    • 13 Comments
    Recently the Windows Azure Storage API’s were updated to include the ability to do cross account, asynchronous blob transfers. This means it was no longer necessary to download the blob in order to upload it to a different Windows Azure account. You can read all about this here . Over the past few weeks I have been working with the Windows Azure Virtual Machine feature that is currently in preview mode. I talked in a past blog post and video about using the Gallery to create a BizTalk 2010...

    • 9 Comments
    What is one of the biggest problems with having to set up BizTalk in a new Environment? Creating all the Hosts, Host Instances, and assigning the Adapters to these new hosts.

This tool is fed by a configuration file to set up the Hosts, install Host Instances, and assign Adapters to those Hosts. This tool also has the ability to prompt for a user password and reset all the Adapters back to the default Host (this...

    Setting Up BizTalk Server 2013 Beta on a Windows Azure Virtual Machine

    • 6 Comments
    A few days ago BizTalk 2013 Beta was announced and released for download .  The plan is to make this available as a Windows Azure Virtual Machine Image just like the CTP but it has not yet been released.  Since the prebuilt image is not available, I wanted to try to manually install BizTalk Server 2013 Beta on a Windows Azure Virtual Machine. I did the same thing with the BizTalk 2010 R2 CTP without any issues. Below is a quick overview of BizTalk 2013 and my experience trying to get this...

    Server AppFabric for the BizTalk Developer Video Session

    • 0 Comments
    If you consider yourself a hard core BizTalk Developer, then this session is for you! A few weeks ago I presented a session on Server AppFabric to the BizTalk User Group in Sweden. This session was geared to showing how similar Workflow 4.0 and AppFabric are to BizTalk – conceptually at least. The goal of this session was to show how us BizTalk guys and gals can quickly pick up Workflow 4 and AppFabric because we already understand the concepts. I would highly recommend this 60 minute session...

    Root Node Type Name Vs Node Name

    • 1 Comments
    I just wanted to take a second to get everyone on the same page since these properties are VERY important in BizTalk. If you are a solo developer or you have never renamed a root node, then you may not understand the importance of these properties. First off, what are they? Node Name: This is the name that is displayed inside Visual Studio for the root node in the schema and for each field element in a property schema. Root Node Type Name: Basically, this is what BizTalk will call your root node...
