BugLoSE will host second meeting

BugLoSE will host second meeting

The first meeting was a success. Not as good as BUGS I can tell you that, but the feedback had a lot of nice words in it at least.

Next Thursday is Holy Thursday, which by Swedish work ethic means that no one attends a meeting after 12. Therefore the meeting is held next Thursday (the 12th) at the same time.

The topic is: A lot of useful hints and tricks that are in BizTalk but that you might know of or seldom use.

SQL Server 2012 RTM: installing SSDT | installation des SSDT

SQL Server 2012 RTM: installing SSDT | installation des SSDT

On my development machine, I wanted to install the SQL Server Data Tools. With Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2012 RTM installed, the SSDT are still to be installed from here :Sur ma machine de d%u00e9veloppement, je voulais installer les outils de donn%u00e9es SQL Server (SSDT).

From Windows Platform Installer (WebPI), it failed, so I went to the bottom of this same installation page where there is the possibility to download SSDTSetup.exe. After executing this setup in an interactive way, I got the error message:Depuis Windows Platform Installer (WebPI), cela ne fonctionnait pas; je suis donc all%u00e9 en bas de la page d’installation o%u00f9 il y a la possibilit%u00e9 de t%u00e9l%u00e9charger SSDTSetup.exe.

I couldn’t find information with the error message. I searched manually and found this page which provides a script (and a way to execute it) that removes project codename Juneau CTP3.
Here is the magic URL:

NB: Be aware that uninstallation script may reboot your machine without prompting youAttention: le script de d%u00e9sinstallation peut red%u00e9marrer la machine sans avertissement pr%u00e9alable

 

After that, SSDTSetup.exe can install:Apr%u00e8s cela, SSDTSetup.exe peut installer:

ETL in the Cloud with Informatica: Part 3 – Sending Dynamics CRM Online Data to Local Database

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, I’ve taken a look at doing Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) operations using the Informatica Cloud. This platform looks like a great choice for bulk movement of data between cloud or on-premises systems. So far we’ve seen how to move data from on-premises to the cloud, and then between […]

BizTalk Server 2010 Cookbook

BizTalk Server 2010 Cookbook

imageI love this concept of cookbooks; they follow the same concept as your kitchen cookbook, bunch of recipes to prepare a fancy meal.

You are never going to sit and read all the recipes in one night, you are going to keep the book as reference and follow the recipe you fancy.

Technical cookbook got similar characteristics. There are various recipes, you pick the one that’s more relevant to the piece of work you are doing. Short, Sweet and up to the point.

This new cookbook from Steef-Jan Wiggers consist of over 50+ BizTalk recipes, covering various proven design patterns, best practices, or simply showing you some tips and tricks you never come across.

I personally know Steef-Jan very well and know about this book project for a long time. In fact I was chosen as one of the technical reviewers for the book, but had to pull out due to my commitments with BizTalk360.

Writing a book is not a easy task, most of these guys don’t do it for making money. It’s their passion and interest in technology that drives them to write such valuable books sacrificing  a great deal on their personal life.

With the effort that’s gone into this book by Steef-Jan over the last year or so, I’m fairly confident it’s worth every penny.

EDI Schemas – Beware of special characters which MUST not count towards maximum length restrictions

While working on a BizTalk project that required the exchanging of EDI messages with external partners, I came across a situation whereby the partner’s EDIFact messages contained data elements which exceeded the maximum lengths as dictated by their Message Implementation Guide (MIG), which also happened to be the default maximum length in the out of […]
