04...Generate MIF and Related Content

The HL7 V3 Generator is a tool whose primary purpose is to convert a set of domain and design content (frequently expressed in idiosyncratic xml formats, into a set of files expressed in the HL7 Model Interchange Format (MIF); and then to process the MIF files to create a supporting set of artifacts, such as static model schemas, table- and Excel- views of the static models, etc. This section covers the execution of the Generator processes.

04.10...Select configuration

This sub-step has no automated task. It involves establishing the "configuration" parameters for the V3 Generator in InputFiles/configuration.ext. This file is more or less self-documenting. For the purposes of the combined Pub-Gen tool suite, the default properties are just fine, except that "publicationId" should be set to something like "Ballot2010Sep".

04.20...Generate All MIF2

This process starts "from scratch" and builds MIF2 files for all common files (coremif), static models (in HMD or Visio XML form) and dynamic models (pubDb xml) that have been placed in the Generator. Preparation for this process may include:

NOTE: This process is part of 04.30...Generate All MIF and Schemas (below). If your intent is to generate schemas, use that process instead.


04.30...Generate All MIF and Schemas ="FULL Generator run - All MIFs and Schemas"

04.40...Generate Tables and Excel ="Process Excel and Table Views from Generator"

04.80...Distribute Generated Content="Causes Domain content copy for 'active' and 'support' domains to output dirs. (SOMEWHAT REDUNDANT TO -buildDomain)"

04.99...All Generator Targets ="All Generator Targets"

04.30...Generate Schemas

04.40...Generate Tables, Excel

04.50...Post-process Excel

04.60...Process QA on MIF

04.70...Version MIF

04.80 or 05.10...Distribute Generated Content

Distribute generated files to Publishing Process directory structure.
