Running Standalone of 2.0 on OS X with Java 1.8

MRS 2.0

I am just curious about MRS and if it has support for a RIS with HL7 interface and possibly some DICOM PACS integration. I’d like to install the standalone on a Mac. I tried running it and I get an error, possibly related to my SDK ?

The following error occurred at startup: Failed to read candidate component class: URL [jar:file:/Users/sscotti/Desktop/openmrs-standalone-1.11.6/openmrs-standalone.jar!/org/openmrs/standalone/MainFrame.class]; nested exception is org.springframework.core.NestedIOException: ASM ClassReader failed to parse class file - probably due to a new Java class file version that isn’t supported yet: class path resource [javax/swing/JFrame.class]; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException

Run it with Java 7 — I’m not entirely sure if we fixed the fact that standalone doesn’t work with Java 8…

Alternatively, use the openmrs platform 2.0 standalone which works with java 1.8

Thanks. I downloaded the 2.0 version from SourceForge (without any modules) and installed the legacy module per instructions. That at least gets me into the system. I am just curious at this point, but looking into using MRS at least for development since it has HL7 support. Not sure if you have any plug-in modules for a PACS / DICOM support. Specifically, if you have RIS support I’d like to explore that. I basically want to be able to create patients, create already completed X-ray exams for a patient and then create an order for interpretation. We would generate a report and have MRS send an HL7 message back to another server with the completed report info. I am a little new to most of this, so it is most useful for now just as a way to understand how HL7 works and how to integrate systems.

BTW. I do already have TomCat servers running on my system, although I think that I’ve removed port conflicts. Nice work. The standalone is easy enough to install.

Out of curiosity, how many other open source EMR’s even exist.


@sscotti what do you mean by “MRS”?

Do you have modules for Radiology (a RIS / Radiology Information System). Do you have any modules for integrations of a PACS (Picture Archival Communications System) / DICOM ?

@teleivo @ivange94 do you wanna respond to the above?

Dear @sscotti,

I am contributing to the radiology module which is not officially released and:

Thank you.
