About the book:

Microsoft BizTalk Server 2000 facilitates the exchange of information between business partners in more or less nonproprietary formats based on XML (extensible markup language). Professional BizTalk documents the software and its related technologies for systems administrators and consultants. That's a fairly bleeding-edge thing to be doing, and in some ways this book reflects the authors' necessarily limited experience with real-life BizTalk implementation work. Still, they know the product well (one of them helped develop it), and the material in the book will be useful to anyone who needs to figure out how to make BizTalk work.

The approach in BizTalk is typically Wroxian in the sense that the presentation consists mainly of text, punctuated by lots of code listings and conceptual diagrams. A fictional case study threads throughout; Bob's Bolts serves as a recurring illustrative tool, providing a framework for specific instructions on what to do (in terms of interface manipulation and coding) to meet various requirements. The book emphasizes that BizTalk is a tool for facilitating commerce, and business considerations are thoroughly discussed as engineering decisions are explained. It's the sort of reasoning that real-world BizTalk consultants will have to keep in mind. --David Wall
