Interesting conversations going around on high level business processing language…
Here are the links for you people interested in it (Yes I am archiving more than a
year of blogs, thanks to Lookout i can actually find the entries i need when i create
a list like this one):
Nagel: “BOA will integrate the business aspects with SOA.”
Rammer: “What I like about Boa is
that it doesn't constrict you.”
Lowy: “Clearly BOA will use standard patterns like Indigo Marks. I don’t
think that BML (pronounced bimmel, Business Markup Language. XML for MBAs) is
something we should care about because I really hope for some visual tool to do that
for me. Like Clemens said, anything more and I would be killed.”
Gentile: “Quite interesting as Viper turned into MTS, arguably the first
real AOP implementation which turned into COM+. This bears watching.”
Vasters: “Don elaborated a bit on the "Business Agents" idea he'd been
talking about briefly in his CTS200 session. There's apparently a related
project Boa (another serpent name along the family line of Viper that was the
original codename for MTS), including the business markup language BML (pronounced
"Bimmel") that he's involved in.”
Seems very much like these few things:
Nagel: “SOA support is dependent on Indigo; Proceess support needs the
BizTalk Orchestration Engine. The "business logic" portion will not be shipped with
Whidbey because this would cement parts of MBF into a "non-Longhorn" model.”
Weyer: “Don mentions
over there in the Indigo
newsgroup that the next version of BizTalk Server (I mean the one *after* Jupiter)
will be built on Indigo: The version of BTS after Jupiter will use Indigo directly.
This brings Indigo's security, RM, and TX stack to BTS.”
Hello the the microsoft watch readers, to the register readers, and to all the
others :) Remember to subscribe to this fantastic blog, and to send the link around
to try and kill my server. Slashdot soon to follow i guess, which will kill
my server. :)
this shows is that there's a bit too much appetite for the next big thing while we're
all still working on making the current big thing happen"
Box: "I guess that "Project BOA" talk at Applied
XML DevCon V isn't going to get accepted now…"
put it down as part of Microsoft's new strategy of LOA -- Laughing Over Acronyms."
on guys, the cat's out of the bag - it's time to own up to the fact that you've just
been stringing us along all these years - clearly nobody could possibly have any requirement
for any kind of markup for capturing business processes."
And of course the Microsoft
watch article and the
