    Description

      Currently when reading HL7 messages using camel-mllp we always have to send back some acknowledgment. Even with autoAck=false there has to be some ack set though MLLP_ACKNOWLEDGEMENT property, or the MllpTcpServerConsumer throws MllpInvalidAcknowledgementException. This is a big limitation when migrating for example from Mirth to camel since Mirth supports that (see pages 330-331 in https://www.nextgen.com/-/media/files/nextgen-connect/nextgen-connect-39-user-guide.pdf).

       

      The camel-mllp component should allow receiving messages without sending back any ack, the same way Mirth does it. I believe it should stop throwing exceptions if autoAck=false, synchronous=false and no ack is being set by any of the MLLP_ACKNOWLEDGEMENT properties. Or we could introduce new property to support this mode.
