  • HL7 2.2 - Multiple Message Segments

    I have searched for an answer to this question before posting but have so far found nothing...

    I am attempting to parse a HL7 v2.2 document. The document contains multiple MSH segments (and the related data for each). Can you tell me the best way to parse such a document so that the data for each message is inserted into a database (the parsing is my issue, not the insert).

    I'm guessing I need a transformer with a while loop which splits the document for each message and passes those to a separate channel. This seems like a lot of work for what appears to be an inherent there a more straightforward way than this??

    Thank you

    If I understand your question you are having difficulty reading the XML so that you can then load it into your DB. I have the code that will do just that. It's just uses a standard Java-XML API - Stax for example. Is this your problem? Let me know.

      I don't mean to sound dense, but isn't that what "batch mode" is for?

        r_kerry and javarunner, thank you for your responses.

        i believe r_kerry may be onto something. i have never attempted to use batch mode as, frankly (without disrespect to the development team), sometimes it is difficult to find a good source of documentation on mirth. the app is awesome, but for new guys like me most of my learning is done through the forums.

        i will post back my findings and again really appreciate your input

          Yes, batch mode is what you want and no disrespect taken - docs are missing and we're working hard. Every release of Mirth brings an exponential amount of changes to the docs, so we're always a step behind.
