BizTalk 2004 together with Visual Studio 2005

“.Net assemblies can be deployed and run side by side” - remember this sentence? Well, in general it is true, but there are some caveats you have to remember. First one, web applications are usually bound to some version of .Net runtime. So, if you install .Net framework 2.0 and in the same time BizTalk 2004 wizard relies on .Net framework 1.1 - there will be a confuse definitelly, when publishing orchestrations as web services.

Certified Code Churning Professional

I liked the new sort of a “Certified Code Churning Professional” “certification” mentioned in Neno’s blog. There are two fun things. First - the image itself (you can find it in the Neno’s blog).

I think mostly my first impressions were caused by the fact that I was showing the ability to launch exe’s from a web page, which is totally nice.

On 10th of November we had a new product line launch. There was a bunch of presenters (including me of course) and a lot of slides and demos about the Visual Studio .Net 2005 (including the Team system), SQL Server 2005 and a bit about the BizTalk Server 2006. My presentation for the professional was the last one, but covering all the product line. There were some questions during the presentation.
