The DFASDL is a language based upon XML Schema that can be used to describe data formats and additionally the semantics of it.

It is used by the Tensei-Data project to describe data structures and to derive mappings and transformation functions between different structures automatically.

This repository contains the utils module which provides helpful functions and data types. It depends on the dfasdl-core package.

It is cross build for scala 2.11, 2.12 and 2.13.

Releases are published on bintray and should be synced to jcenter. To use the bintray repository directly just add the appropriate resolver to your sbt configuration:

resolvers += "DFASDL" at "https://dl.bintray.com/wegtam/dfasdl"

The api documentation is published using github pages and is available online at: https://dfasdl.github.io/dfasdl-utils/
