Handling big messages
« on: April 01, 2011, 11:52:53 pm »
Hello everybody,

I'm faced with an exisiting Softwaresystem, exchanging much data by MoM. They use large and complex XML file as message.

They work in a very agile ...  ::) i should say chaotic way... nothing structured documentated and so on...

I trying to use EA to handle this huge amount of data and get an overview. by reverse engineering???

Any ideas?

Best regards

You can import a xsd into EA, and then use the imported elements to create a nice diagram of the message structure.
I've done that on several occasions in similar circumstances.
