Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration

Microsoft BizTalk 2010 Line of Business Systems Integration


Kent Weare, Carl Darski, Thiago Almeida, Sergei Moukhnitski and Richard Seroter

Book Description

Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration will be a tutorial that focuses on integrating BizTalk with Line of Business systems using practical scenarios. Each chapter will take a Line of Business Adapter, introduce some pre-requisite knowledge and demonstrate how you can integrate BizTalk with that Line of Business Adapter, and then provide guidance based upon real-world experience, taking your BizTalk knowledge further. The book will take “perceived” daunting scenarios, like integrating with SAP and provide readers with a clear tutorial that walks them through integrating Line of Business systems. This book focuses on Microsoft BizTalk 2010; however, most of the concepts and explanations will apply to BizTalk 2006 R2 and BizTalk 2009. If you are an experienced BizTalk developer who wants to integrate BizTalk with Line of Business systems using practical scenarios, then this book is for you. A solid understanding of BizTalk at an intermediate level is required. This book assumes developers are comfortable creating schemas, maps, orchestrations, ports, and messages in Visual Studio and configuring applications in the BizTalk Administration Console. However, experience in integrating with Line of Business systems is not necessarily required.

  1. Hi,

    Great list, there’s a couple of older books I would also recommend:

    Professional BizTalk Server 2006:

    It’s an old book, but there is a lot of deep coverage of BizTalk internals. I still think its the best BizTalk book ever, but I’m hoping 2010 Unleashed will beat it.

    SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009:

    Great coverage of using the WCF adapters in BizTalk, and a look at the WCF-SQL adapter and ESB toolkit.



  2. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  3. Good idea if we can have free e-book topic wise in this blog…for more details indivisual can go thro the books themselves,for small topic and interesting/advance part of the book can be viewed and appearciated…thank in adv

  4. Thanks for the tip! Already have two of them but will look in to the others.

    right now though Im all in for the Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010 Certification Guide 🙂
