What's the purpose of having four input files? #176
Logging this great architecture question that emerged from an agency conversation last week:
Adding my own thoughts to this great question...
One way to strike a balance between agencies that want to run validations/conversions "closer to the metal" and agencies that may not have the resources to do this would be to expose the broker's functionality via API/web service.
This would allow agencies to invoke data validations and/or conversions as needed and get the results back. Other agencies could submit via the website if that works better for them. But everyone is subject to the same set of validations, etc.
Bonus: what about a write API that would handle automated data submission (which could also address user story #151)?
