XSLT 2.0 from Intel on the way

Is Intel still interested in developing XML and XSLT products? After the discontinuation of the Intel XML Software Suite earlier this year, many seem to have concluded that Intel has left the game for good. In fact, in a recent XML mailing list discussion about slow adoption of XSLT 2.0 in browsers, Intel was cited as an example of an XSLT vendor that has left the market.

Well, we really haven’t. At the time, we announced that the Intel SOA Expressway product would become the single solution for XML and service oriented architecture (SOA) needs. (See this page on the Intel website: /en-us/articles/intel-xml-software-products) The functionality of the XML Software Suite has been wrapped into SOA Expressway, so although we no longer have a standalone library product, the capabilities and performance of those libraries continue to power the XML processing needs of SOA applications.

As part of the continuing evolution of SOA Expressway and its XSLT support, we have been busy developing an XSLT 2.0 processor. The development team has made fantastic progress in a short time. In fact, our processor is approaching beta level and will be available in beta form when ready.

Is there interest in another standalone XSLT 2.0 processor? Perhaps, but Intel believes there’s more value for now in tightly integrating this and other XML features into Intel SOA Expressway. Stay tuned for more about our XSLT 2.0 progress!
