In this session we look at a variety of the third-party tools available in the Windows Azure ecosystem. Included are tools for both developers and IT professionals. We look at tools that will help manage storage and resources, migration, scaling, diagnostics and software components that will help you build cloud applications.

This week Micko and I attended the Microsoft VTSP Summit in Redmond, Seattle. It was great to catch-up with the best-of-the-best when it comes to Integration on the Microsoft platform. Two days of sessions and plenty of good chats about real-world solutions and the future integration landscape.

Micko and I were lucky enough to have been asked to present one of the sessions on the Future Decision Making with Hybrid IT Solutions. We presented a case study of how one of our clients looked to the Windows Azure platform to solve some real-world integration problems utilising a hybrid approach. The season was well received and we certainly had a great time presenting. We even managed to sneak in the use of our “secret squirrel” walkie-talkie watches recently purchased over at Fry’s Electronics (think football field of consumer electronics!).

If you are using BizTalk Server 2010 and wanting to send or receive messages using Windows Azure Service Bus queues, you may find you’re missing the brokered message bindings in the transport properties dialog.

First check you have the Windows Azure Libraries for .NET installed (formally known as Windows Azure AppFabric SDK). Then you’ll need to add a few entries to the machine.config (32-bit and 64-bit) to have these show up:

1. Add the following binding element extension to the <bindingElementExtensions> section

<add name="netMessagingTransport" type="Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.Configuration.NetMessagingTransportExtensionElement, Microsoft.ServiceBus, Version=1.6.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>

 

2. Add the following binding extension to the <bindingExtensions> section

<add name="netMessagingBinding" type="Microsoft.ServiceBus.Messaging.Configuration.NetMessagingBindingCollectionElement, Microsoft.ServiceBus, Version=1.6.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>

Restart the BizTalk Server Administration Console and they’ll show up.
