This article by Andrew Mallet, author of Citrix Access Gateway VPX 5.04 Essentials, we will explain Citrix Access Gateway in detail.
If you have ever tried navigating the range of products and vendor websites, you will be able to sympathize with those poor souls trying to come to terms with all of the different options that Citrix has for the Access Gateway products. So many choices! Soon, you will also find out that the costs of these products will vary from nothing to many thousands of dollars. The aim of this introduction is to help you become familiar with the range and make some informed decisions about which product is right for you. We will work with the VPX edition (virtual appliance); however, most of the configuration remains consistent between the models. Additionally, at this stage, we also need to show you where Citrix Access Gateway (CAG) will fit into your corporate remote access and security environment.
Specifically, in this article, the following topics will be looked at in detail:
Security and Remote Access solutions addressed by CAG
Citrix Access Gateway hardware
Citrix Access Gateway specifications
Citrix Access Gateway versions
Citrix Access Gateway VPX
Designing a secure Remote Access solution
Let's take a look at the life cycle of services in an SOA. Controlling and communicating the life cycle is important in your organization. Consumers need to know the stage of a service, to decide whether they can use it. Providers need to keep track of versions and support changes that are requested by consumers, without creating chaos or a big financial burden caused by supporting too many versions at the same time. Tooling can help keep track of the services in your organization, including their stage and version.
In this article by Lonneke Dikmans and Ronald van Luttikhuizen, authors of SOA Made Simple , you will learn how to control the service life cycle and versions in your SOA and understand the role tooling plays in this process.Read Life Cycle Management in full
This article by Gary P. Gauvin, author of Instant Team Foundation Server 2012 and Project Sever 2010 Integration How-to helps us examine what's needed to ensure that that your integration is successful. It covers the prerequisites and the planning needed to begin, scenarios for various environments, and a few tips to set you up for success.

Inter-process Communication introduces us to the theory of how processes can communicate with each other and with other components. A number of topics are covered such as: conversations—what they are, and the default conversation.
Welcome to our exploration of some of the advanced topics in BPMN. When we set out to write this book, we chose the areas where we see the most confusion and difficulty in understanding how to use BPMN. We will present theory and also build practical exercises together so that you can see how the theory is applied. Let's start our journey by building an understanding of inter-process communication.Read Inter-process Communication in full

This article by A.P. Rajshekhar, author of .Net Framework 4.5 Expert Programming Cookbook , will cover recipes related to core concepts in .NET, which will include the following:
Metadata-driven programming: The first six recipes will cover how to use attributes as metadata for specific purposes such as validation and localization.
Reflection: The Processing custom attributes via reflection recipe will tell you how to use reflection to create metadata processors such as applications or libraries that can understand custom attributes and provide the output based on them.
Asynchronous file I/O: This is a new feature for file input/output introduced in .NET 4.5. The Using asynchronous file I/O for directory-to-directory copy recipe will cover this feature.
Dynamic programming: .NET 4.0 introduced the concept of dynamic programming, in which blocks of code marked as dynamic will be executed directly, bypassing the compilation phase. We will look at this in the last recipe, Accessing JSON using dynamic programming.
