It’s been a very busy week in terms of announcements. “Dublin” has been announced, and Darren Jefford probably has the best summary of what Dublin is and how it will affect us. Channel 9 has published some great webcasts looking at Visual Studio 2010 and the testing and UML features included in the new release. I like working with UML, but it’s not had that much exposure on the .net platform. I fought hard with Rational XDE for Visual Studio.net for a few days back in the day, and have also dabbled ...
Depuis un bon bout de temps, on parle beaucoup d'Oslo et de ce que Microsoft prépare pour sa nouvelle vague de techologie. On entend parlé de Could Computing, Mesh services, Could services, data modeling et encore bien d'autre. J'espère que Microsoft ne se trompe pas dans ce qu'il entreprend étant donné que je suis directement impacté par ce genre de décision de par mon travail. Toutefois, je ne crois pas que Microsoft ment quand il annonce que Oslo permettra aux analyste d'affaire d'une compagnie ...
History Back in 2005 Eddie Churchill, one of the BizTalk team members presented a couple of Channel 9 video titled “First look at Solution Designer” and “Biztalk's sexy new XSLT Mapper”. These videos showed very early prototypes of want may go on to form a part of BizTalk Server vNext. The BizTalk Solution Designer and the new mapper looked like great tools, and I remember many BizTalk developers looking forward to using them in BizTalk applications. Unfortunately they never made it into BizTalk, ...
Yesterday I launched “bloggersguides.net” a community site that will host resources for BizTalk Server and the up and coming Oslo technologies. http://bloggersguides.net The Bloggers Guide to BizTalk 2.0 If you have worked with BizTalk a while you may remember “The Bloggers Guide to BizTalk” which I first published back in October 2004. I’ve updated the BizTalk guide to include the latest contributions and added content from some new blogs. The guide now has about 500 articles. The Bloggers Guide ...
As many of you probably know by now, Microsoft has announced the next release in the BizTalk Server Family. This release will be called BizTalk Server 2006 R3. I for one am excited for this release, as I am about almost anything BizTalk related. I am not so excited about the new adapters and added features that will be available, but more by what this release represents. Microsoft and the Connection Systems Division are actively working on Oslo (the next generation of model drive design i.e. cool ...
Yesterday one of my colleague forwarded one email about new release coming up in biztalk server family. I am sharing that email content with you all. What did you announce? On Tuesday 22nd April 2008 we announce publicly that there will be an R3 release of BizTalk Server 2006, name: BizTalk Server 2006 R3. What is BizTalk Server 2006 R3? ‘R3’ is our planned release to enable customers to take advantage latest wave of 2008 products (Windows Server 2008, .NET Framework 3.5, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL ...
Today, Steve Martin announced a few details about the next version of BizTalk that will be available in early 2009. The release will be BizTalk Server 2006 R3, and is an incremental release of BizTalk and not related to the future Oslo releases. In the main this is a this compatibility release to support the 2008 wave of products.(Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio.NET 2008). Expect a CTP later in the year and full release after SQL 2008 goes gold. Additional features include: New ...
J'ai eu la chance d'assister à une présentation d'un spécialiste de Microsoft la fin de semaine dernière. La présentation visait à décrire en profondeur ce que permettait le ESB Guidance de Microsoft. Ce dernier est en fait une livraison d'assemblies .NET qui s'intègrent à BizTalk et qui gravite autour. En lien avec tout ce qui est SOA, S+S, SaaS, etc., le ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) est un pattern qui vise à faciliter les échanges entre les différentes entitées d'une architecture orientée service ...
With the earlier announcement from the Connected Systems Division around the project codename 'OSLO' it became clear that Microsoft have a big focus on Modelling. At the time in November 2007 the hint was given that this would be supported by a modelling language. At last week’s Lang.Net 2008 conference at Microsoft's Redmond campus — Chief CSD God Don Box provided a few hints as to where Microsoft is going on the tool and platform front with Oslo. Don stated that said Microsoft wasn’t interested ...
If you have been keeping up to date with developments within the Connected Systems Division within Microsoft you will be aware of the “Oslo” initiative. Microsoft has released information about this here, and Charles Young has a very informed summery of the initiative here. I’m not going to discuss too much about what Oslo is, what I will look at is how current and future BizTalk developers can start to consider the impact that Oslo will have on development, and how we can start looking at technologies ...
With the news of OSLO some months ago the Microsoft World has been all a buzz about Modelling. But this is a number of years away. What interests me is what do we do today? To model business processes today we need to be able to span not only BizTalk but also Workflow Foundation as well. At present there is no product that successfully does this, certainly not a Microsoft one! We can look to K2 for some relief but whilst it makes a go it the problem and delivers an excellent workflow tool we still ...
After meeting with Johan and Mikael from WMData we have planned a new start for the BizTalk user group. We plan to hold about six meetings during 2008, about one every two months. The first meeting will be at 17:45 on the Tuesday the 12th February at the KnowIT offices in central Stockholm (Klarabergsgatan 60, two minutes walk from the central station). . If you would like to attend, or be on the mailing list for future events, contact me via the blog with your email details. The agenda for the first ...
Oslo is the codename for technical thinking aimed specifically at simplifying designing, building, managing and scaling of service-oriented and composite applications that can span from the enterprise to the Internet. It is thought the first version of Oslo will be delivered through the next versions of our application platform products such as Microsoft Visual Studio 10, Microsoft System Center 5, BizTalk Server 6, BizTalk Services 1 and Microsoft .NET Framework 4. So, we are talking a 18 months ...
Ok, so I have a theme going and thought I might as well run with it. I promise this is the last "Is x Dead?" post. Of course BizTalk isn't dead. But it is going to change in the next couple of years. What I am talking about here is "Oslo", the recently announced, next-generation distributed computing vision from Microsoft. Oslo takes SOA to the Internet I was out at the SOA conference last week where Microsoft first publicly shared the vision that they are code-naming Oslo. There is a great story ...

Well yes I am excited about it like many other BizTalk developers. Microsoft announces the Oslo that will change the whole paradigm of service orientation and add the pace that is much awaited by the industry. The Oslo technologies will include the BizTalk Server 2006 R2, .Net Framework and BizTalk Services and will not make any challenge to the already made investments in the area. With the launch of ESB Guidance package, and Microsoft Connected Services Initiatives, this was expected, as the idea ...
As a long time BizTalk Architect/consultant and having been involved in a number of advisory discussions and technology sessions with the Connected Systems Division of Microsoft I've had a fair amount of time to decide what it all means.... In the recent announcements it will come as no surprise that the basis of Oslo is the next versions of existing products: Oslo is the code name for a set of technical investments that aim to significantly simplify designing, building, managing, and scaling service-oriented ...
Today at the UK Microsoft's Architects Council we had the news on the announcement of Oslo the next generation of Microsoft's SOA platform. This of course was not news as the Council is acting as Technical advisors to the Connected System division but it was nice to know the new was out! Building on the technology available today, the “Oslo” advancements will be delivered through Microsoft server and tools products in five key areas: Server. Microsoft BizTalk Server “6” will continue to provide a ...
Muhammad Yunus The Nobel Peace Prize for 2006 The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2006, divided into two equal parts, to Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank for their efforts to create economic and social development from below. Lasting peace can not be achieved unless large population groups find ways in which to break out of poverty. Micro-credit is one such means. Development from below also serves to advance democracy and human rights. Muhammad Yunus has shown ...
