SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009 by Richard Seroter

Recently I had the chance to review an excellent book called SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009 by Richard Seroter who maintains a popular and appreciated blog on BizTalk. The book discusses the core principles of SOA and shows how to effectively apply them in a BizTalk solution. Richard provides a good insight in WCF Adapters and explains with clear samples how to exploit their functionalities to implement synchronous and asynchronous communication patterns.  The author makes a superb introduction of technologies such as the new WCF SQL Adapter, UDDI  and the ESB Guidance 2.0. SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009 is definitely a must have book for all BizTalk developers, especially for those who intend to design and implement a complex SOA platform using BizTalk Server 2009. You can download for free the Chapter 9: New SOA Capabilities in BizTalk Server 2009: WCF SQL Server Adapter from the Packt website. This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Executing composite transactions
  • Polling for data
  • Using SQL Server Query notification
  • Consuming the adapter from outside BizTalk Server

I sincerely suggest this book to all BizTalkers. 😉
