.NET Framework 4.0 = "BizTalk/SOA Express Framework" ? PART3
Well, what can I say, it all started with a gut feeling, or revelation , which ever you feel more commutable, on an early morning of a Saturday, drinking my usual morning coffee got me thinking , and resulted in this post .NET Framework 4.0 = "BizTalk/SOA Express Framework" ?. After a while, the more I thought about it, the more I felt more confident with the idea so I continued my journey with .NET Framework 4.0 = "BizTalk/SOA Express Framework" ? PART2. And now, just like the fact that it took some time between DieHard 2 and DieHard 3 ( the 4th would be after the release of .NET 4.0 ), here comes after a while the 3rd part in the series.
So what made me return to this subject ? Well two things :
- .NET 4.0, WF/WCF, and Oslo , a post which explains what is expected in the next version of .NET , especially in the context of WCF & WF.
The main sentences I liked were: ".NET 4.0 which will be the next major side-by-side release of .NET Framework since .NET 2.0." and ".NET 4.0 will contain major improvements in both WF and WCF. The two will be integrated seamlessly together from the programming model to the runtime. Workflows and services are tightly coupled and both can be declaratively modeled by XAML." did I just hear BizTalk XLANG in XAML ? does that not just shout out ?
- BizTalk Server2009, "Oslo" and .NET my own compilation of the BizTalk Server roadmap which shows a "short" summary of the Next BizTalk Platform.
Now all you have to do is go to the upcoming PDC and when you fly back home you are more then welcome to reflect on why I might be wrong ?
