FarPoint Spread for BizTalk 2006 

Friday, September 05, 2008 10:37:07 AM

May 2008, the DFWCSUG had Robby Powell present on FarPoint Spread for BizTalk 2006, which is a spreadsheet pipeline disassembler and pipeline assembler component for BizTalk.  We set a record turnout of attendees for this presentation and at the end there were numerous questions that Robby answered.  There were more than just a few people to comment that could have used this product to simplify processing on past and current jobs.  Be sure to try it out.  You can download a trial at ftp://ftp.fpoint.com/transfer/fpspbizv2.0.7-trial.zip.

Speaker Bio

Anderson is a developer for Mary Kay and an active member of Microsoft's Connected Technology Advisor program. Anderson is currently delivering software solutions built on .NET, including Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Workflow. You can learn more about Anderson from his blog http://theimes.com/.


In the past, raising events and communicating from the outside into a running workflow was difficult to understand and to manage. With .NET 3.5, though, Microsoft has blurred the lines between Windows Communication Foundation and Workflow Foundation, giving you the same great homogeneous communication model with workflow as you do a WCF service.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • How to implement a WCF service declaratively, using WF
  • How to create long-running operations that could span weeks, months, or years
  • New bindings in WCF for use in and out of WF
  • Tips to make sure your transition to .NET 4.0 WF is painless
