Things hard and not so hard.... RSS 2.0
# Monday, March 29, 2010

The other day this landed in my inbox. Being on the TAP program and posting various pieces of feedback I’ve been updated that BizTalk 2010 is the only name to remember.

Keeps inline with VSNET2010 etc etc, so anything with a 2010 after its name *should* work with each other. SharePoint 2010 etc.

So far I’ve been playing with the early bits and I’m liking what I’m seeing – copy and paste functoids in a map!!! (for those of you who don’t know the pain….it’s pain let me tell you)

So here’s the official blurb…

Well done BizTalk Team! Working Hard!

------------------------------------------

BizTalk Server 2010 Name Change Q&A

Q: Why was the original name for the release BizTalk Server 2009 R2?

BizTalk Server 2009 R2 was planned to be a focused release to deliver support for Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2010. Aligning BizTalk releases to core server platform releases is very important for our customers. Hence our original plan was to name the release as BizTalk Server 2009 R2.

Q: Why did Microsoft decide to change the name for BizTalk Server 2009 R2 to BizTalk Server 2010?

Over the past year we got lot of feedback from our key customers and decided to incorporate few key asks from our customers in this release. Based on customer value we are delivering and positive feedback we are getting from our early adopter customers we feel the release has transitioned from minor release (BizTalk Server 2009 R2) to a major release (BizTalk Server 2010).  

Following is list of key capabilities we have added to the release

1.       Enhanced trading partner management that will enable our customers to manage complex B2B relationships with ease

2.       Increase productivity through enhanced BizTalk Mapper. These enhancements are critical in increasing productivity in both EAI and B2B solutions; and a favorite feature of our customers.

 

3.       Enable secure data transfer across business partners with FTPS adapter

4.      

U    Updated adapters for SAP 7, Oracle eBusiness Suite 12.1, SharePoint 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2

5.      

      Improved and simplified management with updated System Center management pack

6.      

      Simplified management through single dashboard which enables IT Pros to backup and restore BizTalk configuration

7.      

      Enhanced performance tuning capabilities at Host and Host Instance level

 

8.       Continued innovation in RFID Space with out of box event filtering and delivery of RFID events

 

Q: Is there any additional benefit to customers with name change to BizTalk Server 2010?

In addition to all the great value the release provides, customers will benefit from support window being reset to 10 years (5 years mainstream and 5 years extended support). This highlights Microsoft’s long term commitment to BizTalk Server product.

BizTalk | 2006 R2 | 2009 | R2 | Training
# Tuesday, December 22, 2009
Folks Christmas and the holiday season has started with the BizTalk Team been busy and are opening up the BTS 2009 R2 TAP program on connect.

If you're a customer (or have customers) that would/could benefit in working with some of the newer BizTalk features - with the prospect of MS being able to have some visibility into the solution, then go for it.

https://connect.microsoft.com/biztalk

I'm looking fwd to the BizTalk Dashboard and a whole bunch of other enhancements.

Here's a snip for you....

---------------------------------------

 

 BizTalk Server V6 Image

Welcome to the Microsoft BizTalk Server Connect website

 

We encourage you to visit this site where we will keep you informed of Technology Adoption Programs (TAP) and other customer pre-release programs for Microsoft BizTalk Server.

 

We have a number of programs currently underway as well as several that will be starting up in the near future.  If you are interested to participate in any of the programs below, please register for the program by selecting the associated link, and return the completed nomination form to btssoacp@microsoft.com .

 

Current Programs

  •  BizTalk Server 2009 R2
  • BizTalk Server 2006 R2 SP1 beta 

 

 BizTalk Server 2009 R2

 

What’s planned for the next BizTalk release?

 

VS 2010 Support

  • Use of Visual Studio 2010 to develop application for BizTalk Server 2009 R2
  • Projects developed in VS 2008 can be seamlessly migrated to Visual Studio 2010

 

 

Intelligent Mapper

  • Enhanced user interface for better visualization of maps and to support complex mappings
  • Background noise reduction using highlight propagation, auto scrolling  and sibling coalescing
  • Support for search
  • Reusable parts for improved user productivity
  • Enhancements to the current functoids

 

Enhanced Trading Partner Management (TPM)

 

BizTalk Administration Console – Performance Enhancements

This feature aims to improve BizTalk Administration Console performance across the board by more than 60%. Key Scenarios like refresh, addition, deletion of port, enlistment of an orchestration will be optimized. Post Enhancements, the BizTalk Administration Console would be more responsive and address one of the key customer pain-points of Console performance in BizTalk 2009.

 

BizTalk Settings Dashboard

The BizTalk Settings Dashboard will serve as a one-stop shop for BizTalk Engine settings visualization and modification. This feature will enable BizTalk Administrators to centrally manage BizTalk Settings as admins will be able to export and import settings from one environment to another (for e.g. staging to production). The BizTalk Settings Dashboard is a step forward in consolidating all BizTalk Settings and will incorporate design extensibility to accommodate future addition of settings.

 

Improved Management Pack

The Improved System Center Management Pack will address key customer pain-points (e.g. high-CPU usage, duplication of discovered artifacts etc.) in the existing Management Pack. The new and improved design will also incorporate enhancement like better visualization of BizTalk Application and Platform Artifacts, Improved monitoring and diagnostics of artifacts like Orchestrations, Grouping of Alerts etc.

 

RFID OOB Event Filtering and Delivery

The scope for this feature covers providing a set of OOB components for Duplicate Elimination filter, EPC based filter, DWELL filter, posting events from BizTalk RFID to BizTalk Server, Posting events from BizTalk RFID to an EPCIS service and an Event Delivery framework for applications to subscribe and receive asynchronous events. These Out Of Box components address common RFID scenarios and will enable partners to focus solely on business logic hence helping accelerate BizTalk RFID solutions.

 

FTP/FTPS Adapter

The FTP Adapter in BizTalk is one of the most popular transport adapter in BizTalk server, used in different scenarios.  In BizTalk Server 2009 R2, we provide additional features in the FTP adapter that includes the following:

-          Support for FTPS, FTP over SSL – Enables to connect to FTPS servers for transferring files securely.  Both Implicit and Explicit FTPS are supported.

-          Support for read-only FTP servers – Enables configuration to pick up files from a partner FTP server which may provide only read-only permission.  The adapter will ensure that each file is submitted only once to BizTalk Server.

-          Support for atomic file writing – Can be used to ensure that files are read only after they are transmitted fully to the FTP server.

·         Enhanced performance – Re-designed to increase the performance, both while sending files to as well as receiving files from FTP servers.  The adapter will be more resilient to server going down.
