SOA & Integration Services - BizTalk, WCF, WF, AppFabric etc Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?
I've been programming for about 20 years now some of my friends have been at it for over 30. I have read many, many manuals and yes it's not my favourite past time. So 10 years ago I made a promise to myself to try and only learn about products which have long life times. I immediately gave up programming GUIs and concentrated on back end development ......

I come across this problem a lot. I often get work to fix problems that largely stem from bad interface design. Architects know how important interfaces are whether they be WSDL, C# interfaces, stored procedure parameters etc. Developers in my experience should get a grip on this stuff. Once you have some requirements spending some quality time working ......

I uninstalled AppFabric Beta 2 and installed AppFabric RC. The AppFabricEventCollection Service is started (runs under Local Service which is a dbo_owner on the Monitoring Database to prove this wasn’t the issue). The SQLServerAgent Service is started. Nothing is being written to the Monitoring DB Staging Table and thus nothing is being written to the ......

I haven’t posted much for a while but after 3 years as a Solution Architect I’m back to my old role designing and developing SOA Frameworks and Management Platforms.
So you may be hearing a bit more from me in the future.


Simon an architect I work with was talking to a developer this morning. The conversation went as so… Simon: Are you sure you want to use FTP to transfer this data I’m not sure it will be fast enough Developer: Well FTP is faster than TCPIP Simon (to himself): I have now entered the twilight zone ......

We finally got an EJB Web Service today from a Trading Partner the interface looked something like this ... public Asset ReturnAsset(bool ReturnAsset) We surmised that due to cronic shortages of quality developers they have finally begun to teach chimpanzees Java, not bad for a chimp. Also liked this newsgroup thread Simon found yesterday ......

A new online BizTalk mag has come out, a more pleasent read than most whitepapers, especially if you're a motor head or a fan of that Ministry song.



I just noticed that in GeeksWithBlogs move to SubText some of my old screen shots have been lost, I'll fix these as soon as I get time.

We are developing BizTalk applications with Visual Studio Team Edition and every now and then for some reason the Orchestration Designer is removed from the "Open With" dialog, thus when one double clicks on an orchestration it is opened with the Xml Editor. Although I'm not sure why this happens, I suspected the items in this dialog were configured ......

In the past I have noticed that system testers find it difficult to test middleware applications such as those implemented using BizTalk. System testers generally don't want to read BizTalk xml messages dumped out to disk, they like to be able to query for their test results via some form of GUI. Many are adept at writing SQL to return result sets containing ......

84% it wasn't that bad, but it should have been easy after 3+ years working with BizTalk, lots on BAM and the BRE. I think I lost marks on the drag and drop questions and there was a tricky question on coding a BRE fact retriever. I used Saravana's exam preparation diary ......

A client was getting this compile error "in a sequential convoy the ports must be identical" when compiling an orchestration which had two consecutive receive ports in a sequential convoy. The answer was simple they needed to use a concurrent convoy not a sequential convoy ......

If you haven't already download and install the Service Factory it really reduces the time taken to build and publish your WCF services to IIS letting you concentrate on implementing business logic. Unfortunately it doesn't come with any refactoring functionality. ......
