This page provides resources for Eskom's specialised version of XMLVend. This specialised version of XMLVend must be implemented by all vendors who are authorized to sell prepayment electricity for Eskom.
The generic version of XMLVend is not used by Eskom but interested parties can find the generic version on the NRS web site at: http://nrs.eskom.co.za/xmlvend/
XMLVend specifications documents
are three schemas used in the Eskom design for
XMLVend, namely the Base
domain and Revenue
domain. The design can either be done by
using the three separate domain (XSD) files or the
single WSDL file.

Eskom specialised test suite
The Test Suite comprises three independent components; the Server module, the Client module and the Message interceptor module. When testing your design, it is important to also use the message interceptor that will validate the request and response messages.
test suite is used by Eskom to test and validate the
designs for all prospective vendors. This means that
any of the prospective manufacturers can already
perform all the necessary validation tests before
submitting a solution to Eskom for testing.
