 +===== Purpose =====
 +This [[Enterprise Service Bus]] system allows a Software Developer to generate a FedEx Shipping Label and retrieve the shipping rate and tracking number.
  
 +===== Accounts and End User Experience =====
 +A User of a WorkXpress Application that utilizes the FedEx Enterprise Service Bus functionality will need to go to www.fedex.com and sign up for a FedEx Developer Account. ​ This account will have Fedex API Keys associated with it, for use to generate your test labels. ​ WorkXpress Applications in Development and Testing are setup to send their label requests to Fedex'​s Development/​Sandbox environment.
 +
 +Once the ESB is setup and the WorkXpress Application can generate a label this User will need to go through the Fedex label Certification process the to verify the quality of the label printer. When this certification is past, a new Fedex account will be issued with Production-ready API Keys.  These keys will need to be used in the WorkXpress Application in Production to produce real Fedex labels that will be valid and work for shipping packages.
