Geeks With Blogs
Under the Influence of Integration Technologies Joe Klug

OK, so I haven't been the best blogger.  You know how it goes - you start working on a project and it consumes all your time.  Then you start on another project, then another, and so on.  The good news is that I was doing some very interesting work and have lots to share here.  To give you an idea of what's to come, here are some of the topics I've been working on:

  • BizTalk, MOSS, WCF, and WF - all together in a series of Hands-on-Labs soon to be available from Microsoft
  • BAM For Developers - a series of hands on labs covering BizTalk's Business Activity Monitoring, from defining activity models and capturing data with BizTalk, WCF, and WF, to accessing and analyzing the data with a host of products like SQL Server Reporting Services, PerformancePoint, and MOSS.  Finally, there is a lab on building a RESTful API that exposes some of the BAM capabilities as resources accessible through a simple HTTP/Atom interface.  These labs will also soon be available from Microsoft.  These labs were based on the new whitepaper - BAM for Developers.  See my post regarding it's availability!
  • BizTalk Adapter Pack and the WCF LOB Adapter SDK - I've been building a comprehensive LOB demo for my old team.  It utilizes the SAP and new Oracle e-Business Suite adapter, demonstrating the use of these adapters in several different scenarios.

Those first two Hands-on-Lab series are also making an appearance as instructor-led-labs in Microsoft's TechReady this February.  Hopefully they'll make it to TechEd later this year!

Anyways, hopefully I will keep-up with this blog and share those interesting, undocumented, frustrating nuggets of information one runs across when trying to make all these different Microsoft technologies work together.

Happy New Year!
