  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
  • Microsoft .NET development techniques, including the development of ASP.NET Web services and .NET Framework components

  • New ESB Web services, including the Itinerary and Resolver services
  • New samples that demonstrate itinerary processing, UDDI service integration, and the BizTalk Operations and Resolver services; the ESB Management Portal, and an implementation of the Scatter/Gather pattern for Web services
