This course is designed to introduce developers to the new features of BizTalk Server 2009. It also covers the features which were first introduced in BizTalk Server 2006 R2. The course complements and follows on from the course M2933 'Developing Business Process and Integration Solutions Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006'.
The course begins with a discussion of installing or upgrading to BizTalk Server 2009. You will then see how to use the BizTalk WCF adapters, including the new line-of-business WCF adapters (such as the SQL Server WCF adapter). You will learn to create flexible and dynamic solutions using the new Enterprise Service Bus Toolkit. Electronic Data Interchange is essential for many organisations, and you will discover how BizTalk supports EDI and AS2 processing using both X12 and EDIFACT / EANCOM standards. Finally, you will see how BizTalk RFID Server enables RFID-based solutions, and how to create custom processes for reading, writing and printing RFID tags.
