About the Author

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/

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

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?

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?

Over the last weeks after finishing my collaboration with the ESB Toolkit project, I had the chance to read a great book on Biztalk called SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009 by Richard Seroter, an authority on BizTalk topics.

The book discusses in a very comprehensive and well structured way the core principles of SOA and how to get a great synergy with WCF Adapters with samples on implementation of synchronous and asynchronous communication patterns. In particular I was more biased to focus on chapter 11 where it is described the ESB Toolkit[...].

The first thing I noticed was that the chapter was based on the CTP2 version of the toolkit. Nevertheless, the overall structure and samples are pretty good and follow basically the general approach. Naturally some details and parts had changed since that version of the toolkit and in particular the licensing area where now it DOES have official Microsoft support as a product (Biztalk Server 2009).

After that I also found that Richard also posted in his blog some comments and samples regarding the final version like the presentation of the latest ESB Toolkit version or this great sample about executing multiple maps in sequence (Notice that this sample shows some screenshots of the new Itinerary Designer). [...]

I recommend this book to all Biztalk audiences in particular if you want to build maintainable mission critical based solutions.

I build mission-critical BizTalk based solutions for Microsoft Consulting Services and I was delighted to find Mr Seroter's book and to get a chance to review. This book is well written and easy to read. It provides the reader with a different way to consider the design of BizTalk Server based solutions which provides more protection from change. By taking a dynamic, rather than the traditional static approach, solutions designed following the patterns in the book can better stand the test of time and bring far more value to organizations. This book and the ideas within will change the way you think about BizTalk based solutions, forever! My hat is off to Mr Seroter!!
