Completed with discarded messages??? (zombies)

Now that I have gotten my post approved by Scott (Woodgate) (check out his blog, too, for more info. He actually seems to know a thing or two about this product. 🙂 Kidding … he knows a lot, I just like to pull his leg.) here is my first post with real content. This is a…

Large messages in BizTalk 2004, what’s the deal?

The large message support story in BizTalk Server 2004 is a complex one, mainly because the definition of large message varies significantly. This, in turn, is complicated by the fact that our customers expect everything to work with all of the possible variations of “large message”. So, how large a message can BizTalk Server 2004…

Is there a pub/sub system underneath BizTalk?

    Okay, according to the stats, you guys stopped reading when I posted the convoy topic, but, well, I’ll keep throwing stuff at you and hope you enjoy it.   This is the first installment of the bizTalk pub/sub infrastructure talk. I have met lots of people who are confused about this (some of…

Testing

Msgbox Operations Advanced Queries Download available

Okay, GotDotNet is way too slow getting stuff up. I guess they have to proofread and be careful since it is a public site. So, in the mean time, my friend (not my boss which appears to be the impression some people have. Scott and I got a good laugh) Scott Woodgate has let me…

I’m back. :)

Okay, wow apparently people are out there waiting for some more BTS blogs. So here we go. First, who am I? My name is Lee Graber. In August I will have been working as a developer on BizTalk Server for 5 years. In previous releases I owned (a non-MS friend recently commented on the oddity…

Okay, so where do subscriptions come from?

So where do subscriptions come from or more importantly when do they appear. As we described in our earlier post, there are two types of subscriptions, activation subscriptions and instance (correlation) subscriptions. All activation subscriptions are created by admin tools like BizTalk Explorer or BizTalk Admin MMC. It does not make sense for the engine…

Job Openings

Hi all. Hope everyone watched as the Seahawks pummelled the Carolina Panthers yesterday. For our remote team members out in Charlotte … ouch … 6 total yards in the first quarter … ouch (I know it hurt Brian :). However, on a positive note, the Biztalk team is growing and has a lot of cool…
