Implementation decision about EDIFACT to XML conversion

Hi

My company wants to convert invoices received in EDIFACT D93A format into a native xml format. Until now i have used content conversion with for other vendors, but now a vendor uses EDIFACT D93A format. the content conversion can be tedious and complex to debug.

Our XI is on NW2004s SP 10

How can i check if conversion agent is already present on my XI ? Is not is Installing it is the work of Basis consultant or XI consultant?

How technically hard is the whole installation Process?

I would like suggestions and recommendations how to implement this,

The options i found out until now are ( in order of simplicity)

1. Integrating Stylus studio , and calling it from adapter module parameters tab in CC .

2. Using Conversion agent by Itemfield and calling it in module parameters tab in CC

3. Using Seeburger EDI adapter

4. Using content conversion in file adapter.

Considering cost and Technical implementation difficulties what is the best approach and are there any other approaches?

Thanks a lot

    4. Not possible or extremely difficult

    3. Costly

    2. Good option. But would require minimum 590MB installation space

    1. Adapter module could be developed but it would be a bit time consuming

    Seeburger Adapter's BIC Mapping module can do the trick

    For File adapter content conversion, u wud have to make up a module and include in the adapter's module tab but its not difficult

    Others wud require some serious thinking 😊

      You have to create adapter module processor and you have to add to your module processor bean to the adapter in File Adapter.....and yeah it means java code
