Crossgate Canonical Structure

Hello Experts,

Can you please clarify a query regarding Crossgate Canonical XML structure.

As per documentation available on internet

"Crossgate has standardized their processes into one canonical form for each transaction type"

we are currently dealing with EDIFACT messages and have a canonical XML structure for each message type ,e.g. for ORDERS

If we switch to some other EDI standard, say, ANSI X12, will this canonical XML structure for ANSI X12 ORDERS will remain the same or do we have different canonical XML structures for ANSI X12.

Basically, what would be the changes in mapping for an existing customer when we switch from EDIFACT to ANSI X12?

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards,

Shweta

      Hi Shweta,

      I just found your post and I do think I have the right answer.

      The advantange of the Crossgate solution in conjunction with PI is that mappings on PI do not have to be changed as all stuff that is specific to a certain EDI format (X.12, Edifact, Idoc, ...) is covered by the Crossgate Layer ( SAP Information Interchange).

      Kind regards

      Dirk
