About

The gofact parser is an parser for EDIFACT messages (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EDIFACT) written in GO. The parser accomplished the lexical and syntactic analysis of EDIFACT messages. Documents and/or website used to implement the logic can be found on the doc folder. Supported messages are standard EDIFACT and the EANCOM subset.

The output of the parser will be segments with the message tag and the related data.

    Segmenttype: ServiceSegment                    |Tag :UNH   |Data: +ME000001+ORDERS:D:01B:UN:EAN010'
    Segmenttype: Beginning of message              |Tag :BGM   |Data: +220+128576+9'
    Segmenttype: Date/time/period                  |Tag :DTM   |Data: +137:20020830:102'
    Segmenttype: Payment instructions              |Tag :PAI   |Data: +::42’ALI+++136’FTX+ZZZ+1+001::91’RFF+CT:652744'
    Segmenttype: Date/time/period                  |Tag :DTM   |Data: +171:20020825:102'
    Segmenttype: Name and address                  |Tag :NAD   |Data: +BY+5412345000013::9'
    Segmenttype: Reference                         |Tag :RFF   |Data: +VA:87765432'
    Segmenttype: Contact information               |Tag :CTA   |Data: +OC+:P FORGET'
    Segmenttype: Communication contact             |Tag :COM   |Data: +0044715632478:TE'

To unmarshal the various EDIFACT messages look at the messages folder. You can use the Unmarshal* function and pass in the segments provided by the parser. Actually only the ORDERS message is implemented. Unfortunately only a small part of it. See details below.

Messages

ORDERS

The ORDERS message was implemented with the help of the following document : https://service.unece.org/trade/untdid/d11a/trmd/orders_c.htm The Suported segments from the ORDERS message can be found in the "segments" folder under "messages/order/".

And below segment groups are supported:

HEADER SECTION
Segment group 1
Segment group 2
Segment group 3
Segment group 5
Segment group 7
Segment group 25
Segment group 29
Segment group 30
Segment group 33
Segment group 57
SUMMARY SECTION
Segment group 63

Supporting additional segments or segment groups should be straight forward to implement in the available code base.

Usage

application

  • make build

  • example/gofact -help

    Usage of ./gofact:
      -message string
            edifact message file path
      -psegments
            print segments generated by the parser
      -ptokens
            print tokens generated by the lexer
      -subset
            supportet subset : eancom, edifact (default)
  • example parsing

    example/gofact -message ../edi_messages/eancom_ord.edi -subset eancom -psegments

library

  1. import library
    import "github.com/jacob-elektronik/gofact/parser"
  2. initialize parser
    p := parser.NewParser(*message, "eancom")
    err := p.ParseEdiFactMessageConcurrent()
    // unmarshal and edifact order message
    order := order.UnmarshalOrder(p.Segments)

testing

  • run test
    make test
  • show test coverage
    make show_testcover
