Paradine provides with the ECLASS-API a Software-Library, which makes it easier to integrate the ECLASS standard in application systems and to toughen up systems to read and write ECLASS-compliant data. As part of the integration of the ECLASS API, mappings of the ECLASS structure elements are created for your native structure elements.
The ECLASS e.V. offers the ECLASS classification standard to establish an international, cross-industry, multi-lingual classification and product description standard.
Products and services can be classified and described with specific properties. The standard is provided in the form of so called Dictionaries in ECLASS-XML-format.
With release of ECLASS 7.0 additionally to the previously offered BASIC version (flatt attributes), the ADVANCED version is now available. The ADVANCED Version of ECLASS uses new structural elements such as blocks, cardinality, or polymorphism to map complex products. More and more software vendors implement ECLASS to offer customers the opportunity to participate in structured electronic exchange of product data according to the ECLASS standard.
