The Fosstrak TDT Engine offers and easy way to convert between different EPC representations.
An EPC identifier may be expressed in a number of representations or encodings, such as BINARY, tag-encoding URI, pure-identity URI, legacy formats. The Fosstrak Tag Data Translation (TDT) Engine provides flexible translation (encoding/decoding) between these different representations of an EPC. For example, our TDT Engine allows a binary string to be converted into a URI representation or vice versa.
The Fosstrak TDT Engine makes use of the XML schema and instance files defined in EPCglobal Tag Data Translation v1.0 and represents a convenient way for Java developers to integrate TDT functionality into their software.
