Biztalk newbie - installation on workstation, admin task questions and logic apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im going through the excellent  pluralsight biztalk course with the goal of at least being able to have intelligent conversations about this area, even though we use a 3rd party company to handle our Biztalk development.  My company uses biztalk server now, but only for integration with a few vendors.  However, we really dont have anyone with experience or know-how to even look into issues when they come up without calling our support even for the small stuff - so its on me! Also, Im now looking it much closer for the rules processing, including logic apps and the azure/cloud aspect.

    A few questions:

    - Can I install the standard edition on my workstation ?

    - Can someone list a bare-bones set of things you might want to do with Biztalk from powershell?  I want to be able to do several of the things Ive done already, but without remoting into a server.  Searching for artifacts, restarting various bits etc.

    - This might be the subject of another post.  As a developer I find logic apps very interesting and see this area potentially exploding! With Workflow I have built a small rules engine for an app I was working on a while back, however giving someone without visual studio the ability to edit a workflow was limited.  What I had with that project was simple, but it worked.  For another project I will need a bit more complex solution.  In my research I keep coming back to Biztalk 2016 rules engine.  See this example   http://www.johnluangco.com/2015/10/azure-biztalk-rules-getting-started.html
    Can I use Rules on premises as well and can the editing of a rule be externalized in some fashion without requiring someone to remote into a server?
