Routing ASTM, DICOM, EDIFACT, HL7, X12, and XML Documents
InterSystems IRIS enables you to process EDI and other messages as virtual documents. A virtual document is a kind of message that InterSystems IRIS parses only partially. This kind of message has the standard production message header and the standard message properties such as ID, Priority, and SessionId. The data in the message, however, is not available as message properties; instead it is stored directly in an internal-use global, for greater processing speed.
InterSystems provides tools so that you can access values in virtual documents, for use in data transformations, business rules, and searching and filtering messages.
