EDItX Overview

Developed jointly in collaboration with BISG and BIC, and with input from EDItEUR members in other countries, notably Germany and Denmark, EDItEUR’s EDItX transactional document formats in XML mirror and extend the functionality of existing X12, TRADACOMS and EDIFACT messages for the book trade and library sectors.

EDItX format is specified by an XML Schema, with supporting information in an Outline Specification. The Outline Specification in each case provides an introduction to the format and the functionality which it supports. Each XML Schema constitutes a formal definition in a set of XML files, allowing standard XML software to parse, verify and operate on the content of correctly formulated EDItX messages.
