Full Name: HL7 Conformance Testing with Message Maker

The Message Maker Project is a collaboration effort between the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Health Level 7 (HL7) Standards Consortium. NIST is directing their efforts towards the development of a conformance-testing tool that automatically generates test messages for HL7 message profile specifications. The messages can be used to test systems for conformance. A prototype of Message Maker is available at this site. All NIST produced source code, documents, and associated products are in the public domain. Message Maker is a work-in-progress, as such, not all planned functionality is implemented; feedback on its design, feature set, and usefulness is welcomed.

Purpose: Supports conformance testing.
