The XML2EDI component is used for transforming information from XML format to EDI format. This component accepts data in XML format and transforms it to the required EDI format. It uses Eagle library to do the transformation.

  • The component takes EFL file as input in the CPS which describes the conversion rules.
    • EFL files can be created or modified using the Fiorano eStudio tool.
