  • EDI uses multiple standards which can often limit how many devices can be connected to the network. The XML web-text language, for example, does not have strict standardization and that allows for multiple programmers to contribute to the coding.
  • In addition to rigorous standards, EDI could also have too many rigorous standards bodies with too many document formats which can malfunction in the face of cross-compatibility issues, which you will definitely encounter as you continue to apply more standards
  • EDI has a higher price point, which can be a little pricey for new business owners

The following steps define the working of Wireless Application Protocol or WAP Model:

  • The WAP model consists of 3 levels known as Client, Gateway and Origin Server.
  • When a user opens the browser in his/her mobile device and selects a website that he/she wants to view, the mobile device sends the URL encoded request via a network to a WAP gateway using WAP protocol.
  • The request he/she sends via mobile to WAP gateway is called as encoding request.
  • The sent encoding request is translated through WAP gateway and then forwarded in the form of a conventional HTTP URL request over the Internet.
  • When the request reaches a specified Web server, the server processes the request just as it would handle any other request and sends the response back to the mobile device through WAP gateway.
  • Now, the WML file's final response can be seen in the browser of the mobile users.

32. Distinguish between pure and partial EC.

Depending upon the nature of the product being sold through the websites or mobile application ecommerce can be categorized as pure and partial ecommerce. Some businesses can be called pure ecommerce businesses, in which the products they sell are digital such as gift cards, eBooks, music, movies etc. The products are digital, product delivery method is digital, and the selling process is also digital.

On the other hand, some businesses are totally physical and are not on any digital dimensions. In between pure online and pure physical aspects, there is one new dimension that can be called partial ecommerce companies. In such cases the business sells the physical products but uses various digital means for customer service, order processing and payment mechanism- they sell physical goods through an ecommerce site. Partial ecommerce is when a company sell a good through the Internet but the fulfillment of the goodwill need to take place in the “real world”. For example, Amazon.com can be a good example of a partial ecommerce. You can order a phone by going through amazon.com but they will have to deliver it to you physically.
