      This is the same tool that the BizTalk team uses internally to generate the schemas that ship with Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 v2.0. The tool takes the HL7 message definition from the database that HL7 publishes on their web site and generates schemas in a format that the BizTalk HL7 parser can understand. These schemas are used by the parser in the process of translating from the flat file format of HL7 v2.x to XML.
      The HL7 message definitions are stored in a Microsoft Access database and include definitions for all the approved versions (2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.3.1, 2.4 and 2.5). The HL7 message definition database will not ship with the Accelerator as it is part of the HL7 standard and has to be acquired separately from the HL7 standards organization.
      By customizing the database and the generated schema namespace, you will be able to create your own library of message definitions for your own integration purposes or for versions of HL7 that we do not include in the Accelerator for HL7.
      The Schema Generation Tool also comes with full source code. That way it can be adapted to generate the schemas from *any* repository or from tools such as the HL7 Messaging Workbench.

      The objective of the Schema Generation Tool is to make it easier to manage libraries of HL7 message definitions by working at the model level instead of dealing with schema customization. Every time you need to generate a custom message or segment, you can modify the repository (or a copy of it) and generate new schemas.
