4.0.3

December 14, 2019

Compatibility

HL7 EDI Connector v4.0.3 is compatible with the following:

Application/Service Version

Mule

4.1.0 and later

Anypoint Studio

7.1.0 and later

HL7

v2.1, v2.2, v2.3.1, v2.3, v2.4, v2.5, v2.5.1, v2.6, 2.7, 2.7.1, 2.8, 2.8.1

Fixed Issues

  • Corrected the handling of eventMessageMap paths with a leading '/' character, as it was not found on the classpath. (SE-13668)

  • Corrected the MSH handling for versions 2.2 and 2.3 which resulted in the error: "com.mulesoft.flatfile.lexical.LexicalException: No message structure found in eventMessageMap for message null/null". (SE-13668)

  • All standard schemas now use a minimum length of 0 for simple values, rather than 1. Using a 1 caused empty strings to be padded with a blank when written to the output. (SE-12757)

  • Corrected the ORU_R01 schema structure definition in version 2.4, as this was unusable due to repeated definitions. (SE-11806) The hl7-simplify-4.0.2.jar execution was not working properly. (SE-14016)

Known Issues

Schemas are present for message structures for older versions (up to and including 2.3.1) that are not used in HL7. HL7 reuses message structures for different event types. For example, there is no ADT_A08 message structure because this is a combination of an ADT message type for A08 event reuses the ADT_A01 message structures. This issue is considered of low severity because it does not result in any errors in either sending or receiving data, but may mislead the user to set an incorrect message structure name for the MSH.9/MSG.3 "message structure" field of the header. It is left as a known issue so as to avoid breaking existing applications.

4.0.2

December 14, 2018

Compatibility

HL7 EDI Connector v4.0.2 is compatible with the following:

Application/Service Version

Mule

4.1.0 and later

Fixed Issues

  • Corrected DataSense metadata. Removed the "Heading" level shown in DataSense that was not actually used in data.

  • Added support for all standard escape sequences. However escape sequences that change character encoding are not supported.

  • Fixed writing a String value to a timestamp field. By default this expects XMLGregorianCalendar, but a correctly formatted String is also supported.

  • Corrected handling of MSH-18 character encoding field, allowing either a simple String or a list of Strings, depending on the schema version.
