Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration
This book focuses on Microsoft BizTalk 2010; however, most of the concepts and explanations will apply to BizTalk 2006 R2 and BizTalk 2009. If you are an experienced BizTalk developer who wants to integrate BizTalk with Line of Business systems using practical scenarios, then this book is for you. A solid understanding of BizTalk at an intermediate level is required. This book assumes developers are comfortable creating schemas, maps, orchestrations, ports and messages in Visual Studio and configuring applications in the BizTalk Administration Console. However, experience in integrating with Line of Business systems is not necessarily required.

About Kent Weare
Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, Kent Weare developed a love for ice hockey, football and technology. He attended the University of Regina where he obtained a Degree in Computer Science. After completing his undergrad degree, he spent time in India completing a Post Graduate diploma in Object Oriented Technology. He currently lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada but remains a die-hard Saskatchewan Roughrider football fan. Kent began his career at a small Internet startup before taking on a junior roll with the Saskatchewan Government. Since then he has worked on projects for the Canadian Federal Government, a multi-national bank in the United States, Health Care projects in Eastern and Western Canada, and has spent the last five years employed by a large Electricity Distribution company in Calgary. Kent's current responsibilities involve managing a Microsoft Solutions team that supports BizTalk, Exchange, Office Communication Server (OCS) and System Center. During Kent's time at the Federal Government, he had an opportunity to participate in his first BizTalk project. Seven years later he is still "hooked" on BizTalk having worked with every BizTalk version released since. In 2008, Kent was awarded his first Microsoft MVP award for BizTalk Server. He continues to be active in the BizTalk community and recently received his fourth consecutive MVP award. Kent maintains an active blog at http://kentweare.blogspot.com and may be seen presenting BizTalk related material at local and international user groups. Richard Seroter is a solutions architect for an industry-leading biotechnology company, a Microsoft MVP for BizTalk Server, and a Microsoft Connected Systems Advisor. He has spent the majority of his career consulting with customers as they planned and implemented their enterprise software solutions. Richard worked first for two global IT consulting firms, which gave him exposure to a diverse range of industries, technologies, and business challenges. Richard then joined Microsoft as a SOA/BPM technology specialist where his sole objective was to educate and collaborate with customers as they considered, designed, and architected BizTalk solutions. One of those customers liked him enough to bring him onboard full time as an architect after they committed to using BizTalk Server as their enterprise service bus. Once the BizTalk environment was successfully established, Richard transitioned into a solutions architect role where he now helps identify enterprise best practices and applies good architectural principles to a wide set of IT initiatives. Richard maintains a semi-popular blog of his exploits, pitfalls, and musings with BizTalk Server and enterprise architecture at http://seroter.wordpress.com. The authors have provided a website with further information about the book here: http://appliedarchitecturepatterns.com/ Sergei Moukhnitski is a software architect with 15 years of experience developing software and systems. His area of professional interests is business process and integration technologies applied to ERP and CRM systems such as Microsoft Dynamics and SAP. This book will be a tutorial that focuses on integrating BizTalk with Line of Business systems using practical scenarios. Each chapter will take a Line of Business Adapter, introduce some pre-requisite knowledge and demonstrate how you can integrate BizTalk with that Line of Business Adapter, and then provide guidance based upon real world experience, taking your BizTalk knowledge further. The book will take "perceived" daunting scenarios, like integrating with SAP, and provide readers with a clear tutorial that walks them through integrating Line of Business systems.
