Steve Maine’s got a good take on the next generation of Code Jedis.
Implementing Secure Business Transactions Across Organizations MSDN (November 2003, Online Book)
Demonstrates how you can use the features of the Web Services Enhancements for Microsoft .NET 1.0 (WSE) to create secure Web services that implement business transactions across organizations. WSE is an implementation of the Web Services Architecture specifications that define standards for the development and deployment of Web services. This book shows how you can integrate BizTalk Server 2002, Web services, and WSE to create secure and adaptable B2B Web services.
Periodically, Microsoft and Microsoft Consulting augment the documentation for Windows Server System products by publishing online books. Check these links periodically, or you can subscribe to the RSS Feed for MSDN Just Published items.
I attended the Redmond version of ASP.Net Exposed tonight. It was originally scheduled for 3 hours, and Scott Guthrie went on for over 4 and 1/2 hours, talking about ASP.Net for Developers and demonstrating the Post-Alpha build of Whidbey, the next version of Visual Studio.Net. (This build is newer than the version released at PDC2003). Amazing stuff.
If the ASP.Net Exposed road trip is coming to a city near you, please take the time to attend.
