  • The Enterprise Architect class model (an eap-file): EA-model feed and climat control.eap.
  • The data model specifications: Data Model Specification.pdf.
  • Xml scheme definition data types standard messages: DataTypes.xsd.
  • Xml scheme definition of the standard messages to be exchanged: ProductionEvents.xsd.
  • Code list: Code list standard interface.zip.
  • Implementation guide line webservice: Implementation guide WS data exchange pigs and poultry.pdf
  • Xml scheme definition for the webservice: WS_getProductionData.xsd.
  • Xml scheme definition data types for the webservice: WS_DataTypes.xsd.
