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.
