HL7Connect Development Environment
The HL7Connect Development Environment provides tools to assist interface developers and HL7Connect system administrators to analyze HL7 messages, interact with databases, and develop HL7Connect scripts. The following video tutorials will take you through an overview of the scripting concepts within HL7Connect and how it can be used to solve your business problems. These tutorials can also be found in the embedded help file for the HL7Connect Development Environment (click on the Help > Tutorial menu option).
To prototype a script, you need to create a script, and a test case. This tutorial demonstrates prototyping a script and test case that logs the application startup time to a text file in the HL7Connect log directory.
