HL7 over HTTP
This is the homepage for the HL7 over HTTP initiative. Welcome!
HL7 over HTTP is a new transport mechanism aimed at replacing the
traditional HL7 v2 Mininal Lower Layer Protocol (MLLP) transport
with a modern, standards-based approach. We believe that MLLP should
be retired completely, and we are working to make that a reality.
This site has two useful sections:
The Specification itself.
We are soliciting opinions and comments on this specification, so
please get in touch.
A Java based API for implementing
HL7 over HTTP in your application. The Java based API can be
embedded in applications that
do use HAPI,
and in applications that
don't otherwise use HAPI.
Our Java API is Apache licensed, so it is free for
use in all kinds of software, including commercial software!
