Microsoft Rolls Out BizTalk Framework 2.0

Microsoft Corp. today released a draft of Microsoft BizTalk Framework 2.0. The newest version of BizTalk Framework has been redefined to be Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) 1.1-compliant, allowing BizTalk Framework XML documents to travel over a network in the form of SOAP messages.

In addition, BizTalk Framework 2.0 has been extended to include specifications for reliable server-to-server messaging. Multi-part MIME encoding guidelines have been added to the framework to support the inclusion of one or more non-XML attachments within a BizTalk message. Microsoft's forthcoming BizTalk Server 2000 will support BizTalk Framework 2.0 as the protocol for interoperability over the Internet.

The new BizTalk Framework utilized standard Internet technologies such as XML and MIME to provide the specifications for XML-based integration within and between organizations. The support for SOAP 1.1 specification, which was recently submitted to and acknowledged by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C, www.w3c.org), will allow developers to create applications and services that can be more easily integrated, regardless of operating system, programming model, or programming language.

The new reliable messaging capabilities in BizTalk Framework 2.0 allow organizations to reliably transmit information via the Internet using standard transport protocols such as HTTP and SMTP. The inclusion of support for Multi-part MIME provides guidelines for encoding and decoding of one or more non-XML attachments within a BizTalk XML message. - Isaac Slepner
