Stuart Brierley Integration Management - BizTalk and More

As stated in my previous post I am currently reading Richard Seroter's  book "SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009".

Having just finished Chapter 1, Building BizTalk Server 2009 Applications, I thought I would record some immediate thoughts on what I have read so far.

This chapter works as an introduction to BizTalk Server, covering the basic architecture, schemas, maps, messaging and orchestrations.  While this is not likely to offer much to an experienced BizTalk developer, it does work as a good introduction to the platform and, in my opinion, should allow non BizTalk users to understand the basic principles and building blocks that can be used.

This chapter gave me a belief that I am going enjoy reading the rest of this book, as the writing style so far has been clear and friendly with the odd smattering of humour:

"This is where BizTalk Mapper functoids come to the rescue.  What in the world is a functoid?" - raised a smile with me anyway :)

I don't think that there is too much more to say on this chapter, next up is Chapter 2: Windows Communication Foundation Primer.
