Data Conversion Support
Advanced XML Conversion and Streaming
In addition to its data aggregation capabilities, Progress DataDirect Data Integration Suite is an advanced data conversion tool, allowing developers to stream between any non-XML formats and XML, transparently reshape the XML for their application or store the XML in a relational database.
- EDI Standards –The Data Integration Suite supports programmatic, bi-directional access to virtually every EDI standard, including: EANCOM, EDIFACT, Edig@s, HIPAA, HL7, IATA Cargo-IMP, IATA PADIS, NCPDP, SEF (Standard Exchange Format), TRADACOMS and ASC X12.
- Flat File Formats – supports flat file formats like tab-delimited, comma-separated value (CSV), dBase files, and many more.
- BizTalk Server – deploys natively on BizTalk Server, enabling BizTalk applications to work with business data in any number of non-XML formats.
The Data Integration Suite accomplishes all this via high-performance Java and .NET components that provide bi-directional, programmatic access to virtually any non-XML file. The Data Integration Suite supports StAX, SAX, XmlReader, XmlWriter, DOM and I/O streaming interfaces, and can be embedded directly for transformation purposes, or as part of a chain of programs, or even inside XML pipelines.
