I’m not about to start a series of “daily links” post, but here are recent links I find relevant:

  • BizTalk 2006 R2 will come out in September, including a more affordable “Branch Edition” (for those who remember the Partner Edition), destined to be used in conjunction with Enterprise Edition instalations.
  • Two new BizTalk Server whitepapers: Best Practices for the Sql Adapter and Sample Design Patterns for Consuming and Exposing Web Services from an Orchestration. Personally I’m not a big fan of directly exposing databases to BizTalk, so I can’t give an opinion on the first, but the second is very useful and I advise you read it.
  • If you are used to think in Pub/Sub, there’s a new Microsoft project at CodePlex that looks interesting: Distributed Pub/Sub Event System, a %u00aba general-purpose distributed publish/subscribe event system designed for high performance and low latency%u00bb.

Happy reading!
