We are mandated to use TCP/IP with des encryption algoritm and HL7 message type data on a project here. HL7 is Health Level 7. "Level Seven" refers to the highest level of the ISO communications model for Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) - the
application level. The application level addresses definition of the data to be exchanged, the timing of the interchange, and the communication of certain errors to the
application. The seventh level supports such functions as security checks, participant identification, availability checks, exchange mechanism negotiations and, most
importantly, data exchange structuring.
We will be implementing this using servlets in Java. We are particularly looking for what interface engines were used, what socket architecture was used, etc.
Any info appreciated,
