BizTalk Server: ESB Survival Guide

BizTalk Server: ESB Survival Guide

Introduction

The BizTalk ESB Toolkit provides architectural guidance, patterns, and a collection of BizTalk Server and .NET Framework components to simplify the development of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) on the Microsoft platform and to allow Microsoft customers to extend their own messaging and integration solutions.

BizTalk Server 2013 now comes with ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.2. Installation of the toolkit has become easier than with earlier version of BizTalk Server, as it is integrated in the setup of BizTalk Server 2013.

The ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1 uses BizTalk Server 2010 to support a loosely coupled messaging architecture. BizTalk Server includes a powerful publish/subscribe mechanism for messaging applications that works by creating and filling subscriptions, which provides a highly efficient and scalable platform for service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications.

The ​Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1 extends the functionality of BizTalk Server to provide a range of new capabilities focused on building robust, connected, service-oriented applications that incorporate itinerary-based service invocation for lightweight service composition, dynamic resolution of endpoints and maps, Web service and WS-* integration, fault management and reporting, and integration with third-party SOA governance solutions.
