Working with X12

HL7 to X12: Performing Larger Conversions

When dealing with extremely large collections of incoming HL7 data, we recommend that you break up the data into individual messages before processing them (to avoid choking your channel). Although this method uses almost the exact same steps as our example code, the channel setup is different. To demonstrate, we are going to approach the same scenario as our previous process, but this time we will create two channels that divide the original script into two separate processes.

Please refer to HL7 to X12: Performing Larger Conversions in the Iguana 6 documentation. The code has not been tested with Iguana 5 but it should be compatible.
