BizTalk Ordered Delivery Gotcha

September 28, 2007


One of my colleagues recently lost a bit of work because of a tricky “gotcha” with messages going through an ordered delivery channel in BizTalk Server.

My BizTalk Code Review Checklist

September 4, 2007


I recently put together a BizTalk Code Review checklist for our development teams, and thought I’d share the results.
