Integrating Microsoft Azure BizTalk Services with Salesforce.com

July 14, 2014

2

BizTalk Services is far from the most mature cloud-based integration solution, but it’s viable one for certain scenarios. I haven’t seen a whole lot of demos that show how to send data to SaaS endpoints, so I thought I’d spend some of my weekend trying to make that happen. In this blog post, I’m going […]

TechEd North America Session Recap, Recording Link

June 10, 2013

0

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting New Orleans to present at TechEd North America. My session, Patterns of Cloud Integration, was recorded and is now available on Channel9 for everyone to view. I made the bold (or “reckless”, depending on your perspective) decision to show off as many technology demos as possible so […]

I’ve been hard at work on a new Pluralsight video course and it’s now live and available for viewing. This course, Patterns of Cloud Integration,  takes you through how application and data integration differ when adding cloud endpoints. The course highlights the 4 integration styles/patterns introduced in the excellent Enterprise Integration Patterns book and discusses […]

Using ASP.NET SignalR to Publish Incremental Responses from Scatter-Gather BizTalk Workflow

February 1, 2013

While in Europe last week presenting at the Integration Days event, I showed off some demonstration of cool new technologies working with existing integration tools. One of those demos combined SignalR and BizTalk Server in a novel way. One of the use cases for an integration bus like BizTalk Server is to aggregate data from […]

2012 Year in Review

December 31, 2012

4

2012 was a fun year. I added 50+ blog posts, built Pluralsight courses about Force.com and Amazon Web Services, kept writing regularly for InfoQ.com, and got 2/3 of the way done my graduate degree in Engineering. It was a blast visiting Australia to talk about integration technologies, going to Microsoft Convergence to talk about CRM […]

Exploring REST Capabilities of BizTalk Server 2013 (Part 2: Consuming REST Endpoints)

November 19, 2012

23

In my previous post, I looked at how the BizTalk Server 2013 beta supports the receipt of messages through REST endpoints. In this post, I’ll show off a couple of scenarios for sending BizTalk messages to REST service endpoints. Even though the BizTalk adapter is based on the WCF REST binding, all my demonstrations are […]

Exploring REST Capabilities of BizTalk Server 2013 (Part 1: Exposing REST Endpoints)

November 12, 2012

33

The BizTalk Server 2013 beta is out there now and I thought I’d take a look at one of the key additions to the platform. In this current age of lightweight integration and IFTTT simplicity, one has to wonder where BizTalk will continue to play. That said, a clean support of RESTful services will go […]

This month, I reached out to Jürgen Willis who is Group Program Manager for the Windows Azure team at Microsoft with responsibility for Windows Workflow Foundation and the new Workflow Manager (on-prem and in Windows Azure).

Capabilities and Limitations of “Contract First” Feature in Microsoft Workflow Services 4.5

October 12, 2012

1

I think we’ve moved well past the point of believing that “every service should be a workflow” and other things that I heard when Microsoft was first plugging their Workflow Foundation. However, there still seem to be many cases where executing a visually modeled workflow is useful. Specifically, they are very helpful when you have […]
