Title: Visual Studio 2005 Team System : Team Edition for Software Architects Overview
Abstract: Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Architects introduces new distributed system designers that assist in the design and deployment of distributed, service-oriented systems. These design tools enable an architect or developer to design a distributed system in terms of connected applications that provide and consumer services. In the first release of these tools, the focus is on the design and development of Web services-based applications and the configuration of reusable systems for deployment. Once designed, systems can be validated against logical datacenter models to determine if they will deploy successfully. This session focuses on the application and system design tools, particularly on the Web services design features, including support for contract-first design. We explore how the tools can be used both for architectural design and validation prior to code generation, and to visualize and extend an existing implemented solution. We also explore the extensibility features that allow additional types of applications to be represented.
