CloudCasts Blog Webcasts in the Cloud
As BizTalk Server 2009 is due for release in the not too distant, I thought I’d take the time to run off a few more BizTalk webcasts. I’ll be starting with a basic one looking at calling WCF services from an orchestration using the Service Aggregator pattern, and then look at improving the design to make it more efficient and reliable in future webcasts.
This webcast will look at implementing a service aggregator pattern to call three WCF services that will book a hotel, flight and conference for attendees of a conference. The design will be kept simple for now, and will be optimized and made more reliable in future webcasts.
Level: 200
In this webcast you will see
·         Adding WCF service references
·         Creating a service aggregator
·         Calling WCF services from an orchestration
·         Creating WCF send ports
The link to the webcast is here.
More BizTalk webcasts are here. also has Dublin, WCF/WF, Oslo and Azure webcasts.

Hi Alan,
Your webcasts are greate!
I would like to "try the same" and have a question. Or two.

Q1: Looking at your Visual Studio and it looks to me as if your ServiceAggregator-Solution consists of a C#-WindowsFormApplication ServiceAggregator-project. How do you add an orchestration to a C#-project? When I try to "Add New item..." in my vs2008 C#-project, no orchestration template is there for me, I can choose only from "regular" c#-templates.

Q2: I have an orchestration (BizTalk 2009, vs2008) that is going to consume a "non-WCF"-service. What is the best way to take advantage of WCF in such case, do you think?

Hey, thanks for those links. They do provide a good overview. I just viewed them before trying BizTalk 2009.
