WSO2 to Present Technical Webinar on Capabilities of WSO2 ESB 4.6

WSO2 webinar on March 14, examines how IT professionals can optimize content awareness, content-based routing and streaming transformation using the WSO2 ESB 4.6 Palo Alto, CA – March 5, 2013 – Today, an enterprise service bus (ESB) is critical for organizations implementing service-oriented architecture (SOA) best practices and solving SOA anti-patterns of isolation, uniqueness and duplication. WSO2 will present a technical webinar to discuss how WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus 4.6 helps IT professionals to optimize and extend their SOA implementations through expanded capabilities, superior performance, and a small footprint measured in megabytes. The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Advantage Webinar – How the WSO2 ESB outperforms Major Open Source ESB Vendors,” will run Thursday, March 14, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST. For more information, visit The WSO2 ESB Advantage The webinar will review key features and core capabilities of WSO2 ESB. The session will then explore how version 4.6 significantly improves performance over previous versions and performs better than other comparative ESBs in most scenarios. Additionally, it will discuss new enhancements, including making Pass Through Transport (PTT) the default transport, improving the mediation engine to be content-aware, focusing on XPath support for content-based routing, and a significantly improved XSLT capability called “Fast XSLT” to provide faster streaming transformation when used with the PTT. Webinar topics will include:
  • A review of PTT, including the main differences between PTT and NHTTP.
  • How PTT was enhanced to work as the default Transport layer.
  • Understanding streaming XPath and how it affects performance.
  • How XPath supports a partial compilation strategy to target specific scenarios.
  • An evaluation of FAST XSLT, highlighting how developers can easily switch FAST XSLT with conventional XSLT and under which scenarios it works best.
  • How the ESB performance round 6.5 was organized and the test results were analyzed.
