The PCEHR JConnector is an open source reference implementation of a PCEHR System client. The scope of the project includes:

** Providing sample code for connecting a client application to the PCEHR System via the PCEHR B2B Gateway.

**Providing an online forum, where questions about connecting to the PCEHR System can be raised and answered.

**Using feedback to continuously improve the sample code, as well as the general experience of software vendors looking to integrate with the PCEHR System.

The sample code brings to life the technical specifications published by Nehta, by demonstrating how a Clinical Information System (CIS) would interact with the PCEHR System. The sample code will be updated to incorporate future technical specification publications by Nehta.

The PCEHR JConnector project is a Java based implementation, released under the permissive Apache 2.0 open source license. A .NET sample client is also under development.


  • Generation of client stubs based on the Apache CXF Framework
  • Creation of service invocation layer that wraps the raw client stubs
  • Transport Layer Security (TLS) mutual authentication configuration
  • Loosely coupled User Interface based on the Java Swing framework (Can be easily decoupled from the service invocation layer)
  • Basic logging to capture SOAP requests and responses
  • JUnit test suite and test results for key transactions
  • The first iteration of this tool is focused on invoking the PCEHR services. It reads a prepared CDA document from file. Generating the CDAs dynamically to pass into these services will be provided in a later release.
  • Supporting artefacts such as WSDLs, class diagrams, JConnector developer guide, UI input parameters guide, links and references to published specifications, and mapping of PCEHR JConnector to the transactions described in Nehta’s Logical Service Specification (LSS) and Technical Service Specification (TSS) documents.
