Resend and Replay HL7 messages

Our team uses the HL7 to HL7 DFDL pattern and HL7DFDL nodes for integrating with Clinical applications. Currently, this pattern does have an option to resend and replay messages.

    Idea Review. As part of our policy for regularly reassessing aged ideas we have recently discussed this enhancement request again. With just a single vote since this idea's creation in 2017, unfortunately on this occasion it has been decided that we won't be taking this idea further forward as a business priority. As mentioned in the last review comment, the basic building blocks for the design being requested are already present in the ACH pattern, so creating a time-based replay and sequencing behaviour in the transformation flow would be possible (admittedly with more effort on the part of the user).

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this RFE and apologies for the length of time it has been in Submitted status. In general although it is possible to achieve this use case already with the product capabilities for pubishing monitoring events to MQ, and the IIB/ACE Record & Replay feature, we appreciate that you would like some of these behaviours baked in to the pattern solution. In particular the HL7 to HL7 DFDL pattern utilises MQ queues for separating the inbound (Receiver) and outbound (Sender) flows usage of TCP sockets for the support of MLLP, from the use of MQ as a helpful persistent asynchronous transport.. so the basic building blocks are in place such that the middle transformation flow could be instrumented to utilise record and replay. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
