■ Background With the end of the INS Net Digital Communication Mode service scheduled for January 2024, a transition from “legacy procedures” such as JCA procedures, Zengin Basic procedures and Zengin TCP / IP procedures to Internet EDI is required. Distribution BMS, which has been in use since 2007, is expanding its use mainly in the distribution industry. With the announcement of the end of service in the INS net digital communication mode, the number of companies considering the transition of EDI environment to “Distribution BMS” is also increasing, and this time it is possible to use “Distribution BMS” on IBM i. , “Toolbox JX client” will be added “XML conversion function” corresponding to the distribution BMS basic system Ver1.3. * 1: Distribution BMS is an abbreviation of “Distribution Business Message Standards”, which is an EDI standard specification that can be uniformly used by distributors (manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers). It was established in April 2007 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry “Distribution System Standardization Project”. By supporting distribution BMS, distributors can exchange data such as orders, shipments, receipts, inspections, and invoices at high speed and at low cost. ※ 2: JX procedure is Japan’s original Internet communication procedure using communication protocol (SOAP-RPC) defined in international standard, and takes client / server type system form, and client is same as old JCA procedure. This is a PULL type communication method in which the side is the starting point of processing. It can be introduced at low cost compared to the PUSH type communication method, and it is adopted in the “Distribution BMS (R)” communication protocol, and is already widely used in the distribution industry.
■ Features of “Toolbox JX client XML conversion function” ・ No need for complicated XML file conversion program When using “Distributed BMS”, a file conversion program is required to use on IBM i, since transmission and reception are performed using XML format files. By using the XML conversion function of Toolbox JX client and executing commands on IBM i, it is possible to convert between fixed-length format and XML file, so that the conventional operation can be performed without setting up a complicated conversion program. In the form of “distribution BMS” is available from IBM i. ・ Easy transition from legacy procedures to “distribution BMS” “Toolbox JX Client” enables centralized management of communication methods on the same IBM i, and migration from legacy procedures to “Distributed BMS” is also easy by simply changing the communication definition on IBM i You can migrate your EDI environment to In addition, it becomes possible to migrate EDI environment according to the situation of communication partner, such as legacy procedure to JX procedure, legacy procedure to distribution BMS.
