I am new to Dell Boomi. If anyone has worked on HL7 them please help.It would be better if you can provide step by step solution. It would be easier for me to understand it.
You can use any protocol , the preferred way is to use MLLP along with a trading partner. This is not a boomi specific functionality and a industry standard. It should be treat as another EDI process. For more documentation: https://community.boomi.com/search.jspa?q=hl7
As Thameem mentioned, using the Trading Partner component with MLLP as the mode of communication is the best option when you are working with use-cases involving HL7. I just wanted to add some things that helped me in this context.
1. Gain a better understanding (if not familiar already) of the HL7 message types in general, and how they can be included in a process. Common HL7 Message Types has some sample messages you can use to create a profile as described in the 'HL7 version information' section of EDI profile'sOptions tab
2. Make sure you have the connection configuration as expected. It is important to confirm that the port is available for the MLLP server to listen on. You may also use external applications like Interface explorer (Laconic Designs) or Mirth Connect (Home | Mirth Corporation) along with the Boomi connectors to observe client-server communication.
3. Establishing the connection between the client and the server and keeping it consistent is the tricky part. So my suggestion is to test with the simplest form of data, without much transformation until this is achieved. Once you are all set, it will be easier to experiment.
I haven't done much in terms of this experimenting yet, but hope these help you get started.
DO you have any idea how to implement MLLP client/server connector with trading partner ? How to get IP address of the MLLP server and port number?
Sorry that it took me a few days to get back to you on this. I've added some screenshots explaining the setup of very simple MLLP Client and Server processes, and what their dependencies are. This is a lengthy post, so please bear with me

Well, that was it. Hope this helps!
