BizTalk Server2009, "OSLO" and .NET


Due to expected “collision”,  BizTalk2006 R3 (BizTalk Server 2006 R3 Announced) development was integrated into the BizTalk2009 development. Some of us might have suspected that already from the Is there a new logo for the IT Products in Microsoft? post a while ago. As such, we should summarize the current situation:

  • Enhanced support for messaging based on Web services
  • Updated SharePoint Server Integration
  • Expanded Business Activity Monitoring
  • BizTalk Adapter Pack
  • WCF Adapter SDK
  • BizTalk Adapters for Host Systems
  • Enterprise Service Bus Guidance [ESB]
  • Enhanced Partner Solutions
  • Partial Support for Workflow Foundation .NET 3.0
Business to Business Integration
  • Integrated Support for EDI and AS2 Protocols
  • Comprehensive RFID Platform Infrastructure
Other Enhancements

Where We Are Going

BizTalk 2009
The next version of BizTalk Server continues to build on the investments made to address the concerns of service oriented architecture and enterprise connectivity.

Updated Platform Support
  • New Application Platform Support
    BizTalk 2009 supports the latest Microsoft platform technologies, including Windows 2008, Visual Studio 2008 SP1, SqlServer 2008 and the .NET 3.5 SP1. These platform updates enable greater scalability and reliability, and many advances in the latest developer tools.

  • New Hyper-V Virtualization Support (BizTalk / Moss Virtualization Issues [Hyper-V])
    BizTalk 2009 now takes advantage of the latest virtualization improvements included as part of Windows 2008 Hyper-V, which can lead to reduced costs through lower hardware, energy, and management overhead, plus the creation of a more dynamic IT infrastructure.

  • Improved Failover Clustering
    By taking advantage of Windows 2008 clustering, BizTalk Server is now able to be deployed in multi-site cluster scenarios, where cluster nodes could reside on separate IP subnets and avoid complicated VLANs.

Service Oriented Architecture and Web Services
  • New Web Services Registry
    BizTalk 2009 includes a UDDI 3.0 registry which provides support for registry affiliation, extended discovery services, digital certificates and extensibility for a subscription API.

  • New Line of Business Adapters
    BizTalk 2009 provides two new adapters for Oracle E-Business Suites and SQL Server, plus additional improvements have been made to the existing set of adapters.

  • Enhanced Host Systems Integration
    BizTalk 2009 adds a new WCF WebSphere MQ channel by providing the transport, data formatter and encoder to integrate directly with WebSphere MQ via WCF and a new WCF Service for Host Applications has been added to expose the traditional Transaction Integrator to .NET Framework developers. Additionally, BizTalk 2009 includes updated platform support for the most recent versions of CICS, IMS, CICS HTTP transport, DB2, DB2/400, DB2 Universal Database, and WebSphere MQ.
    ( as well as TIBCO Chooses Microsoft .NET WCF & Silverlight )

  • Enhanced Business Activity Monitoring
    By expanding the out of the box BAM functionality with SqlServer 2008 Analysis Services, BizTalk 2009 provides support for UDM cubes and scalable real-time aggregations which enhances support for Microsoft PerformancePoint Server 2007.

  • Enhanced Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) Guidance
    ESB Guidance 2.0 delivers updated prescriptive guidance for applying ESB usage patterns, improved itinerary processing, itinerary modeling using a visual Domain Specific Language (DSL) tools approach, a pluggable resolver-adapter pack, and an enhanced ESB management portal.

Business to Business Integration
  • Enhanced Support for EDI and AS2 Protocols
    BizTalk Server 2009 provides support for multiple message attachments, configurable auto message resend, end-to-end filename preservation, improved reporting to address new features, and Drummond re-certification for AS2.

  • Updated SWIFT Support
    By building on a rich SWIFT foundation, BizTalk 2009 updates all message schemas and business rules for compliance with SWIFTReady Financial EAI Gold certification, as a result adds support for SWIFT FIN Flat File message types and business rules, BIC Plus IBAN interface, and Extensibility to support SEPA Routing.

Device Connectivity
  • New Mobile RFID Platform and device management
    BizTalk 2009 delivers a new lightweight platform for a variety of mobile devices, which simplifies the development of mobile applications that expose relevant, real-time business information. BizTalk RFID Mobile includes support for enhanced device management, Powershell support for administration of edge infrastructures and the ability to monitor RFID infrastructure using System Center Operations Manager 2007.

  • New RFID industry standards support
    Support for key industry standards (including LLRP, TDT, TDS, WS Discovery and partial EPCIS support).

Developer and Team Productivity
  • New Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) support
    BizTalk 2009 provides support for Team Foundation Server (TFS), and allows development teams to be able to leverage the integrated source control, bug tracking, support for team development, Project Server integration and support for automating builds via MSBuild.

  • Enhanced Developer Productivity
    BizTalk 2009 introduces a number of improvements have been made to the underlying Visual Studio based BizTalk project system which enhances debugging support for artifacts such as BizTalk Maps (XSLT), pipeline components and XLANG Orchestrations, and enables support for unit testing via Visual Studio Test.

Other Enhancements
  • Messaging
    BizTalk 2009 improves recoverable interchange processing of validation failures by providing support for recoverable interchange processing for disassembly (DASM) and a validation stage within the pipeline. The WCF Adapter has been enhanced to provide support for configurable transactions and the ability to choose the transaction isolation level in the WCF-Custom Send Adapter.

  • Administration
    By continuing to build on the improvements to the BizTalk Management Console made in BizTalk 2006 R2, two new query types have been added for tracked message events and tracked service events which consolidates all queries – tracked/archived data, live data and specialized EDI reports, into a single tool.

"Oslo" is the codename for Microsoft’s forthcoming modeling platform. Modeling is used across a wide range of domains and allows more people to participate in application design and allows developers to write applications at a much higher level of abstraction. "Oslo" delivers a new integrated platform for connecting across modeling domains, including a new "Oslo" modeling tool, an "Oslo" modeling language, and an "Oslo" repository. As we gathered feedback from BizTalk customers, they indicated they would prefer to take a disciplined, evolutionary path to adopting some of these newer platform technologies. We have thousands of customers that have deployed mission-critical applications on top of our BizTalk Server architecture; they want to decide for themselves when to move to newer versions of the platform.
