camel-mllp-kafka-connector source configuration

Connector description: Communicate with external systems using the MLLP protocol.

When using camel-mllp-kafka-connector as source make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for the connector:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel.kafkaconnector</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-mllp-kafka-connector</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel Kafka connector version -->
</dependency>

To use this Source connector in Kafka connect you’ll need to set the following connector.class

connector.class=org.apache.camel.kafkaconnector.mllp.CamelMllpSourceConnector

The camel-mllp source connector supports 30 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Required Priority

camel.source.path.hostname

Hostname or IP for connection for the TCP connection. The default value is null, which means any local IP address

null

true

HIGH

camel.source.path.port

Port number for the TCP connection

null

true

HIGH

camel.source.endpoint.autoAck

Enable/Disable the automatic generation of a MLLP Acknowledgement MLLP Consumers only

true

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bufferWrites

Enable/Disable the buffering of HL7 payloads before writing to the socket.

false

false

LOW

camel.source.endpoint.hl7Headers

Enable/Disable the automatic generation of message headers from the HL7 Message MLLP Consumers only

true

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.requireEndOfData

Enable/Disable strict compliance to the MLLP standard. The MLLP standard specifies START_OF_BLOCKhl7 payloadEND_OF_BLOCKEND_OF_DATA, however, some systems do not send the final END_OF_DATA byte. This setting controls whether or not the final END_OF_DATA byte is required or optional.

true

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.stringPayload

Enable/Disable converting the payload to a String. If enabled, HL7 Payloads received from external systems will be validated converted to a String. If the charsetName property is set, that character set will be used for the conversion. If the charsetName property is not set, the value of MSH-18 will be used to determine th appropriate character set. If MSH-18 is not set, then the default ISO-8859-1 character set will be use.

true

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.validatePayload

Enable/Disable the validation of HL7 Payloads If enabled, HL7 Payloads received from external systems will be validated (see Hl7Util.generateInvalidPayloadExceptionMessage for details on the validation). If and invalid payload is detected, a MllpInvalidMessageException (for consumers) or a MllpInvalidAcknowledgementException will be thrown.

false

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bridgeErrorHandler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to receive incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. If disabled, the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions by logging them at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

true

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.exceptionHandler

To let the consumer use a custom ExceptionHandler. Notice if the option bridgeErrorHandler is enabled then this option is not in use. By default the consumer will deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

null

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.exchangePattern

Sets the exchange pattern when the consumer creates an exchange. One of: [InOnly] [InOut] [InOptionalOut]

"InOut"

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.charsetName

Set the CamelCharsetName property on the exchange

null

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.backlog

The maximum queue length for incoming connection indications (a request to connect) is set to the backlog parameter. If a connection indication arrives when the queue is full, the connection is refused.

"5"

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.lenientBind

TCP Server Only - Allow the endpoint to start before the TCP ServerSocket is bound. In some environments, it may be desirable to allow the endpoint to start before the TCP ServerSocket is bound.

false

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.maxConcurrentConsumers

The maximum number of concurrent MLLP Consumer connections that will be allowed. If a new connection is received and the maximum is number are already established, the new connection will be reset immediately.

5

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.receiveBufferSize

Sets the SO_RCVBUF option to the specified value (in bytes)

"8192"

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.reuseAddress

Enable/disable the SO_REUSEADDR socket option.

"false"

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.sendBufferSize

Sets the SO_SNDBUF option to the specified value (in bytes)

"8192"

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.acceptTimeout

Timeout (in milliseconds) while waiting for a TCP connection TCP Server Only

60000

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bindRetryInterval

TCP Server Only - The number of milliseconds to wait between bind attempts

5000

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.bindTimeout

TCP Server Only - The number of milliseconds to retry binding to a server port

30000

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.idleTimeout

The approximate idle time allowed before the Client TCP Connection will be reset. A null value or a value less than or equal to zero will disable the idle timeout.

null

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.maxReceiveTimeouts

The maximum number of timeouts (specified by receiveTimeout) allowed before the TCP Connection will be reset.

null

false

LOW

camel.source.endpoint.readTimeout

The SO_TIMEOUT value (in milliseconds) used after the start of an MLLP frame has been received

5000

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.receiveTimeout

The SO_TIMEOUT value (in milliseconds) used when waiting for the start of an MLLP frame

15000

false

MEDIUM

camel.component.mllp.bridgeErrorHandler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

false

MEDIUM

camel.component.mllp.autowiredEnabled

Whether autowiring is enabled. This is used for automatic autowiring options (the option must be marked as autowired) by looking up in the registry to find if there is a single instance of matching type, which then gets configured on the component. This can be used for automatic configuring JDBC data sources, JMS connection factories, AWS Clients, etc.

true

false

MEDIUM

camel.component.mllp.defaultCharset

Set the default character set to use for byte to/from String conversions.

"ISO-8859-1"

false

MEDIUM

camel.component.mllp.logPhi

Set the component to log PHI data.

"true"

false

MEDIUM

camel.component.mllp.logPhiMaxBytes

Set the maximum number of bytes of PHI that will be logged in a log entry.

"5120"

false

MEDIUM
