FTP uploads validation with Intel® SOA Expressway

If you are a web services developer and you build a new SOA system, you probably choose HTTP as a transport. However, sometimes you should support legacy systems that use other protocols for information exchange, for example, FTP. There are several technical nuances to be addressed in this case.

    1. If client sends data over HTTP, you may analyze it and reply with error code if it’s incorrect. If client uploads data by FTP, how will you notify him that you can’t accept it?

Authenticating signing certificates from XML Digital Signatures with Intel® SOA Expressway

Okay, this is my first post and I want to jump straight in with a neat little method of authentication which is often used when Intel® SOA Expressway is deployed as a Service Gateway. It also gives you the ability to be agnostic to whether you’re dealing with SOAP or REST XML patterns in your messaging.

Generally in these blogs I’m going to assume a little bit of familiarity with Intel® SOA Expressway and Intel® Services Designer but if you’re curious to know more or a noob then drop me a comment and I’ll fill you in on the extra detail.

Practical Application of Data Convergence

A typical Healthcare Information Exchange (HIE) accepts data from an array of disparate sources. Often the data it accepts is semantically and syntactically altered by a providing system to satisfy interfacing requirements. However, there are also cases where data from different sources need to be properly merged before reaching the HIE's interface.

SAML 2.0 Token Bridging with Intel® SOA Expressway

One of the cool features of Intel® SOA Expressway is its ability to easily handle token bridging with just a few clicks. What is token bridging you ask? With the increased need for Enterprises to talk outside their perimeter to other Enterprises or cloud services, we need an easy way to morph message level credentials into the proper form as they move across the dynamic perimeter of the Enterprise.

Using SOA Expressway for Handling Kerberos in a B2B Environment

So a project manager walks up to you and tells you, “Hey, we just bought a company that creates purchasing order software. The PO system uses a Linux based implementation of Oracle Access Manager (OAM). We need to integrate this technology’s authentication mechanism with our implementation of Kerberos and Microsoft Active Directory. Unfortunately, their PO system doesn’t support any of the Windows Integrated Authentication solutions. We aren’t even sure if the system can handle SPNEGO. While OAM may handle SAML assertions, it definitely can’t deal with Kerberos tokens.

Introducing...Concurrent Collections for distributed memory systems (distCnC)

Intel has just released Intel® Concurrent Collections for C++ update 0.5. One of the interesting features in this update is an optional extension/plugin to the “normal” runtime system that allows the CnC graph to be executed on distributed memory systems. This article shows you how to enable your CnC program to run on a distributed memory system.
