Technical Summary EDI-INT applications provide for a secure means of payload document transport. The original intent was for transport of a single EDI or XML document. However, as AS1 [RFC3335], AS2 [RFC4130] and AS3 [RFC4823] matured, other features and application logic were implemented upon EDI-INT standards. Since these features go beyond but do not violate the basic premise of EDI-INT, a means is needed to communicate to trading partners features which are supported by the originating user agent. The EDIINT Features header indicates the capability of the user agent to support the listed feature with its trading partner without out- of-band communication and agreement.
