Yesterday the Microsoft team released a new tech preview of the ESB Guidance 2.0 package.
What’s new? I’ll be installing this today so we’ll see what “LDAP Resolver” and “SMTP Adapter Provider” actually are. Looks like some good modifications to the itinerary design experience as well. The biggest aesthetic change is the removal of the dependency on Dundas charting (for the Exception Management Portal) and a long-overdue move to Microsoft Chart Controls.
As you’d expect with any CTP (and as I’ve learned by digging into CTP1 for my BizTalk 2009 book), don’t expect much in the way of documentation yet. There ARE updated samples, but it’s up to you to dissect the components and discover the relationships between them.
