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.
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.
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.
While our development team is making excellent progress towards a beta of the XSLT processor for Intel SOA Expressway (http://www3.intel.com/cd/software/products/asmo-na/eng/373233.htm), I will continue looking at new features in XSLT 2.0. In this post, I’ll look at the only other major new type in the language, the sequence.
Last April at HIMSS in Chicago, Intel participated in the IHE showcase, which is essentially a huge "plug fest" for healthcare vendors promoting interoperability in healthcare. Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information. The IHE process delivers a set of interoperability "profiles", which are comprised of established standards to address specific clinical use cases.
"Time is money". That old saying is as relevant as ever in the modern financial service markets. Complex, real-time, and algorithmic trading are constantly pushing the envelope of that phase.
The way SOA implementations are being implemented today, there's a new demand for middleware component that provides necessary services such as high-speed message level parsing, validation, transformation and translation to different message formats, message-level routing, service management, governance and control. Intel’s high-performance software solution is uniquely positioned to offer variety of such services critical in implementing true SOA.
