New BizTalk Book focused on Line of Business System integration RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Just wanted to announce that a book that deals with BizTalk LOB integration has been recently released and is now available on Amazon and Packt sites.  Myself and 4 others (Richard Seroter, Thiago Almeida, Sergei Moukhnitski and Carl Darski) wrote this book.

    Here is a list of some of the things that you will learn about in the book:

    • Explore some of the inner workings of the WCF LOB SDK and WCF Custom Adapter
    • Learn how to retrieve and manipulate data using popular operations exposed by WCF SQL Adapter
    • Understand some of the technical and political challenges of integrating with SAP
    • Learn the difference between SAP IDOCs, BAPIs and RFCs
    • Discover Microsoft’s AppFabric Service bus and learn how to build BizTalk solutions that complement Microsoft’s Service bus in the Windows Azure Cloud
    • Build integrated SharePoint solutions using the Windows SharePoint Services Adapter and SharePoint Web Services
    • Understand how to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 using the BizTalk adapter and .Net business connector
    • Discover how to establish bi-directional connectivity between CRM and your on-premise services


    You can read more about the book on my blog and can find a sample chapter by following this link.


    If you have any questions about this book feel free to post them.
