Here is some good news for veteran BizTalk developers & architects.
Remember the whitepaper: Developing Integration Solutions with BizTalk Server 2004 ?
I used to recommend it to any organization embarking on their first BizTalk project.
It contained an approach for the major part of the Application Life Cycle Management for BizTalk Server 2004.
Well, recently Dennis Mulder, a senior consultant with MCS has updated this document to BizTalk 2006 R2 titled:
Developing Integration Solutions using BizTalk Server 2006 and Team Foundation Server
Check out the newly updated document that provides techniques and best practices for designing, developing, and deploying solutions within Microsoft® BizTalk® Server 2006 (R2) in conjunction with Team Foundation Server.
We intend to create next year yet another version of this document to cover BizTalk Server 2009.
