Parsing DEX 894 and 895 files
We're evaluating EdiFabric to parse DEX transmissions (it's a form of EDI but comes in from a DSD serial port). The documents in question are EDI X12 894 and 895s.
How do we create a custom envelope in EdiFabric to support DEX headers. The envelope starts with DXS and ends with DXE. NEX starts with ISA, so it's a little different.
How can I use a custom envelope, or create a template or whatever to parse incoming 894 and 895 files wrapped this way?
Here's an example transmission. Note the DXS and DXE envelope.

This is kind of a niche topic so here's a little more info:
> DEX, Direct Exchange, is a form of electronic data interchange, EDI,
> used by direct store delivery, DSD, distributors to electronically
> send their delivery information, invoices and or credit memos, to the
> retailer at the time of delivery. DEX is the industry standard where
> any vendor who is DEX capable is able to electronically send their
> invoices to any retailer that is DEX capable, regardless of who that
> vendor or retailer is using for their DEX software. DEX has been
> around for many years and is used by all major grocery retailers as
> well as numerous smaller chains and convenience stores.
EdiFabric doesn't currently support the DEX standard, but we will include it in the next release due in April.
Until then, the best option I can offer you is to try and create a template for the FaltFile parser, here is more info, and the GitHub repository for code examples.
This feature has now been released.
