Hi Folks I wanted to let you know about some new BizTalk details with the release of a Feature pack.
The main component of the Feature Pack is to install a new component called ‘BizTalk Server 2010 AppFabric Connect for Services’ – which in essence provides cloud based endpoints for your BizTalk deployments (based on .NET services)
Download from HERE
I’m rolling my up my sleeves and looking further into it.
(There’s an MSDN blog post on it - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/biztalk_server_team_blog/archive/2010/10/21/biztalk-server-appfabric-connect-for-services.aspx of which 2 screen shots below are taken from it)
Which gives you Azure/.NET Service Bus WCF bindings seen from within BizTalk of the following:
I haven’t been able to see Queuing support from within the Binding, previously this was custom code that was written when establishing a connection to the .Net Service Bus.
(this gives you the ability to publish msgs out to the ‘bus’ and clients can be either connected or disconnected and when they reconnect, the msgs will flow from their last one.)
