Two new ESB Toolkit videos now live (incl a really cool BizTalk demo)

As part of the recent BizTalk Server 2009 “First Look” tour I did in the US Southwest district, I developed a demo application that brought together some of the techniques I have used on client projects over the years, and the new ESB Toolkit 2.0. I did so in what I think is a very approachable and easy-to-understand way.

I recorded two of the demos, and they are now available at MSDN.

In my opinion, the most important of these is the “Order Demo” video. It showcases how we can leverage the Microsoft stack to easily assemble comprehensive solutions that meet business needs. That’s marketing speak for “cool stuff that’s a pattern you can use to do things things you need to do”. This is about 20 or so minutes long, and I would encourage all BizTalk architects/developers to check it out, as it may show you capabilities many don’t know they have. You can even show this one to your manager and they’ll get it! the video is available at

The second video walks through the itinerary designer experience, showing how itineraries can be built and deployed, and rolls in UDDI and design-time resolution. The video is available at

I’m planning to do a blog post around the BAM portion of the Order Demo. I came up with a way to implement that which I have never used before, and I’m guessing many people haven’t thought of it either. As SharePoint usage expands around the world, techniques like this become an increasingly powerful tool.

awesome posts! the Order Processing one was super cool.
it would be even better if you were able to publish your code, especially the BAM / Sharepoint graphs / and reports etc. that's the only part of that video that I don't know how to implement myself.

otherwise awesome!
keep them coming

Thanks for the comments.

Yeah, I'm thinking of packaging it up for download, but that'll means I need time to do scripts, docs, etc. Want to beta-test the install process? :)

Same goes to anyone else here: if you'd like to test the deployment of this please drop me a note through the "contact me" above.
