  * <p>From an HL7 messaging perspective, an Application is a consumer of a messages. 
  * Once a parser parses an incoming message, the message would normally be forwarded 
  * to an Application of some sort (e.g. a lab system) which would process the 
  * message in some way meaningful for it, and then return a response.</p>  
  * <p>If you are wondering how to integrate HAPI into an existing server application, 
  * this is probably the place.  Create a class that implements Application, then look 
  * at Responder and SimpleServer to see how to get HAPI to listen for messages on 
  * a socket and pass them to your Application.</p>

      * responsibility for it, and must be able to respond appropriately to the sending system.
