About the Author

Richard Seroter

Richard 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 in the field, working 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.

Format: Paperback
BizTalk and WCF are both broad and deep connected systems technologies. To date, there have been very few books that provide enough context into their integration, while also leaving the reader with real-world tips that provide value. Seroter's "SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009" is one such book. Richard is an accomplished technologist and excellent writer who travels in the right circles. He's respected and recognized by Microsoft team members, and his real-world knowledge of both BizTalk and WCF are demonstrated throughout. The book starts out with a basic coverage of BizTalk, but not at an intro level. I enjoyed the inclusion of and focus upon schema development: BizTalk provides outstanding support for cardinality, enumerations, and other capabilities in Schemas, yet they are rarely used. The coverage of WCF, initially, is not too verbose, nor is it too shallow. Richard clearly addresses the topics that all BizTalk/WCF/Connected Systems developers must face: how do the technologies interact, what are the best bindings to use, how should I structure my projects to promote re-usability, why is abstraction so important, which approach to schema and endpoint versioning is best, when are building canonical schemas considered overkill.

I enjoyed the "Notes" and "Pitfalls" called out throughout the book, including things you'll likely run into, as well as real-world, non-technical examples of abstraction, interoperability, and re-usability. All good talking points for non-technologists, and great analogies for use with clients. The coverage of truly asynchronous messaging is thorough, and there are some really great references throughout (the "Node data type conversion for service clients" table has been bookmarked in my copy since I first read it).

I would say that the main audience for this book is developers with understanding of BizTalk and preferably WCF. Those will get the most value out of it. Administrators, looks elsewhere. Beginners, read another book first, like Professional BizTalk Server 2006, that explains the concepts. Then read this one to learn how to put them together in the most efficient, loosely coupled and change resistent way. Even seasoned BizTalk developers will pick up a thing or two, and get valuable reminders of others.

Most of the knowledge you get from this book is applicable to BizTalk Server 2006 R2 as well, and is valid even though you are not "doing SOA".

Richard has a style of writing that's... entertaining and easy to read. Some books have a tendency to go on and on without really saying too much. Let me assure you, that's not the case here.

Format: Paperback
By far, the best book I've read on BizTalk 2009... This is one of the first books to have come out on BizTalk 2009 and has indepth coverage of advanced topics...

Agreed, this book is not for beginners... It doesn't walk you through creating artifacts but if you already have a knowledge of the biztalk, then this book will help you solidify your concepts and you will learn much more...

This book ain't for beginners!!!

"SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009" by Richard Seroter, review

Questions:
Who is the reader of this book? What is the level of the reader? How good is the book structure?
I think reader should be a seasoned BizTalk developer. It should not be an entry level developer; they must read BizTalk documentation first.
This book is for architects, but for architects with wealthy knowledge of the BizTalk. I suggest it should be a senior level of BizTalk developer, which is equal to an Integration Architect title.
First three and last four chapters of this book you can read only for quick review your knowledge.
I am highly recommending chapters 4 to 7. They are from Richards's wealthy experience. They are the heart and soul of the book. I'd like to see much more such interesting things, maybe in next version of this book?

Is it about BizTalk 2009 or about BizTalk?
Chapters 9 to 12 are about BizTalk 2009 features and tools. Other chapters are not depending on the last version. They are more than that, better than that.

Is it about SOA Patterns?
Yes.

Is it the "recipe" book?
There are several good recipes. But this book is not a recipe book.

Is it the button-to-button book?
No, luckily it isn't.

How is the book covering the material?
