XML structures of eBIZ/TC Upstream documents (2018-1)
Introduction to the XML document template
The structure of the XML documents is the very prescriptive part of the eBIZ/TC Upstream framework:
using the eBIZ/TC Upstream documents, the prescriptions must be completely respected about structure of the documents, names and coding,
optionality or mandatory use of elements, meaning of each element.
Otherwise the documents could be not validable with the XML Schema (that are the only way to check the
formal compliance of the documents) or could generate misunderstandings about the meaning of the message on the side of your partners.
The allowable customisations are about the use or not of a document or about the elements of the document that are declared 'optional'; they can
be used to simplify the documents (not all the elements are always necessary).
The (template of) eBIZ/TC Upstream documents of each release are on www.ebiz.enea.it or www.moda-ml.org and are represented by:
XML Schemas, public but that cannot be modified,
they must be used to validate the XML documents.
User Guides, that completely describe the structure and the aim of the documents,
together with the elements and their coding rules.
Compare version User Guides, with comparison against the previous version of the same document (available for this version: TRUE).
Equivalent JSON schema towards XML Schema of the document (available for this version: False).
in some cases, Samples and Stylesheets(XSL) might be available
and can be used to visualize with a browser the content of the XML documents.
The proposed stylesheets should be considered as a sample or a reference
to be used directly or customised or ignored and substituted with custom stylesheets.
Document General Purpose Request
General Purpose Request (Updated)
Request for a specific electronic document as indicated in the instance
This document is used to solicit the sending of a document when this is produced only on request (e.g.: the Order Status)
The message is issued to request a particular (paper or electronic) business document.
With this document it is possible to indicate the type of the requested document ,
and one or more blocks of filtering criteria (the Party, identified by legal name or id, to which it refers,
and/or one or more items to be referred to, eg season, article or fabric or component code, …)
The document could be used to request the order progress status for a season and a group of articles whose code is indicated;
in another case it could be sent to a warehouse manager to request the inventory related to one or more particular brands whose legal name is indicated;
another example is the use for requesting the PartyIn document concerning information on one or more parties, indicating their legal names or unique codes.
