I’ll be doing a webcast next Friday on Microsoft’s ESB Guidance. It will be recorded if you can’t make it live. This will be the first in a series, but I am not going to commit to future dates yet as I have a ton of things going on and am looking at 80%+ travel for an extended period of time. I will however be doing more webcasts. Future topics will be more advanced, include themes such as a deeper drilldown into SOA governance, extending the ESB Guidance, etc.

Details for this first webcast are:


Introduction to Microsoft’s ESB Guidance


The Microsoft ESB Guidance uses Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2 to support a loosely-coupled messaging architecture, and extends the functionality of BizTalk Server to provide a range of new capabilities focused on building robust, connected, service-oriented applications that incorporate itinerary-based service invocation for lightweight service composition, dynamic resolution of endpoints and maps, Web service and WS-* integration, fault management and reporting, and integration with third-party SOA governance solutions.

This webcast will be an introduction to Microsoft’s ESB Guidance. The goal of this session is to explore the architecture of Microsoft’s ESB Guidance 1.0, and explain how it can be applied to create ESB-based business solutions. We will examine the core components of the ESB Guidance, as well as the built-in extensibility points.
