Advanced IHE XDS - hands-on and best practices

Number of Days: 2 days, 09:30 to 17:00. Your instructors are available during lunch and after 17:00 for informal discussions about your specific area of interest or applications.

Oct 04/05
(in English)
Info/Registration: www.iheacademy.nl

Keywords: IHE XDS/XDS-I/XCA/XCA-I advanced topics and implementation best practices, document metadata management, hands on testing, implementation and testing tools.

Who Should Attend: This hands-on training course is aimed at those involved with the development, implementation, testing, deployment and support of IHE XDS/XCA based systems and architectures.

What is covered: This training course offers the participants hands-on experience with XDS/XDS-i and XCA/XCA-i based infrastructures. The focus will be on common data flow patterns of such infrastructures, e.g. making an image available via XDS-I/XCA-I or retrieving a document using XDS/XCA. The attendees will be asked to simulate all steps of these data flow patterns, which may require the debugging, mapping, or creation of various data structures. Software tools will be used to support the participant's understanding of the theory. As a secondary goal the training course aims to familiarise the participant with these testing/simulation tools so they can be used after the training course itself.

Speakers: Your tutors will be Robert Breas, René Spronk (both IHE trainers with IHE Academy), Eric Poiseau, Abderrazek Boufahja (both test managers and consultants with IHE Services), and/or others, depending on location of the training course and the language used.

Learning goals: after this training course the attendees will be able to:

  • Troubleshoot XDS/XDS-I/XCA connectivity issues
  • Use XDS/XDS-I/XCA simulation and validation tools
  • Help their organization to determine how they might test and implement XDS/XDS-I/XCA
