today. Further, XEDI can take EDI and map it to the format of any
of the other standards currently under development today, such as RosettaNet
or cXML,'' stated Debra Cameron, President, Cameron Consulting. ``While
alternative approaches to XML/EDI struggle to support the hundreds of
transactions available in X12 and EDIFACT, writing DTDs for each transaction,
XEDI is designed to support the entire X12 dictionary and the entire EDIFACT
dictionary with a single 30-line DTD.''
Cameron continued, ``XEDI is hard in only one sense. When much time and
energy has been devoted to solving a complex problem in a complex way, it is
difficult to put that investment aside long enough to weigh new ideas.
Everyone involved in XML e-commerce standards development today should take
the time to fully consider XEDI. It is a truly elegant solution to the XML-EDI
``We continue to see an outpouring of support for the XEDI approach as it
solves one of the leading problems of integrating legacy systems with
e-commerce and the Internet,'' stated Kevin Kail, CEO, XMLSolutions.
Information on the XEDI approach to XML representation of EDI is available
to the general public at http://www.xedi.org and is an open source, open
