Found in HAPI-FHIR 2.1 in

String extractPrefixAndReturnRest(String theString) {
	int offset = 0;
	while (true) {
		if (theString.length() == offset || Character.isDigit(theString.charAt(offset))) {

	String prefix = theString.substring(0, offset);
	myPrefix = ParamPrefixEnum.forValue(prefix);
	if (myPrefix == null) {
		myPrefix = ParamPrefixEnum.forDstu1Value(prefix);

	return theString.substring(offset);

This code fails to accept a quantity parameter with a negative value.
test should include || (theString.charAt(offset) == '-')

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the report! I've confirmed this, and will check in the fix you suggest momentarily.
