EDI Validation in .net

Does anyone know of a program or component for .net that will check
incoming x12 EDI documents to make sure they are valid (syntax). There
are a few mappers (Like Altova's Mapforce) that will generator c# code
to translate from EDI to XML (another thing I need to do). But there
is not validation on the EDI file first and if it has an issue, like a
user enters a * in a data field or something, it will not map properly.
Checked on the internet but did not see anything would like something I
can compile right into my software but if I have to go with a stand
alone that is fine also.

thanks is advance!

Biztalk 2004 can do the sort of validation you're looking for. Though
it is definately a stand-alone product, the development environment is
now integrated with Visual Studio .NET. That said, it may be overkill.
I have yet to get past the tutorial successfully, and the installation
and setup is a little daunting.

I don't see why MapForce couldn't do this. If you're using schema
files to do the mapping, as long as your schemas are well defined, I
would expect it to validate as well as map the data. I might be wrong
as I've only had the software about a week now, but what would be the
point of mapping schema to schema?

Hope that helps.

IMHO, Biztalk's EDI capabilities 'out of the box' are extremely limited. We
purchased a product from http://www.covast.com/ which bridges the short
comings. It's been in production with us for 6 months and everyone seems
pretty happy with it. I think it's expensive though.
