Description

Ever since its first release, the Enterprise Service Bus guidance for BizTalk 2006 R2 has been an important yet often misunderstood aspect of many BizTalk Server Solutions. This course will take a look at when to use the EBS and the value it adds to a BizTalk solution. It will take a deeper look at how to setup an ESB solution and how to use the ESB Exception framework.

Overview of the ESB Toolkit for BizTalk Server
Hello. My name is Stephen Thomas, and this course is called Intro to BizTalk Server Enterprise Service Bus Toolkit. This is Module 1. In this module, we're going to walk through an overview of the ESB Toolkit for BizTalk Server. Here's an overview of this module. First off, we're going to talk about the course outline. Next, we're going to spend some time talking about what is an ESB. After we've defined what an ESB is, we're going to talk a look at why a traditional BizTalk solution generally doesn't fit those guidelines of what we think of as an ESB. Then we're going to look at when should we use BizTalk as an ESB? Once we've decided the scenarios to use BizTalk as an ESB, there is a great toolkit to help us get started, which is called the BizTalk ESB toolkit. We're going to take a look at what is composed in this toolkit. A lot of positive things tend to have some disadvantages as well. We're going to talk about some of the disadvantages of the BizTalk ESB toolkit as it stands today. There's also a lot of controversy around the ESB toolkit, both from seasoned BizTalk developers, and from new developers alike, and we're going to try to understand why there's so much controversy over it. And last, we're going to do a demo of doing an installation and configuration of the BizTalk ESB toolkit. At the end of this module, you should have a fully functional, running BizTalk environment, running the ESB toolkit, and the sample management portal.

Inside the ESB Toolkit Components
Hello. My name is Stephen Thomas, and this course is called Intro to BizTalk Server 2013 Enterprise Service Bus Toolkit. This is Module 2. In this module, we're going to take a look at inside the ESB toolkit components. Before we get started, I wanted to spend a few minutes talking about how this module's laid out. First off, this is really more of a reference module. We're going to review core information related to the Enterprise Service Bus Toolkit. We're going to look at the core components, how they're used, and when best to use them. In the next module, we're going to actually use the components that we walk through in this module to build out a real life scenario. Here's an overview of this module. First, we're going to start off by looking at why some of this stuff is so confusing to so many people. I'm going to walk you through why I found things so confusing. Next, we're going to take a look at the high-level architecture of the ESB toolkit. After that, we're going to go into detail reviewing all of the core ESB components. And last, we're going to take a look at a quick demo walking through these components inside a live ESB environment.

Deep Dive into an ESB Solution
This course is called Intro to BizTalk Server 2013 Enterprise Service Bus Toolkit. This is Module 3, Deep Dive into an ESB Solution. Let's get started by first looking at an overview of this module. First off, we're going to do a scenario walk through. We're going to outline the business requirements that need to be met in order for us to deliver a quality solution. Then we're going to take a look at the design decisions that would go in to building out our solution. After that, we're going to do a demo overview. And last, we're going to take a look at the four parts of this demo to actually build our working ESB solution.

Using the ESB Exception Framework
Hello. This is Stephen Thomas, and this is Module 4 on my course Intro to BizTalk Server 2013 Enterprise Service Bus Toolkit. In this module, we're going to take a look at using the ESB Exception Framework. Let's get started with an overview of this module. First off, we're going to take a look at the current support for exception handling inside and out of the box of BizTalk server. Next, we're going to take a look at the gaps in this exception process. With that, we're going to introduce what is the exception management framework. This is also known as the EMF. After we take a look at the exception management framework, we're going to take a look at how to submit messages using the sample management portal. Given that the portal is just a sample portal, we need to make some simple enhancements to make submitting messages a much easier task. After we make changes to our portal, we're going to take a look at how to use the EMF with an Enterprise Service Bus base solution, and then we're going to see a demo about how messages will show up in the management portal, and how we can resubmit them. After we've take a look at the ESB base solution, we're going to take a look at a basic orchestration solution. In this orchestration, we're going to add support for the exception management framework. Next, we're going to take a look at how third party systems can also use the exception management framework. And last, we're going to see a summary of everything we've covered in this module.
