Book Description

Oct. 31 2006 1590596994 978-1590596999 1st ed 2007. Corr. printing

BizTalk automates and manages business processes.

Pro BizTalk 2006 is based on feedback from the BizTalk developer community. We asked developers what other books lacked and addressed those topics. For example, why BizTalk works the way it does is not always intuitive and this can cause serious problems when it's implemented in the workplace. The book begins with a detailed explanation of how BizTalk works and why. It also covers performance tuning and includes scripts and code that have been used in real business settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book every serious BizTalk developer must own Nov. 14 2006
This book is an in-depth look into the BizTalk Server 2006 product. Although I use the product since years (back to BizTalk 2004), I realized that I still had things to learn from it, thanks to this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, Insightful and Essential Oct. 24 2006
By Richard L. Seroter - Published on
I spend 40-60 hours a week working with BizTalk Server 2006 and helping my customers understand how to architect and build viable solutions. That said, I wondered if I could read a BizTalk book that actually taught me something I hadn't already come across. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to find this book to be such a fantastic resource of new ideas.

The chapters on architectural best practices, naming standards, engine internals, pipeline components (zip and PGP!) were worth the price of the book alone. Add the indispensable chapter on tuning (everything from the adapters to CLR) and you've got a book that has to be on everyone's shelf. While not for beginners, this book is valuable even to the most seasoned developer. I just finished buying 50 copies to give away to my local customers.

This book expands on the introduction to orchestrations and other key BizTalk components given in the Foundations book. Personally I think that this combined with the Foundations book sets you up nicely to start doing some serious BizTalk work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pro BizTalk 2006 for the Novice and Expert Feb. 26 2007
By John Bailey - Published on
Every so often a book comes along which transcends the technology that it is intended to explain. If you are a BizTalk novice, this seminal work is for you. With a self-deprecating style, the authors guide you through the wide and deep integration waters. They tell you just enough so that you can be proficient and yet feel comfortable that you have chosen the correct course. What you might not know is that the authors are building a framework for you to develop the best solutions going forward. For the expert, the authors have redefined what it means to orchestrate the integration space and to use a product to its maximum utility and purpose. I support both small and enterprise BizTalk customers every day. I can't recommend this book enough!
5.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for BizTalk developers Nov. 3 2006
By T. Wieman - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I work with customers using BizTalk almost every day. This is a must-have book, and I am recommending it to each of them. One customer even found sample pipeline component code in this book to solve the exact business problem they needed to solve.

I have not read this book cover-to-cover, but the parts I have read are excellent. It is well worth the read and a great book to have for reference on your BizTalk bookshelf. Most, if not everyone, will learn something new from this book.
