ESB Toolkit 2.0 released


Good news that the BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0 (previously known as ESB Guidance 2.0) has been released for download.

The download is no longer published on CodePlex. Now you can download it from the BizTalk Developer Center. Changes in the name and the download links have a good reason: now it’s supported by Microsoft.

Even if you are new to BizTalk or have no experience with Enterprise Service Bus pattern, it really worth to have a look at it.

I’m gonna copy/paste some features from the ESB site:

· Endpoint run-time discovery and virtualization

· Loosely coupled service composition

· Dynamic message transformation and translation

· Dynamic routing

· Centralized exception management

· Quality of service

· Protocol transformation

· Extensibility
