BDUF was especially interesting when I heard Peter Provost and Billy Hollis speak on this topic during their presentations at the PnP Summit last year. Both made points that I could definitely relate to. You see the (embarrassing) thing about this post is that I didn’t know what BDUF was, and was living it everyday, but waterfall was supposed to be OK? I never heard anyone say BDUF until I hooked up with .NET a few years ago (I wrote my first line in December of 2003), even having done a few tours ...
Recently during migration BizTalk project from SQL to WCF adapter had some rather confusing moment.

Hello All, Recently I am engaged in an Integration project in which I have to Integrate BizTalk Server 2006 R2 with EMC Solutions product called Smarts Software. This Smarts Software exposes a Java API and a Web Service interface. Initially knowing that it exposes a Web Service I felt relief and it would make my life easy but then talking with the Smarts Software people they told us that the Web Service Interface is very naïve and it does not have all the functionality we need for the Integration. ...
This is the first post in a series to demonstrate how to use the standard MSFT technologies to implement a CRUD data application in Silverlight. This post is beginners stuff - there’s nothing advanced here. Most readers with some experience of Silverlight will learn nothing from this post, but I want to start at the beginning so those of you who are relatively new to Silverlight can see how analogous building such an app in Silverlight is to say building it in ASP.NET, Win Forms or WPF. This app ...
In January and March 2009 I presented to the East Bay .NET and San Francisco Bay .NET user groups respectively on how to build business applications in Silverlight. The theme of the presentations was to show how developing line of business applications in Silverlight is extremely similar to other technologies like Win Forms, WPF or ASP.NET. I demoed how to build a simple CRUD application in Silverlight hitting a SQL Server database over WCF. The building of the application during the presentation ...

I pre-ordered this book by Richard Seroter and eagerly awaited its delivery, but due to work commitments I have not really been able to give it the time it needed. Things are a bit quieter now so I thought I’d bite the bullet and work my way through it. I have to say I rather like the book; it is a good mixture of BizTalk Server 101 and BizTalk Server arcana. For me the book is split in to 3 distinct parts, with Part 1 covering Chapters 1 – 4 and what I would call “Introduction and Background”, Part ...
Recently I surfaced this error while trying to add reference of a WCF Service in Visual Studio 2008 running on Windows 7. Even when the WCF Service was browsed normally, it didn’t expose the Service Description Page that usually shows an implementation sample. I tried removing all code in the service, tried commenting, nothing worked. The ‘Root element is missing’ didn’t give much details on what could be the issue. Every time this error throws up, The “Add Service Reference” operation could not ...

I had to go through several Blogs and spend several hours trying to configure my BizTalk project to use Client Certificate Mapping, SSL, and WsHttp Adapter. These are the steps that were needed to make this combination work: 1. Enable Anonymous Access in IIS for the Web Site 2. Setup Certificate Mapping in IIS 3.Enable "Require SSL" 4. Edit the Web.Config file and make sure that the System.ServiceModel looks like this: <system.serviceModel> <bindings> <wsHttpBinding> <binding ...

I was trying to implement a simple autocomplete behavior on a textbox using JQuery and the JQuery Autocomplete plugin but it wasn’t as simple as I expected. The basic idea was to get the options from a WCF web service as the user typed. The first obstacle was preparing the Service to accept the calls from the plugin. The plugin accepts a url as the data source and invokes it with two parameters (and a timestamp), q is the query and limit the maximum number of results to return, so I created the following ...
Yesterday I've tried to reproduce the scenario 'Configuring a Static Port to Behave as a Dynamic Port' from the excellent MSDN article 'Consuming and Hosting WCF Services with Custom Bindings in BizTalk Server' but with a twist: instead of writing the BTS.OutboundTransportLocation context property inside a custom pipeline component I've tried doing this from inside orchestration. It didn't work. I had to do it differently. Let me explain... If you manually promote a custom value for the BTS.OutboundTransportLocation ...

For anyone interested here are some Silverlight Project Samples (databinding, animation, hello world, plus wcf webservice): http://cid-8e2654c5f01e6069... Overall I had a pretty good time and it sounds like I projected pretty good. Some people said they could hear me in the hallway that's a good sign. I'll just keep on trying to project just as good each time. It was a pretty long weekend, but well worth meeting the people I did. I met so many and hung out ...
I’ve had a lot of folks ask me about Geneva lately. This post provides a quick summary of the different places I’ve looked to find out more about The Geneva Framework and Microsoft’s story for a building claims-based WCF services. Please let me know if you have more suggestions for good content on the topic. I’m a big fan of Michele Bustamante’s writing style, so you notice there are a couple articles here from her.

How often you should search for the various information? Most likely it occurs every day. It is important, that an information search problem not trivial. Also the information can is in various sources - in files, in e-mail messages, in documents etc. Not the secret, that most part of an information is in a network - local and global. Windows Search which allows to search easily and conveniently on the basis of indexes has been developed in Windows Vista. In Windows 7 a theme of search has found ...
I started having a think about how you could make BizTalk Server 2009 RESTful as I had been asked to give it some thought. Whilst thinking about it and wondering how I could let any subscription know the message it was subscribing to was supposed to be GET, DELETE, PUT or whatever I started creating some basic plumbing to give me something to test. To this end I started taking a look at the new WCF SQL Adapter in the BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0. This new adapter is built using the WCF LOB Adapter SDK ...

[Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/E... The sample BizTalk application provided with the BizTalk Cache Adapter on CodePlex illustrates three approaches for using the cache: Simple Messaging – routes all messages configured for caching to the cache adapter, and sends cache-misses on to the service provider; Orchestration – explicitly routes messages to either the cache adapter or service provider in orchestration logic; Complex Messaging – routes messages configured for caching either to ...
[Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/E... In a recent project we had a requirement for a configurable cache, residing on a BizTalk host and storing responses from WCF services which the BizTalk app had brokered. Producing this as a generic cache adapter was the preferred option, but project timescales didn't allow for it – instead I've written the adapter as an open source component which is available on CodePlex: BizTalkCacheAdapter, and which we're now making use of in the project. It's ...
I learnt something new about SOAP adapter today so thought of sharing. I never realised but BizTalk SOAP adapter by default is configured to look into Orchestration proxy code while creating a SOAP request. In other words message natively formed within orchestartion is mapped to the body (SOAP:Body) part by the adapter by using proxy code embedded in the orchestartion assembly. This became obvious when we tried to create a web request using BizTalk WCF adapter which required mapping applied on a ...

Last Saturday (the 23rd of May), I had the privilege of attending DDD South West at Queen’s College in lovely Taunton. The venue was beautiful, the presentations educational and fun, the company convivial and the food plentiful and delicious. I only wish I’d had more sleep and less beer the night before. I had wondered if the presentations would contain a lot of material from DDD7, but as far as I could tell there was no overlap. I attended sessions on the DLR and dynamic languages, jQuery, refactoring, ...
Introduction After a short sojourn with the Visual Studio 2010 Beta, I’m back with the next part. Pop quiz – can you run Visual Studio Team Foundation and Visual Studio Professional without Team Suite? Well some wit told a client you could not – so I spent some of the Bank Holiday proving otherwise – Another article there on setting it up, but in general it was incredibly easy for a server app! Anyway I digress back to the subject at hand – hosting a Silverlight Application in an Azure Application. ...
If you ever need to deploy a WCF service to SharePoint 2007, there's plenty of information about how to do it on the web. Including how to make it work with Integrated Authentication or Forms Authentication. And it's all great and works. However, I had to make the service "run" under the context of a particular web (which was actually a subweb). By this I mean that if I have a root site and a subsite and my WCF service calls SPContext.Current.Web I'd want it to return the subsite, not the root site. ...
I’ve just published the second in a series of WCF/WF 4.0 webcasts on BloggersGuides.net. The second webcasts looks at the Flowchart workflow designer, and how it can be used to implement a simple electronic flight check in scenario. I found the Flowchart workflow designer very easy and intuitive to work with, the flight check in workflow was the first flowchart workflow I have built, and it only took about 15 minutes to get it running. The flowchart designer has improved considerably since the PDC ...

It's an age old adage that on life's journey you always arrive at a fork in the road, and need to decide which path you want to take. At the beginning of 2007 my professional career faced exactly this fate, with the hurt of the looming GEC and the shifting of core skills in many IT departments I was faced with the making a hard decision; continue to seek full time employment or gamble with taking an IT contractor position. My journey however was never about income, stability, or my methods of employment ...

Project Sourcecode: NewsMashup In Part I of this series of articles I discussed the database that lies behind the application. Moving from the backend to the client side, it is now time to discuss the code which accesses the database and returns the data to application. I have a standard class I use when accessing databases. The version I am using here is developed to connect to SQL Server but with some minor changes it would not be difficult to adapt to other databases, and I already have one for ...
