DDEX defines two mechanisms to exchange DDEX messages between two business partners. As such it establishes a (reliable) "pipe" to transfer DDEX messages, other XML documents and/or files, including binaries containing, for instance, Releases or Resources.
The entry-level message exchange protocol is based on FTP, the File Transfer Protocol. For parties who wish to implement a more interactive method of exchanging information with their business partners, this standard defines a second message exchange protocol using REST-like web services.
