    • 17 Comments
    For those of you who do not know, one of the features of BizTalkGurus.com is the aggregate blog feed .  This feed goes back over 8 years and has over 8,000 posts.  Since I started the BizTalk feed, I have expanded the aggregate feeds to include App Fabric and Windows Workflow.

This tool also has the ability to prompt for a user password and reset all the Adapters back to the default Host (this...

    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...

    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...
