How to execute linux commands
Hi all,

I'm new to Mirth Connect and my first impression - it is a very powerful integration engine and provides a lot of integrated solutions, but I have some problems with decode (later also encode) zip Files. I have found some threads (http://www.mirthproject.org/communit...ead.php?t=3909) but they don't really help me. I need some solution where I can work with scripting or at least I can execute Linux Command like (for example unzip with 7zip). Please, help me to find some solution.

Best regards

If your problem is zipping/Unzipping a file, you can do through Java script. The code is in the link you have.

If your problem is executing a windows command through Mirth, that can be done but will be very tedious to achieve, through this

java.lang.Runtime.getRuntime().exec("system_comman d");

But there will be lot of modifications you need to make in it.

Hi siddharth,

the code from the link above doesn't work for me, probably I do something wrong...

Sooner or later I will need the possibility to execute shell scripts and other cli's commands. It would be helpful and nice from you if you could help me a little bit on this way.

Sorry for my english!

Best regards

Shell Scripts

Here my codesnippet from a Source-Transformer calculating the MD5-Sum on a Ubuntu OS. Mirth 3.3.2. If you search the Forum for getRuntime.exec you'll find a lot of other examples for executing shell commands.


var md5p = java.lang.Runtime.getRuntime().exec('md5sum /.../' + sourceMap.get('originalFilename'));
var md5is = md5p.getInputStream();
var md5content = org.apache.commons.io.IOUtils.toString(md5is);
