AN EDI MESSAGE FOR EXCHANGING CLASSIFICATIONS

By English Only

Abstract

CLASET is an EDI message designed to facilitate the exchange of tree structures such as classifications, code lists, organisational charts, concept definitions, catalogues, etc. The message has been designed in a generic way and provides mechanisms to describe the nature of the information exchanged within it. All the implementation and software tools are based on a unique Conceptual Data Model (CDM). This CDM can be used to define all information needed about the message and three main data structures: classifications, tables of links between two classifications and updates. This CDM can be used not only as an exchange message, but also as a database model. CLASET is presently implemented in four formats: XML, SGML, UN/EDIFACT and HTML; this list is not at all finite: new syntaxes might come under consideration for inclusion in the message, with the move to yet unknown technologies.
