Windows Server “Dublin” technologies
Monday, 06 October 2008 16:31:02 UTC ( Architecture | Dublin | Indigo )

PDC is approaching rapidly and Microsoft is opening up its communication around the next wave of technologies; one thing I believe to be particularly interesting is Codename Dublin.

This technology supplements Windows with much needed application platform components to enhance the WCF and WF design experience.  Among other things it includes infrastructure services for message correlation and forwarding, content-based routing and transaction compensation.

I guess you can look at WCF and WF as frameworks and Dublin as infrastructure services around those frameworks.

The Dublin release will follow the release of .Net Framework v4.0 and Visual Studio 2010.

WCF Adapter for BizTalk Server 2006 Update
Monday, 19 February 2007 23:26:05 UTC ( BizTalk Server | Indigo | Tools )

I've updated the WCF Adapter for BizTalk Server 2006, and uploaded binaries compatible NetFX 3.0 RTM.

Source code and binaries are available at CodePlex.

I've updated to the WCF Adapter for BizTalk Server 2006 to work with .Net FX 3.0 RTM.

Sourcecode and binaries are available at CodePlex.

BizTalk Server 2006 and XML Web Services FAQ
Thursday, 15 June 2006 08:14:22 UTC ( BizTalk Server | Indigo )

I’ve been getting a few questions around XML Web Services support in BizTalk Server 2006, mostly in relation to the WCF adapter prototype I wrote.

The BizTalk Server team has published a FAQ that should cover a lot of the questions you may have.

WCF Compression Filter
Wednesday, 19 April 2006 20:48:04 UTC ( Indigo | Tools | WSE )

Some time back a coworker and I released a sample compression filter for WSE 2.0 nicknamed “WS-Compression”, this sample was later enhanced and finally converted to a WSE 3.0 compliant filter.

As it turns it has further evolved into a WCF compression filter available from this blog post.

Interesting how things work out!

WCF Adapter for BizTalk Server 2006
Wednesday, 19 April 2006 20:38:43 UTC ( BizTalk Server | Indigo | Tools )

My original prototype Indigo adapter for BizTalk Server 2004 has evolved and is now available as a community project on GotDotNet. The current version runs under BizTalk Server 2006 and WinFX January CTP; the most recent WCF build available with a go-live license.

Both source code and binaries are available in the downloads section; either you just want to take it for a spin or help out with the development.

TechEd 2005 Europe

It’s time for TechEd Europe again!

I’m doing a session on BizTalk Server 2004 and Indigo where I will go through some of the scenarios where these technologies can work together to offer some very interesting solutions. There will be several demos showing off the latest bits of the prototype adapter as well as a little low-level section on how the adapter was developed at the end.

If you find this topic interesting then drop by Room 3A on Thursday 7th at 18.15!

Indigo Adapter for BizTalk Server 2004 - First Sightings
Tuesday, 05 April 2005 20:59:30 UTC ( BizTalk Server | Indigo | Tools )

As I mentioned briefly before, I’m currently working on a prototype Indigo adapter for BizTalk Server 2004. I’ve uploaded a early drop based on the Indigo March CTP, so if you have an extra VPC image available and some spare time then give it a shot.

Once again, this is an early prototype implementation. Not all of the configuration settings work and not all of them make sense in every context.

And of course, these binaries are provided without support or warranty of any kind.

Download!

The Indigo Programming Model
Friday, 25 February 2005 12:33:33 UTC ( Indigo )

Clemens is on a roll with lots of fresh Indigo information. If you want to get a feel for the new programming model you should header over, and subscribe, to his blog.

Indigo Adapter for BizTalk Server 2004
Monday, 21 February 2005 19:29:02 UTC ( BizTalk Server | Indigo )

I guess the news is out!

Scott Woodgate from the Microsoft BizTalk team recently mentioned on his blog that I’ve been working on a prototype Indigo adapter for BizTalk Server 2004. And if you were one of the lucky people attending VS Live a few weeks ago you may have seen it in action on stage.

It has been great fun working with the early Indigo builds, and it is shaping up to become a truly fantastic piece of technology. There is no doubt in my mind that joining Indigo and BizTalk Server will yield a powerful combination, and I am extremely grateful to be a part of this early effort.

Now that the secret is out you should expect some more information soon.

WS-Addressing makes its way to W3C
Tuesday, 10 August 2004 20:23:12 UTC ( Architecture | Indigo | Security | WSE )

WS-Addressing, a vital piece of XML Web Services infrastructure, has just been submitted to the W3C.

With WS-Security being an official OASIS standard, and WS-Addressing entering the W3C standardization process, we may soon be looking at the first stable set of advanced web services infrastructure.

These two specifications form the foundation of the Microsoft Web Services Enhancements toolkit's functionality. Perhaps we will soon say goodbye to backwards incompatibility and short support lifecycles in this particular area.

As always, it is great fun to follow the advances.

Indigo and NNUG
Thursday, 04 December 2003 18:31:42 UTC ( Indigo | Talks )

I delivered my third presentation at the Norwegian .Net User Group (NNUG) on Tuesday. Building on my previous presentation about message-oriented architectures I talked about the new Microsoft product codenamed “Indigo”; without a doubt some of the must exciting stuff in the works these days.

I positioned “Indigo” within modern architecture and talked about the primary programming model; the “Indigo” Service Model. I closed with some recommendation about how to prepare for “Indigo”, how to migrate your existing code and some information about interoperability with existing programming stacks.

Needless to say it was great fun. And I even got some Xbox games for my efforts ;)

The presentation, Codename “Indigo” – The Future of Distributed Applications, is available for download here.
