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, April 5, 2005 8:59:30 PM 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.

The Indigo Programming Model
Friday, February 25, 2005 12:33:33 PM 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, February 21, 2005 7:29:02 PM 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.

WSE: Another Compression Filters Update!
Thursday, September 16, 2004 7:55:39 PM UTC ( Security | Tools | WSE )

It is great to see that someone has a taken an interest in the WSE compression filters I’ve been working on. Rodolfo Finochietti has added several new features to the code base.

  • Compress attachments
  • More algorithms (Deflate, Zip)
  • Compression level (set through compression context)
  • Threshold. Compresses according to the minimum message size (body size plus all attachments size)
  • Several other improvements and code cleaning.

    This is really exciting news. Great work Rodolfo!

    You find a list of download links here, or you can download it directly from this link.

    WS-Addressing makes its way to W3C
    Tuesday, August 10, 2004 8:23:12 PM 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.

    Gtk# and Glade# VS.NET 2003 SDK
    Sunday, August 8, 2004 3:18:14 PM UTC ( General | Mono )

    Paco Martinez over at Mono has created an easy to use Gtk# and Glade# installer that not only installs all the required files, but also includes a VS.NET 2003 compliant SDK with project templates, documentation and samples.

    The ultimate goal of this installer is to provide the best development experience when creating Gtk# applications in a Windows development environment.

    So if you are looking to develop cross platform .Net Windows applications, or you simply want to give a WinForms alternative a try; head over to this blog posting for download information and additional resources.

    It’s really cool to see how the CLR platform is catching on.

    WSE: Compression Filters Update
    Wednesday, July 28, 2004 6:21:46 PM UTC ( Tools | WSE )

    I released some sample code for a WSE compression filter a few months back, and I have recently updated the code to be more in tune with the look and feel of the WSE extension model.

    Since the initial release, I have submitted the code to the Plumbwork Orange project on GotDotNet. If you are looking for the most up-to-date version then that is definitely the place you would want to look. I have also made a snapshot of just the compression code available for download here.


    This SOAP compression extension is an implementation of an idea by Martin Valland and me, and it is in no way an official specification controlled by a standards body.

    This is a prototype implementation and it comes without warranty of any kind.
