There are several good BizTalk reference books available, but only one of them addresses BizTalk's Integration capabilities. That book is Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration. This book is more than just another reference book. It starts where the published WCF LOB Documentation leaves off. Each chapter is like a training session.
The chapters in this book are very diverse. They range for developing custom WCF LOB Adapters using the WCF LOB Adapter SDK to integrating with Salesforce.com. Each chapter provides a through description of the LOB Adapter and step-by-step instructions in its use. There are several examples of how the LOB Adapter can be used to solve real business problems. There is source code available for each of the examples.
BizTalk is a complex product that can be overwhelming to those just starting to work with it. I have been working with BizTalk for over nine years and still am still overwhelmed with its capabilities. You can't be an expert on all that BizTalk offers. Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration has provided me with answers to questions that help me solve my client's LOB Integration problems.
The authors are highly recognized as the "LOB Integration Experts". Although I don't know them personally, I have communicated with them and avidly follow their blog postings.
If you are trying to solve LOB Integration problems using BizTalk 2010, Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration is a must buy.
This book focuses on one specific topic: integrating BizTalk with Line of Business systems such as Microsoft Dynamic CRM or Dynamic AX, Microsoft SharePoint, SAP, Salesforce.com or Windows Azure AppFabric. And this is excellent because normally BizTalk books are focus on out-of-box features and capabilities, which is not bad, however, it is almost impossible to detail in depth in one book all the features of this technology and usually only built-in (or native) adapters, like WCF Adapters, are mentioned in this books.
The book, however, is not about one specific suite of adapters: BizTalk Adapter Pack, BizTalk 2010 Adapters; but, as I said earlier, about LoB integration in a general sense, and explain how adapters and other tools are used to achieve this. And let me say to you, it comes with great samples that are easy to implement and understand that illustrates the wide spectrum of approaches and techniques employed in real-world integration.
I really love most everything in this book, there are excellent samples in how to use WCF SQL Adapters to retrieve and manipulate data, but in particularly, the two chapters about SAP Adapter where it is explained in detail the difference between SAP IDOC's, BAPI's and RFC's.
And don't think that this book is only for BizTalk experts it's also ideal for beginners. For BizTalk experts, this is a book you must have! For beginners, they should regard this book as an addition to other books.
Congratulations to the authors, they have done an excellent job, this book is highly recommended.
