    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?

    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.

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...
