If you had previously subscribed to my RSS feed, I’m sorry, but you’ll need to do so again, see the link in the left margin. My passion for technologies has not changed (BizTalk/ESB/SOA/Oslo/Dublin/Cloud/etc). I have some pent-up blog posts inside...

    ESBT: Just to clarify, “Everything” includes “All”, but “All” doesn’t mean “Everything”

    Am I embarking on some kind of weird philosophical/existentialist post? Nope. If you’ve been exploring the ESB Toolkit 2.0, then you know that there is a management portal. In addition, some of the core services provided by the ESB Toolkit are available as Web services. One of those services gives the ability for a Web service client to register the fact that an exception has occured. This is a powerful capability, as (for example) it would allow a J2EE application in a heterogeneous environment...

    Two new ESB Toolkit videos now live (incl a really cool BizTalk demo)

    As part of the recent BizTalk Server 2009 “First Look” tour I did in the US Southwest district, I developed a demo application that brought together some of the techniques I have used on client projects over the years, and the new ESB Toolkit 2.0. I did so in what I think is a very approachable and easy-to-understand way. I recorded two of the demos, and they are now available at MSDN. In my opinion, the most important of these is the “Order Demo” video . It showcases how we can leverage the Microsoft...
