Abstract

The core idea of this invention is to provide an event processing engine which takes two inputs : - an XPath statement - a collection of XML based events. The output of the event processing engine is based on the nature of the XPath statement and can be one of the following : - a group of events that match a boolean expression in the XPath statement (such as the collection of events having a certain severity) - a number which is computed by examining a property of each event (such as the total number of events that are currently in the "open" state) - a string which contains an attribute from one of the events in the entire set (such as the date of the most recent event)
