Connection in the cloud : BizTalk Services & WCF

Posted: November 1, 2007  |  Categories: BizTalk Services Internet Service Bus Uncategorized WCF

Last session of today was around BizTalk Services aka Internet Service Bus as I learned today. Justin Smith did his talk with the following objectives:

– Intro BizTalk Services
– Service messaging options
– Introduce BizTalk API

And takeaways from this session are:

– Provide generic, secure connection
– Lowers bar for next gen development
– Incubation technology in this point

CTP is here now

Some of my notes during the session:

BizTalk Services != BizTalk Server
– BizTalk Services is an incarnation of the Internet Service Bus (new Buzzword coming up)
– Dilemma’s expose services broadly, identity and access control silos, interop to heterogeneous environment
– Services hosted by Microsoft: pub/sub mechanism, discoverability, http/rest interpertation, standard security based
– create account, download and install BizTalk Services SDK (compliant to .net fx 3.0 and 3.5)

– Demo BizTalk Services 101

– why: Software+Services (oslo), feedback regarding pub/sub, open door for applications
– all kinds of scenarios, consumer, enterprise, ect..
–;, workflow will come; gross anatomny
– pub/sub via uri’s : biztalk services (cloud)
– feeds as discovery
– ws-addressing
– Security: CardSpace or usrname/psw
– RelayBindingType

– Demo federated pictures

Very good session and some good demoes, so check it out.
