It’s been about a year and half since we first released Intel® SOA Expressway for Healthcare, which is a purpose-built, easy-to-deploy integration appliance for connecting islands of information together to enable a secure, high-performance, best-of-breed health information infrastructure. We have now begun shipping release 2.2, which contains a number of new feature enhancements.
I've got a great wife. For my birthday she got me a copy of the newly updated Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd ed. by Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest, and Stein. (Amazon.com says this book dropped last week, but, when I checked as I wrote this, the MIT Press site says I shouldn't even be able to have a copy in the USA or Canada.)
Flipping through the pages, I noticed Chapter 27, Multithreaded Algorithms. That's new.
As conformance testing and fixing progresses for the Intel SOA Expressway XSLT 2.0 processor, I’ll continue examining new XSLT 2.0 features. In my previous post, I talked a bit about grouping, which puts items from a sequence into groups by key value or by relative position. With the right input, that might also sort the sequence, but typically that won’t be the result. So in this post I’ll talk about a close relative, sorting.
Hello Parallel Programers & Intel Software Partners, I'm Aaron Tersteeg

Many Windows developers stayed in Windows XP instead of upgrading their developer workstations to Windows Vista. Windows Vista introduced some compatibility problems when installing certain applications. Now, Windows 7 is round the corner and many developer workstations are going to move to this new Windows version. Windows 7 has many improvements over Vista. Nonetheless, it is an improved Windows Vista. Therefore, you can face some incompatibilities whilst trying to install the necessary software for a professional development environment.
Event based sampling uses counters on the Intel processors to detect what your software is doing. This is helpful for tuning and improving software performance. Typical hotspot analysis shows you where your software spends most of the execution time, but event based sampling allows you to see not just what sections of your application take the most time but why and what it is doing.
While designing the XSLT 2.0 processor for Intel SOA Expressway, our team had to consider how to implement several important new features in the XSLT 2.0 language. In this post we'll look at one of these new features, grouping.
