Wish list: optional parameters when using call/start orchestration
I wasn’t sure how bit problem this was, and in any case thought that optional parameters are a VB thing, but I’ve been proven wrong, and not only because optional parameters are soon to become a c# thing :-) When using call/start orchestration we increasingly, as our solution “matures”, find that we need to add optional parameters to our processes.. In c# I was trained that function overloading is the correct way to implement this, and although I can see the benefit of the slim optional parameters ......

Never thought Url would be case sensitive
Working on my Geneva Framework based STS scenario I’ve stumbled into a very weird and annoying case where by if the user typed a Url in the wrong case (compared to the case of the V-Dir) the browser would enter a circular redirect between the STS and the RP. I’ve started a forum thread, which you can find here, that got an answered by Peter Kron from MS through which I’ve learnt that the path portion of a cookie is case sensitive; you can find this in this RFC spec as well (read 3.3.3) - …the old ......

Notes on BizTalk 2009
earlier this week Microsoft announced the release of the beta version of BizTalk 2009. I’m sure detailed posts of various bits will follow soon, but for now I thought I’d list a few points I’ve picked up (in no particular order)- BizTalk projects are now “first class citizens” of Visual Studio [2008]; in practice it seems they are really “special” c# projects. This means quite a lot really, to start with, for the most part they look and feel like c# projects (in the beta build the icon for the project ......

Geneva-based passive STS and .net 2.0 web applications
Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on implementing a Geneva Framework based STS that supports both active and passive scenarios. This is progressing very well and I already have a fairly solid PoC running for both scenarios. Generally, to make any web site participate in the federated identity “dance” all it takes is some configuration on the application’s web.config (separate post coming shortly), but up until today I have only done so for web applications developed as a .net 3.5 project. ......

What I hadn’t appreciated about schema versioning in BizTalk Server
Most people know that when processing a message through the XmlDisassembler, if not explicitly told which schema to use through configuration, the disassembler would try to resolve the correct schema based on the message’s root node and namespace. Most would also know, usually through the experience of getting it wrong so many times first, that if more than one assembly contains the same combination of root node and namespace for a schema, the receive pipeline, containing the disassembler, would ......
