Paradine provides with the eCl@ss-API a Software-Library, which makes it easier to integrate the eCl@ss standard in application systems and to toughen up systems to read and write eCl@ss-compliant data. As part of the integration of the eCl@ss API, mappings of the eCl@ss structure elements are created for your native structure elements.
The eCl@ss e.V. offers the eCl@ss 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 eCl@ss-XML-format.
With release of eCl@ss 7.0 additionally to the previously offered BASIC version (flatt attributes), the ADVANCED version is now available. The ADVANCED Version of eCl@ss uses new structural elements such as blocks, cardinality, or polymorphism to map complex products. More and more software vendors implement eCl@ss to offer customers the opportunity to participate in structured electronic exchange of product data according to the eCl@ss standard.
