[edit] Classification Update File (CUF)

The classification update file contains the results of the changes to the classification by move, split and join operations between an old release and its successor release.

They are one among several files (RUF, TUF, SDF, CUF) to enable eCl@ss users to update their product data to a new release in a semi-automatic way. All of these files can be found here.

The main purpose is to update classification relations for already classified products, if the classification structure has changed.

XML Schema 1.0 (Release 7.0) is here.

XML Schema 2.0 (Release 8.0) is here.
