General EDI/Non-EDI question regarding ACK's RRS feed

  • Question

  • We developed a non EDI but EDI-like application that receives data from sql server, builds text files from EDI document schemas and sends them to external warehouses for processing.

    I am going to have to write my own ACK logic and re-send/alert if files are not received within a period of time.

    I am wondering if this was a fully EDI application, are ACK's processed as part of the send/receive cycles without having to manually create to logic to track what was sent and when?

    Not sure it makes sense but if it does any reply would be appreciated.

    Kind Regards

  • EDI or Electronic Data Interchange is a fairly broad term (more information on Google).  I think when talking about EDI in a BizTalk context a lot of people are referring to AS2.
