Larry Beck Enterprise Architecture for Connected Systems
A while back Scoble published a link to Jakob Nielsen's list of 10 design mistakes that bloggers make. I've been taking that list to heart, in the attempt to improve the community and personal value of my blog. Today I can finally announce that I've taken one of the recommended steps (#10, actually) and have moved my blog onto my own domain. Not being ......

Jason Turnage has a blog that is hosted on MSN Spaces; it's the first blog I've subscribed to that is hosted there. MSN has taken an interesting approach to blog hosting, and probably one that is much more aligned with the casual, personal blogger than the traditional services. Anyway, Jason has a great story about how his company was testing a new ......

Let me preface this by saying that I have no insider knowledge on this topic, and that this post represents my personal opinion and forecast - tea leaves and crystal balls, as it were. I believe that the BizTalk Adapter Framework, as we know it, is approaching end-of-life. Already. With "v2" still six months out. Why? Because Microsoft is doing the ......

David Green, the architect of Windows Workflow Foundation, has started his blog. Folks, this guy is brilliant, and I'm sure that anything he has to say is something you'll want to hear. Find him here. His first feature blog - What is Workflow, and why Bother? - closes with the following line: "But if none of these benefits apply in your scenario, then ......

I finally had the chance to meet Steve Maine of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF, codename "Indigo") fame face-to-face. While Steve and I actually worked "together" for most of my Avanade career we hadn't met, and it was one of my objectives at the PDC to rectify that. Thanks to Matt Joe we met at the Ask the Experts session Thursday night and ......

Some of my earlier posts alluded to the announcements that were made at PDC - Microsoft's release of a platform-level workflow technology, known as Windows Workflow Foundation. I was fortunate enough to participate in the early adopter program and be exposed to this exciting new framework several months ago. While there may have been more splash around ......

Seems I missed the excitement of the power outage today; the cabbie relayed the story to me as we creeped up I405, feeling the after-affects of the heavy congestion that was only worsened by the lack of traffic signals. Unfortunately I had to reserve the my room at the hotel that is the further from the Convention Center, but that Sheraton Universal ......

I've been working with a new Workflow technology that Microsoft is planning to announce - and demonstrate heavily - at PDC. However, if you're not registered to attend PDC (and it's sold out!) then you can find out more by viewing the Week of Webcasts; in fact, I'd suggest you add Paul Andrew's blog to your morning read, as he's the the Technical Product ......

The most common question that I received on Beta 1 of this application was about testing with transports other than File. While it is not my intent to write all of the implementations that may be necessary I did provide an extensibility model for the community to do so. However, it was buried in the Help File and not very explicit about how to go about ......

I've uploaded Beta 2 of the BizTalk Peformance Tester (yes, I've changed the name) to GotDotNet. This release fixes the following reported bugs: Added configuration menu item to support post-install configuration changes via the UI Fixed bug in configuration UI where the delete timer value was being misrepresented Updated the documentation with a run-time ......

I've been watching the download counter on the BizTalk Throughput and Capacity Tester and it reached 120 this weekend. Wow!! I hope that all of you are finding this tool useful. What I'm wondering if anyone has any bugs to report. I'm sure there have to be at least a few in there! :-) I'm also interested in any wishlist items you may have. Please post ......

Just wanted to take a second to clarify my purpose in having this blog. It's not my intent to use this is a news distribution service. A few of the bloggers that I read often focus on news dissemination and they have their place - it's just not the place that I want for this blog to live. I want to publish original works, including papers, position ......

One of my favorite BizTalk gurus is Richard Seroter. Richard is one of the those talented, visionary guys that I've always enjoyed working with and around. While he recently left Avanade to join Microsoft, we stay in touch and I read his blog religiously. He just published a great step-by-step example of Building and Executing a BizTalk Single Sign-On ......

The Beta 1 release is now available here. A description of the tester is available here, and the application installs a Word document that describes how to use it. Please post any bug reports or feature requests to this blog entry ......
