BizTalk 2020 Developer Deep Dive Course Outline
As a BizTalk Server developer, you know that learning BizTalk Server can be difficult. You've seen the power of BizTalk Server and know that there's more waiting for you to tap into. Our can take you from novice to expert in just five days of training!
This course is designed specifically for experienced BizTalk Server developers and focuses on best practices & pattern-based design while pulling back the curtain on some of BizTalk Server's eccentricities. This course gives the deepest coverage of the BizTalk Server development topics that you need to know. We guarantee to challenge the way you think about BizTalk Server application design and development.
In this 5-day course, you will learn how to apply best practices and design patterns to build smarter BizTalk Server applications. Furthermore, this course provides extensive coverage of BizTalk Server's extensibility, including such topics as: custom functoids, custom pipeline components, and invoking external .NET methods.
This course is intended for previous attendees of our BizTalk Server Developer Immersion course who have at least one year of hands-on experience developing BizTalk Server application solutions and wish to deepen their existing skill and knowledge.
In this course, attendees will receive live instruction from one of our expert trainers, demonstrations, challenging hands-on labs, and an electronic copy of the presentation materials and lab guide with hands-on activities.
This is an advanced-level course. Attendees are expected to have working experience as BizTalk Server application developers. The lectures and labs in this course assume that attendees have been through the typical lifecycle of a BizTalk Server application at least once.
At the completion of this course, attendees will be able to:
Create and implement custom simple and complex types in schemas
Call external assemblies using the Scripting Functoid
Create custom functoids
Test BizTalk Server code artifacts using Visual Studio tests
Create messaging solutions that de-batch flat-file & XML interchanges
Build processes that subscribe to failed messages
Create custom pipeline components
Publish and host RESTful APIs using the WCF-WebHttp adapter
Integrate with SQL Server databases using the WCF-SQL adapter
Create loosely coupled orchestrations using direct-bound ports
Properly utilize the Call Orchestration and Start Orchestration shapes
Develop applications that utilize dynamic send ports
Implement complex orchestration patterns, including: external code invocation, convoys, transactions and compensation, and exception handling
Aggregate message instances using an orchestration & send pipeline
Create a role- and party-based integration solution
Create business-rule vocabularies and polices
Create EDI-based solutions to receive, send, and batch messages
Create custom tracking solutions using Business Activity Monitoring
