EDISIM® Components
EDISIM has these components to help you increase productivity and reduce risks
associated with EDI:

Standards Editor lets you start with a published standard and create your own
customized guideline or MIG from it. These feed into all other parts of EDISIM
and into all other TIBCO Foresight products.

Document Builder prints a finished guideline or MIG created with Standards
Editor. You can give this document to each party involved in the trading
relationship.

EDISIM Validator checks EDI data for compliance to a published standard or a
guideline or MIG created with Standards Editor. These include flat file, EANCOM,
EDIFACT, HIPAA EDI, X12, VICS, UCS, NCPDP, NSF, UB92, and XML. This
is a newer validation tool than Analyzer and supports more business rules.

Analyzer EDI data for compliance to a published standard or a guideline or MIG
created with Standards Editor. These include EANCOM, EDIFACT, GENCOD,
HIPAA EDI, X12, VICS, UCS, ODETTE, and TRADACOMS.

Standards Reference is a read-only version of Standards Editor, allowing you to
safely review and share the details about a guideline, without fear of unwanted
changes.

Library is a guideline viewer that shows all parts of the selected item in a
convenient, one-screen display. It also teams up with EDISIM Validator to show
the relevant guideline specifications for each diagnostic or line of data.

Test Data Generator lets you create test EDI data based on published standards,
or guidelines and MIGs created with Standards Editor.
Introduction to EDISIM


Comparator lets you compare two published standards, guidelines, or MIGs. You
get a report of the differences, which you can browse on the screen or print. You
can selectively or globally migrate user changes from one guideline to another.

What You Need to Run EDISIM
Please see the readme.txt file that accompanies in EDISIM for system requirements
information.
Installation
Full instructions for installation are in TIB_fsp_edisim_n.n.n_installation.pdf. This
file also contains information and announcements about the current version.
Installing Additional Standards
You may decide to install more standards after you have already installed EDISIM. To
do this, rerun the installation program. Follow the prompts, choosing Standards Only.
Newly-released standards can be downloaded from the TIBCO Product Support file
transfer server, mft.tibco.com, using your username and password for the TIBCO
Support Web. You can use FTP, SFTP (FTP or SFTP use requires an FTP/SFTP client

JAVA applet support in your browser).

Concurrent Use of EDISIM Components in Windows
You can have multiple EDISIM components open at once, assuming that you have
enough memory and a large enough Windows swap file. However, modules that write to
the database (Standards Editor and Comparator target) must have exclusive use of a
guideline or MIG.

Examples:
If guideline A is already opened for writing by Standards Editor:

Another user cannot open it for writing.

The same user cannot open it for writing (by using it as a Comparator migration
target).

The same user, or other users, can open it for reading, but they will see a read-only
copy of the guideline/MIG as it was at the moment it was opened. Changes made
while they are viewing it will not appear.
