Dear All,

I am assigned on a project from my company which will use HL7 to communicate with health care
department using HAPI. It will be exchanging of messages between them, means an XML sender and
an XML receiver.

I want to start the POC as soon as possible and end it. Please help me with some initial pointers from where
to start and how to progress as i know nothing about HL7 except its some protocol.

Did you try searching the web for "hl7 protocol"? When I did I got quite a number of hits. Searching for "hl7 +java" returned a library as well.

Please have a look at following sites

Open Source Tools for HL7

HL7 Tools.

Have a look at Mirth Connect at Mirth Corp which would be more helpful to you.
