Intel has announced a partnership with open source Enterprise Service Bus vendor MuleSource to integrate Intel's software library into Mule Xpack for Intel XML Software Suite 1.1, a set of instructions and Mule extensions that improve XML processing performance for SOA deployments.
The Mule Xpack provides Mule integration support for the Intel XML Software Suite, which can be used to support three categories of XML operations:
- XML Parsing
- XSLT Transformation
- XPath Evaluations
The Intel XML Software Suite is a library that provides APIs for C++ and Java on Linux and Windows operating systems, for XML processing on servers and application environments. Designed to take advantage of the Intel Core microarchitecture, Intel XML Software Suite provides thread safe and efficient memory utilization, scalable stream-to-stream processing, and large XML file processing capabilities.
