For the past 7 weeks I worked on my first Proof-Of-Concept (POC) for a financial system corporation. The initial scope of the work revolved around using SOA Expressway primarily as rapid & high performance secure integration product.
XSLT 2.0: Regular expressions
One of the weaknesses in XSLT 1.0 was the very simple set of string manipulation features. In comparison to many popular programming languages, the string functions lacked one very powerful feature, regular expressions. Intel SOA Expressway actually offers this functionality with extension functions for our customer base. In XSLT 2.0, the XSLT working group plugged this hole for everyone in a couple of ways that we’ll look at in this post.
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.
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.
