              Andrés Del Río Benito

              Andrés Del Río Benito has been working with BizTalk since 2004, and all the way through all its versions until BizTalk 2010. Over the years, he has played the role of developer, consultant, architect, and development lead in different projects, and has also been the official BizTalk trainer for different teams across Accenture CIO and Avanade Spain.

              Apart from working with BizTalk, he has spent many years in the Avanade and Accenture CIO Enterprise Architecture teams involved in different initiatives not only around BizTalk but also many other technologies along the Microsoft Stack. This was until he left Spain (and so Avanade/Accenture) with his wife to find new challenges in London; here, after spending some time as a BizTalk contractor for Microsoft UK, he currently works for BBC Worldwide as a Solutions Architect.

              Most of Howard's BizTalk career has been in contract work, which has allowed him to utilize almost all of BizTalk's capabilities. Last year Howard established his own consulting company, the Edidin Group Inc. in order to expand the services he provides.

              Howard has been very active in the BizTalk community. He has contributed several articles to the TechNet Wiki, provided answers to questions on the LinkedIn BizTalk Groups, contributes to several BizTalk Administration blogs, and maintains his own blog.

              In Detail

              An Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) is an architectural pattern and a key enabler in implementing the infrastructure for a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The BizTalk ESB Toolkit is a collection of tools and libraries that extend the BizTalk Server capabilities of supporting a loosely coupled and dynamic messaging architecture. It functions as middleware that provides tools for rapid mediation between services and their consumers. Enabling maximum flexibility at runtime, the BizTalk ESB Toolkit simplifies loosely coupled composition of service endpoints and management of service interactions. The thing about the technology that gets most readers excited is how easy it is to quickly implement flexible and well-architected ESB solutions.

              "Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010 ESB Toolkit 2.1" provides you with an easy-to-follow view of the tools and services that make up the toolkit. The content is packed with practical examples on how to utilize the technology, which will be appealing to the readers. This book provides you with all the information you need in one publication. The content is based on practical examples on how to use the technology to make it easier for readers to follow.

              This book starts off with a quick, high level introduction to ESB architectural principles, how these principles map into the ESB toolkit features, and an introduction to the different components that provide those features. The book then reveals the ins and outs of Itineraries. Next, you’ll get engaged in the different ways errors can be handled and monitored by means of the ESB Toolkit features. There will be a hands-on sample on building a custom Repair and Resubmit solution to reprocess failed messages. Get to know the different web services that expose the ESB Toolkit features to external applications and how to use them with quick samples. The book ends with a preview to the new version of the toolkit.


              A practical guide into the architecture and features that make up the services and components of the ESB Toolkit.
