Delete a File using a Mirth JavaScript Transformer Channel.

So you have developed an awesome HL7 interface channel using Mirth and you are using a JavaScript Transformer to manipulate some files on the file system. You have managed to read the contents of the file and have processed the relevant data, Great News. However you wish to remove the original file as no one wants to have old pointless processed data files hanging around now do they ? So you have used FileUtil.ReadBytes() to actually open and read the data from the file so what would be the natural method to call to delete this file, FileUtil.Delete() ? NO, How Very Dare You ! This wont work , you will receive a java-script error not pass Go and NOT receive 200 Pounds! What you have to actually do is call straight to the Java io File class and run the file delete call that way. Something along the following lines : var file = Packages.java.io.File("\FILE NAME"«»); file["delete"](); But Why such a Foible ? Because the javascript.Delete() command gets lost between the translation of java-script to java and ’delete’ is a keyword in Rhino and E4X, thus you cant call File.delete() method within Mirth directly. So there you go , its that simple ! If you liked this article and found it use-full please share it below [...]

What is the Cloud

Cloud computing began as a marketing term for technologies that provide computation, software, data access, and storage services that utilize both central remote servers and internet to manage the data and applications. Cloud services require no end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services. One of the major benefits of cloud computing is that cloud customers do not have to raise the capital to purchase, manage, maintain, and scale the physical infrastructure required to handle drastic traffic fluctuations. A real world physical comparison of this concept can be drawn with the national electricity grid, whereby end-users consume power without needing to understand the component services , devices or infrastructure required to provide the service. The most simple and understandable example of cloud applications are  web based email applications such as gmail and windows live mail. You do not need to have a local server to access these applications. All you need to have an internet connection and a local desktop computer and you can start browsing web pages and sending emails. Cloud computing providers deliver applications via the internet, which are accessed from standard internet web browsers or via custom desktop and mobile apps with the business software and data [...]

The Onion Router (TOR) , which allows users to browse the web anonymously, has asked its users to create a bridge with Amazon’s EC2 cloud service to donate bandwidth to the TOR project. People who want get involved in the project to maintain this anonymous routing mechanism can donate some of their allocated space on Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud service to effectively allow the Tor project to branch out and use the computing resources of their accounts. The TOR project allows for anonymous browsing which  has been used by activists to avoid censorship as well as those seeking anonymity for more nefarious reasons. The use of the expanded TOR service will make it increasingly difficult to track traffic transfering ilegal or pirate material. The Tor developers are asking  people to create accounts on the EC2 service in order to establish a network bridge – which will create a vital point of access through which communications are routed. “By setting up a network bridge, users can donate their bandwidth to the Tor network and help improve the safety and speed at which users can access [...]
