Batch processing edi 834 files
I am trying to parse a huge EDI 834 file which come in one single line to be split into different messages whenever the segment 'INS' is encountered.
Does anyone have sample javascript code they are willing to share?

Can't you split the string on 'INS'?

Thanks. I did try that. I am probably missing something but it only returns the string before the first encountered 'INS'. I need it to keep looing through the line and return messages each time it encounters 'INS'.

This is the code I have right now:

var line="";
var message="";

if (reader.read() != -1) {
while (line = reader.readLine())
message = line.split("INS");
for (i = 0; i < message.length; i++){
return message[i];

//return message;
return '';

What am I missing here?
Than you again for responding.

I posted this on the public Slack channel. Should provide a good starting point.

I am working on a similar use case and used the script provided on Slack. The channel is taking a lot of time to process just one message and after a while, I see a java heap space error. Any help is appreciated.

Can you show how you are calling/using the script?

I changed the data types to raw and under batch, I have used the script provided by Nick and on the source, I selected process batch. It's a huge file close to 70MB. Any thoughts!

I did something similar for an X12 file. I set "Process Batch" to yes on the summary tab, then configured the "Batch Delimiter" in "Set Data Types".
