We need to come up with a slate of articles to publish, or
over holidays (at least 2018-12-17 to 2019-01-02) to deal with outage.
The goal is for these articles to be ready to go and not require human
intervention over as much of that period as possible.
Does anyone have a proposal for what we do for this period?
I was going to propose another dex article:
"Decentralized Business Document Exchange with OpenAS2"
The goal is to walk the reader through installing the openas2 Fedora
package, creating certs for two test endpoints with Java keytool,
and sending a test Purchase Order and Invoice (ANSI X12 format for
the example, but stressing that AS2 is format agnostic), while
explaining the importance of the MDN for business documents
(non-repudiation). (Otherwise, why not just use https?)
The article will *not* cover integrating EDI into business
accounting/operations software. Just using openas2 for transport.
I should be able to start actually writing it Dec 12.
Will that help?
