More on Microsoft’s ESB Guidance

June 28, 2007


Marty Wasznicky of the BizTalk product team is back from the blogging dead and talking about Microsoft’s ESB Guidance. The last time this character posted on the blog was immediately after he and I taught a brutal BizTalk “commando” class in 2005. Keep an eye on him since he’s the primary architect behind the ESB […]

New “BizTalk Performance” Blog To Check Out

June 27, 2007


I’m happy to see Rob starting a “BizTalk Performance” blog, and have high hopes that this doesn’t fall into the BizTalk team dust bin of dead blogs. Subscribe to both of Rob’s blogs (personal BizTalk thoughts here and reference-oriented content here). You’ll find that he’s already put some good content down around planning performance labs. […]

BizTalk BAM Data Archiving Explained

June 22, 2007


I’ll be honest. I can’t say that I’ve ever fully understood all the nuances of the BizTalk BAM infrastructure layer. Sure, I have the basics down, but I often found myself turned around when talking about some of the movement between the BAM databases (specifically, archiving). Something in Darren’s Professional BizTalk Server 2006 book got […]

Go Buy The Book “Professional BizTalk Server 2006″

June 21, 2007


I recently purchased a copy of Darren Jefford’s new Professional BizTalk Server 2006 book and am quite pleased with the material. I had the pleasure of checking this book out during its construction, and must admit, my first thought during that review was “wow, this is great … but it seems to be a bit […]

Delayed Validation of Web Service Input to BizTalk

June 19, 2007


Back on the old blog, I posted about creating web services for BizTalk that accepted generic XML. In one of my current projects, a similar scenario came up. We have a WSDL that we must conform to, but wanted to accept generic content and validate AFTER the message reaches BizTalk. Our SAP system will publish […]

BizTalk Production Application Deployment Issues Encountered

June 18, 2007


This past weekend our company did it’s first significant BizTalk application deployment into a production environment. I encountered a few issues along the way, and I thought I’d list the problem and resolution. In order of annoyance to me (from least to greatest): Transport does not have read/write privileges for receive location … We had […]

Summer Reading List

June 11, 2007


I’m fortunate that my company does a summer shutdown during the July 4th week. I plan on taking a day or so of that “free” time off to learn a new technology or go deeper in something that I’ve only touched at a cursory level. I’ve recently read a few books (below) that were quite […]

BizTalk Handling of Exceptions in One-Way Web Services

June 11, 2007


I’m currently working on the design of the “fan out” process from our ERP system (SAP) and we’ve had lots of discussions around asynchronous services and exception handling. The pattern we’ve started with is that BizTalk receives the message from SAP and fans it out using one-way send ports (and web services) to each interested […]
