Whitepaper: Creating Web-Based EDI Applications With AJAX

by American CodersJan 01, 2008

EDI application on the web involves building a client application for data entry and a server side application for processing the data. AJAX technology has evolved to make this process much easier using the underlying X12 and EDI FACT standards to directly generate consistent user interface templates.

This basic process seems straight forward and intuitive; but, it leads to development environments that can produce very mixed results.
