Using PI with the Xi interface

I am trying to connect our product to PI over Express Interface (Xi).  When PI is the server, I can simply wrap the OPC servers with the Xi wrapper that's supplied from the Xi site.  (http://expressinterface.com/)  However, I have not figured out a good way to use Xi when Pi is an OPC client.  There is no off the shelf client wrapper that I can find.  Has anyone done this and know a good solution?

 

Also, are there any plans for PI to support Xi natively?  I found a reference that OSIsoft was one of the developers of the Xi standard.  (http://www.emersonprocessxperts.com/mt/mt-search.cgi?blog_id=2&tag=Express%20Interface&limit=500)

 

Thanks for any ideas or solutions,

 

Paul
