Eric’s speaking on lots of overview stuff, with just enough technical info to keep it interesting and enough business information to get my juices flowing.
Indigo Day Theme – What should you do today, to prepare for Web Services in the future?
- W3C recommendations are improving, including MTOM and WS-AtomicTransactions.
- Indigo’s 3 areas: Productivity (attribute based, VS integration), Interoperability (WS-* specs), and Service-Oriented Development (loosely coupled, config based communication)
- Lots of focus on the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) support in Indigo.
- Indigo services will be built using VS 2005. Indigo is an extension of the .NET Framework.
Ari Bixhorn’s up for a demo. Got a big ol’ bandage on his head. The demo’s focused on a hospital experience. (Whoops, it’s not a bandage, it’2013-08-28 13:52:37’s the heart rate monitor.)
- Lots of drag/drop, graphical functionality.
- Pretty cool demo, with a heart rate and brain wave monitor.
- Fun demo to watch. He’s changing the Web Services to go over HTTP from TCP.
- Now packets are being dropped, since it’s HTTP over several intermediaries. So, we need reliability.
- He simply adds the reliability attribute (and a security attribute) and bingo! 🙂
- Also, changes the security model using a simple config file. This follows the good SOA model of changing non-business logic stuff in the configuration, not the code.
Eric’s Back Up:
- BizTalk isn’t going away
- 2005 – WSE 1.0 Support
- 2006 – Adapter for Indigo
- Beyond – BizTalk will use Indigo as its foundation
- SQL Server
- Currently – some support
- Later – Indigo programming model layered over Service Broker
- SQL Server vNext – Service Broker uses Indogo transports for WS-* interop
- Windows Sharepoint Services will have a consistent Web Services infrastructure in the future
- VSIP program – 225 Premier and Alliance Partners, and 20,000 affiliates. Yep, the extensibility ROCKS!
- VS2005 Beta2 will be released in March (“maybe not until March 38th or March 45th…”)
Good presentation. I wish I could spend more time in the Indigo sessions. 🙁 But I’ve got to bone up on the new SQL Server 2005 stuff for the ISV Community Days I’ll be doing (beginning this Friday).
