FHIR Example - CDI


This is an example application of the camel-fhir component. We'll be using camel-cdi as well for an easy setup.

This example will read HL7V2 patients from a directory and convert them to FHIR dtsu3 patients and upload them to a configured FHIR server.

The example assumes you have a running FHIR server at your disposal. You may use hapi-fhir-jpa-server-example

By default, the example uses http://localhost:8080/hapi-fhir-jpaserver-example/baseDstu3 as the FHIR server URL, DSTU3 as the FHIR version and target/work/fhir/input as the directory to look for HL7V2 patients. However, you can edit the file to override the defaults and provide your own configuration.


You can build this example using:

$ mvn package


You can run this example using:

$ mvn camel:run

When the Camel application runs, you should see a folder created under target/work/fhir/input. Copy the file hl7v2.patient located in the data folder into it. You should see the following output:
