Final WCF Adapter for BizTalk Server 2006 Update
Friday, December 7, 2007 1:09:09 AM UTC ( BizTalk Server )

Now that BizTalk Server 2006 R2 is released, it marks the end of my WCF prototype adapter. This version of BizTalk has a production quality WCF integration in the box, not to mention the greatly improved adapter programming experience available in the WCF LOB Adapter SDK.

I would like to thank everyone that used this adapter for their proof of concept demos, presentations and just their eager for new technology. It was fun working on it, and I appreciate all of your great feedback and enthusiasm :)

If anyone for nostalgic reasons would like to have a look at it, it is still available on CodePlex.

WCF and WS-Compression
Friday, December 7, 2007 12:50:23 AM UTC ( )

After writing a WS-Compression library for WSE a few years ago, we finally got around to porting it, or rather completely rewriting it, to fit a more modern WCF architecture. After some initial design discussions we decided to implement it as a WCF channel, largely because of its nature as a symmetric infrastructure protocol. That said, the WCF channel architecture leaves a lot to be desired when building supports for these kinds of protocols, where the actual communication pattern isn't that relevant. I am hoping that this is something the product team intends to make easier in the future.

The code was largely written by one of the developers on my team,  Andrew William Franks, and myself. If you have any comments or additions feel free to join the project, or leave a task in the work items list :)

Anyway, the source code is up on CodePlex for those of you interested in either a WCF custom channel sample or a WS-Compression stack.

The Importance of Mono
Tuesday, April 10, 2007 8:23:53 PM UTC ( Architecture | Mono )

I’ve just noticed a nice little article about the importance of Mono (.Net on other platforms). Mono is one of my favorite open source projects, not to mention the significance I feel it has in the .Net domain. Have a look.

BizTalk Server 2006 and XML Web Services FAQ
Thursday, June 15, 2006 8:14:22 AM 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, April 19, 2006 8:48:04 PM 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, April 19, 2006 8:38:43 PM 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, 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.

Download!
