Kent Brown Keepin It Real
Grrr... Just wasted lots of time on a stupid mistake due to misleading error message. I hate it when that happens. I usually do self-hosting for my WCF services, but on a project I am working on we wanted to host in IIS. I was focused on the security aspects - trying to get Integrated Windows security on a web site, using impersonation to call the service ......

Is it just me getting old, or is it getting harder and harder to keep up these days? From an industry point of view, it seems to me that the waves of new technology keep coming faster than ever, but the adoption rate isn't quite what it used to be. Maybe it never was what I thought it was. I guess I always enjoyed trying to stay on the cutting edge ......

One of the best attended sessions at the SOA Conference in Redmond last week was actually the last session on the last day when usually most people would be headed towards the airport. It was on the ESB Guidance that has been in the works for several months. Marty Wasznicky demo'd the final release bits and discussed the most recent refinements and ......

Ok, so I have a theme going and thought I might as well run with it. I promise this is the last "Is x Dead?" post. Of course BizTalk isn't dead. But it is going to change in the next couple of years. What I am talking about here is "Oslo", the recently announced, next-generation distributed computing vision from Microsoft. Oslo takes SOA to the Internet ......

I've been busy, but obviously not blogging. My last blog entry was May 2006! Since then I've: Continued to lead the Enterprise Integration Practice at twentysix New York (http://www.26ny.com/index.... - we've built up a team of BizTalk talent that is second to none. We have 7 certified BizTalk consultants: Jeff Bolton and Joe Tsai were from the farm ......

There have been a lot of threads lately on various discussion lists and blogs, such as this one, grappling with the future of Remoting with WCF coming down the pike. To explain my position, I first have to tell you my rule of software projects - “Every project sucks, except the one you are about to start.” We usually start projects with ......

Getting ready for my talk on Business Activity Monitoring at the NYC BizTalk 2006 First Look Clinic this week, I ran into an apparent bug on the BAM Portal. It wasn't showing the Pivot tables but was giving a message: “The query cannot be processed: Safety settings on this machine prohibit accessing a data source on another domain.“. Time ......

Not only is BizTalk sort of “Contract First” out of the box, there is now a tool for BizTalk to actually give you the same experience the thinktecture WSCF tool gives you(http://www.thinktecture... The new tool is written by Molnar Tibor and is called BiztalkWscfClient: http://geekswithblogs.net/m... ......

A few of us who evangelize BizTalk have noticed that it is sometimes tough to get developers excited about BizTalk. In general, the BizTalk class at a developer conference or event, e.g. VSLive, will not be the biggest draw. I think there are several reasons why this is: General lack of knowledge and understanding of exactly what BizTalk does. The name ......

That's right a BizTalk convoy. I don't mean like a bunch of messages being handled by a single orchestration. I mean like a bunch of people who realize they are going in the same direction and are a force to be dealt with. The inaugural meeting of the NYC Connected Systems User Group (www.nyccsug.org) was a roaring success. Only in NYC can you get 50 ......

I am presenting at my first Code Camp this Saturday in NYC. The matrix of sessions is here: http://nyc.codecamp.us/Matr... The registration is full, but you can register for the wait list here: http://msevents.microsoft.c... My talk is on Orchestrating Web Services with BizTalk Server 2006. ......

I needed a copy of the help files I could print out from my laptop which does not have BizTalk Server 2006 installed (I have it on a VPC but had trouble printing topic and all subtopics from there for some reason). This CHM version just came out last week and is very good. The content has been greatly improved since the Beta 2 release and overall seems ......

I'm a little late to the WCF bandwagon. In a past job as instructor and architectural consultant, I used to be the Beta Hound, sniffing out the latest cool technology coming out of Microsoft, downloading it, “playing” with it, then writing or teaching about it. After a few years of that, especially with the release of .NET, I missed being ......

Things are coming together for the new NYC Connected Systems user group (NYCCSUG). We now have: A web site: www.nyccsug.org. A meeting location: The Microsoft NYC office. An Inaugural Meeting planned: 6-8:30 PM on Thursday Feb 23rd Speakers: I will open up the meeting to introduce the group, discuss the purpose and logistics. Ian Murphy, a Business ......
