Kent Brown Keepin It Real BizTalk
Microsoft ESB Guidance for BizTalk Server 2006 R2 is live!
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 changes. He was basically done at that point, just waiting for the final i's to be dotted and t's to be crossed on the deployment package and for it all ......

Is BizTalk Dead?
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 was out at the SOA conference last week where Microsoft first publicly shared the vision that they are code-naming Oslo. There is a great story ......

Contract First and BizTalk
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... It currently supports BizTalk 2004 and VS.NET 2004, but he is working to upgrade it for BizTalk 2006 and VS.NET 2005 very soon. This is ......

Is Kent's blog dead?
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 team; Seong-moh Yang, Alex Star, Shashi Raina, and Juan Suero were brought in as free agents. And I am the player/coach. Seriously, it's great working ......

BAM Portal Pivot Table Error
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 was getting close to my presentation. Of course I could ask the audience to “trust me, it really works I'm just having some unexplainable bug ......

Winning developers over to the BizTalk way
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 probably doesn't convey what it does very well. Microsoft Enterprise Integration Server might have been a better name (but its too close to Host Integration ......

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.

BizTalk Server Compiled Help files
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 a massive improvement over the BTS 2004 documentation: http://blogs.msdn.com/luke/... ......
