TRADACOMSValidator Module

Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

TRADACOMSValidator is a lightweight EDI validation module designed for simple document validation.

Syntax

IPWorksEDI.Tradacomsvalidator

Remarks

This component provides a simple way to validate an EDI document and obtain details about any validation errors.

EDI Validation

Before calling Validate set SchemaFormat and call LoadSchema to load the schema for the document to be validated. The schema defines many validation rules such as minimum and maximum lengths, minimum and maximum occurrences, and more. The validation performed by the class depends largely on the schema's definition.

When the Validate method is called the class will attempt to validate the document. If errors are found during validation the ValidationError event will fire with details about each error as it is encountered. After the document has been validated the ValidationErrors property will be populated with details of each error.

Inspect the ValidationErrors property for information on any errors that were encountered.

Validation Example validator.InputFile = "files/EDIDocuments/MyEDIDoc.txt"; validator.LoadSchema("my_schemas/00501/RSSBus_005010X222A1_837.json"); validator.Validate(); foreach (ValidationErrorDetail error in validator.ValidationErrors) { Console.WriteLine(error.ErrorCode + ": " + error.Message); }

SchemaFormat Property (TRADACOMSValidator Module)

The format of the schema file.

Syntax

public var schemaFormat: TradacomsvalidatorSchemaFormats {
  get {...}
  set {...}
}

public enum TradacomsvalidatorSchemaFormats: Int32 { case schemaAutomatic = 0 case schemaBinary = 1 case schemaBizTalk = 2 case schemaSEF = 3 case schemaBOTS = 4 case schemaAltova = 5 case schemaJSON = 6 }

CompileSchema Method (TRADACOMSValidator Module)

Compiles an existing XSD schema into an optimized binary representation.

Syntax

public func compileSchema(xsdSchema: String, binSchema: String) throws -> Void
- (void)compileSchema:(NSString*)xsdSchema :(NSString*)binSchema;

Remarks

This method parses XsdSchema and generates an optimized binary representation that is saved into the path referenced by BinSchema. Binary schemas are smaller and require less resources when loading later using LoadSchema

If the schema file does not exists or cannot be parsed as an EDI schema, the component throws an exception.

Config Method (TRADACOMSValidator Module)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

public func config(configurationString: String) throws -> String
- (NSString*)config:(NSString*)configurationString;

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

DisplaySchemaInfo Method (TRADACOMSValidator Module)

Returns a string showing the structure of the schema defining the document.

Syntax

public func displaySchemaInfo() throws -> String
- (NSString*)displaySchemaInfo;

Remarks

After calling LoadSchema this may be called to obtain information about the structure of the schema defining the document. If the desired XPath is not known this helps determine the structure so that the correct XPath can be built.

Note: A valid schema must be loaded via LoadSchema.

For instance: Console.WriteLine(component.DisplaySchemaInfo()); Will output text like:

TechnicalErrorCode holds a technical error code that helps identify structural issues with the document. For instance when parsing an X12 document this will hold values that may be used for TA1 error codes. When parsing X12 documents the following codes are applicable:

001The Interchange Control Numbers in the header ISA 13 and trailer IEA02 do not match.
014Invalid interchange date value (non-numeric characters or wrong length).
015Invalid interchange time value (non-numeric characters or wrong length).
022The ISA segment is missing elements (invalid control structure).
024Invalid interchange content (e.g., Invalid GS segment).

Config Settings (TRADACOMSValidator Module)

The class accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

TRADACOMSValidator Config Settings

ComponentDelimiter:   The delimiter separating components.

After parsing an EDI document, this configuration option will return the delimiter used to separate components within data elements of the EDI document.

This configuration option may be set in the StartInterchange event to specify the delimiter to be used.

CrossFieldValidationEnabled:   Enables cross-field validation rules.

If (default), cross-field validation rules present in the document schema will be checked.

Note, Bots Schema Files do not support syntax rules, therefore CrossFieldValidation rules will never execute for these schemas.

ElementDelimiter:   The delimiter character separating data elements.

After parsing an EDI document, this configuration option will return the delimiter used to separate data elements within segments of the EDI document.

This configuration option may be set in the StartInterchange event to specify the delimiter to be used.

Encoding:   The character encoding to be applied when reading and writing data.

If the data contains non-ASCII characters this setting should be specified so characters are properly preserved. This value should be set to a valid character set such as "UTF-8" or "ISO-8859-1".

ExtraData:   Extra data that has not been parsed by the component.

This setting will only be populated after the Flush method has been called and data exists in the internal parser which has not been processed.

HasXPath:   Determines if the specified XPath exists.

This setting can be used to query if an XPath exists before setting XPath. For instance: Console.WriteLine(edireader.Config("HasXPath=IX/FG/TX/IT1Loop1/[2]"));

ISA11IsRepetitionSeparator:   Specifies whether the ISA11 value is treated as a Repetition Separator or Standard Identifier.

By default this value is True and the ISA11 value is treated as a Repetition Separator in all documents with version 004040 or greater. Set this value to False to treat ISA11 as a Standard Identifier instead of a Repetition Separator.

MaxValidationErrors:   The maximum number of errors to save in the ValidationErrors property.

This setting specifies the maximum number of errors that will be kept in the ValidationErrors property. Once this limit is exceeded the ValidationError event will continue to fire but details will not be saved in the ValidationErrors property. The default value is 200.

ReleaseChar:   The character used to escape delimiters within values.

After parsing an EDI document, this configuration option will return the escape character used to escape delimiters within values within the EDI document.

This configuration option may be set in the StartInterchange event to specify the escape character to be used.

ResolveXPathOnSet:   Determines whether or not the XPath is resolved when set.

When true, the class will fully resolve a detailed path when XPath is specified. In this case, the XPath property will contain the XSegment s name as well as the indices when queried after being set.

If this value is set to false, the exact string will be returned when the XPath property is queried from the last time it was set.

For example, the following code will print the string "/[1]/[1]/[1]/[10]" when this value is false, and would print "/IX[1]/FG[1]/TX[1]/IT1Loop1[4]" when this value is true: reader.XPath = "/[1]/[1]/[1]/[10]"; Console.WriteLine(reader.XPath);

In another example, the following code sample will print "IX/FG/TX/IT1Loop1" when false and would print "/IX[1]/FG[1]/TX[1]/IT1Loop1[1]" when true: reader.XPath = "IX/FG/TX/IT1Loop1"; Console.WriteLine(reader.XPath);

This is useful in cases where the full XPath including indices is needed for future processing.

SegmentDelimiter:   The delimiter character separating segments within the EDI document.

After parsing an EDI document, this configuration option will return the delimiter used to separate segments within the EDI document.

This configuration option may be set in the StartInterchange event to specify the delimiter to be used.

StrictSchemaValidation:   Specifies the behavior during schema validation.

This setting specifies what happens when performing schema validation and a validation warning occurs. By default this value is set to 1 (Warn) and the Warning event will fire, but processing will not stop. See the WarnCode parameter list in the Warning event for details about possible validation warnings. Possible values for this setting are:

0 (Ignore) All validation warnings will be ignored. Warning will not fire with warnings.
1 (Warn - default) The Warning event will fire with all validation warnings.
2 (Error) All validation warnings are treated as errors and will cause an exception. Processing will stop immediately.

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

CodePage:   The system code page used for Unicode to Multibyte translations.

The default code page is Unicode UTF-8 (65001).

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a class is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the class whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the class will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. Setting this to tells the class to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.
