New Whitepaper on BizTalk + WCF

October 30, 2007


Just finished reading the excellent new whitepaper from Aaron Skonnard (hat tip: Jesus) entitled Windows Communication Foundation Adapters in Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2. Very well written and it provides an exceptionally useful dissection of the BizTalk 2006 R2 usage of WCF. Can’t recommend it enough. That said, I still have yet to entirely “jump […]

Seroter.Add(Child Noah)

October 29, 2007


We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posting for a quick personal note. On Friday night (10/26) at 8:27pm, Noah Donnelly Seroter was born to two very happy parents. You’ll probably see more 2AM blog posts from me in the near future. I wanted to be at the SOA/BPM Conference this week in Redmond, but right […]

Problem With InfoPath 2007 and SharePoint Namespace Handling

October 25, 2007


I was working with some InfoPath 2007 + MOSS 2007 + BizTalk Server 2006 R2 scenarios, and accidentally came across a possible problem with how InfoPath is managing namespaces for promoted columns. Now I suspect the problem is actually “me”, since the scenario I’m outlining below seems to be too big of a problem otherwise. […]

Painful Oracle Connectivity Problems

October 19, 2007


I’ve spent the better part of this week wrestling with Oracle connectivity issues, and figured I’d share a few things I’ve discovered. A recent BizTalk application deployment included an orchestration that does a simple update to an Oracle table. Instead of using the Oracle adapter, I used .NET component and the objects in the System.Data.OracleClient […]

How to Distinguish BizTalk Schema Record Nodes

October 9, 2007


I recently came across a newsgroup post discussing distinguishing fields in an auto-generated SQL Adapter schema, and after a bit of investigation, came up with a way to easily distinguish schema records. Now Jan Eliasen gave a perfectly good response to the newsgroup post, and helpfully pointed to his blog post on how to flip […]

Issue When Serializing BizTalk Auto-Generated Schemas To .NET Objects

October 5, 2007


Yesterday a co-worker of mine was having issues serializing an auto-generated BizTalk schema into a .NET object. We found an obscure fix that solved the problem. In Darren’s Professional BizTalk Server 2006 book, he’s a proponent of working with serializable classes (instead of messages) where possible. In our case, my buddy Prashant was doing some […]

New Microsoft Whitepaper on BizTalk Ordered Delivery

October 3, 2007


Interesting new white paper from Microsoft on maintaining ordered delivery across concurrent orchestrations (read online or download here). Specifically, this paper identifies an architecture where you receive messages in order, stamp them with a sequence number in a receive pipeline, process them through many parallel orchestration instances, and then ensure resequencing prior to final transmission.
