SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009 - Book Review
I pre-ordered this book by Richard Seroter and eagerly awaited its delivery, but due to work commitments I have not really been able to give it the time it needed. Things are a bit quieter now so I thought I’d bite the bullet and work my way through it. I have to say I rather like the book; it is a good mixture of BizTalk Server 101 and BizTalk Server arcana. For me the book is split in to 3 distinct parts, with Part 1 covering Chapters 1 – 4 and what I would call “Introduction and Background”, Part ......

To this end I started taking a look at the new WCF SQL Adapter in the BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0. This new adapter is built using the WCF LOB Adapter SDK ......

Processes in BizTalk RFID
I recently had the good fortune to attend a free Microsoft event on BizTalk Server RFID. I’ve had a little play with BizTalk Server RFID in the past but one thing I hadn’t realised was that when you create a process it actually creates a WCF service and publishes it to IIS. RFID Admin IIS Manager Note the hosting.svc file and the process.svc files. Over the next few days I hope to have a closer look at these and see what they expose and what you can do with them. Overall I find this quite cool but ......
