Donkey has batching and attachment handler interfaces built-in. Batch adaptors can intercept large files and split them up while streaming (without reading the whole file in memory at once).

Attachment handlers can intercept a message before it's dispatched to a channel, extract attachment data (whatever that may be, an encoded PDF in an HL7 message, DICOM image slices, etc.), and store it separately so that it is not included during normal message processing. It even automatically breaks the attachment into chunks for efficient database storage. The attachment can then be retrieved and reattached to the message when you need it to be.

You can checkout the source code for only Donkey if you want.

Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.
