FHIR JSON support

Talend Data Mapper supports the import of the FHIR specification, with some modifications to improve performance. For more information about the FHIR specification, see

When importing the FHIR specification using the JSON Schema import, some elements are not created in the resulting structures. These elements are ignored to avoid overly complex structures requiring huge amounts of memory. However, these elements can easily be created in the structure after the import. For an example, see Customizing a FHIR structure.

The table below describes the elements ignored at import:
Structure Element Description
All structures extension Elements allowing users to add extensions to the FHIR specification.
All structures contained Array of items derived from the #/definitions/ResourceList reference.
Bundle ResourceList Choice between 146 types, including the container itself.
