BizTalk Server 2009 Public Beta

Posted: December 10, 2008  |  Categories: BizTalk Server 2009 Uncategorized

Thanks to Richard I noticed BizTalk Server 2009 public beta is available (Microsoft Connect). After struggling a bit with my browser (Vista, IE7) and File Transfer Manager I downloaded:

  • BizTalk Server 2009 Beta – Release Notes
  • BizTalk Server 2009 Beta – Installation and Configuration Guide
  • BizTalk Server 2009 Accelerators Beta Evaluation Download
  • BizTalk Server 2009 Public Beta Evaluation Download

With this public beta I can also now try out ESB Guidance 2.0 CTP released last October through CodePlex. The Guidance is intended for developers working with Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 (us after having public beta) and who build solutions that leverage the Service Oriented Architecture pattern (Architects). To take full advantage of the Microsoft ESB Guidance, developers should possess the following on a VPC:

  • Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1

So I finally work with this release (try it out). Thanks Richard for info.
