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.
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.
