BizTalk Server 2006 Launch - Capgemini

At the world-wide launch yesterday the 7th of November I had a small role in the fact that the project I'm working on was presented.
Case studies are always nice to see that new technology is really being used out there.

See more details at:

See Capgemini's Global CTO, Andy Mulholland, and Luc Francois Salvador, CEO of Sogeti, speak about the power of Microsoft's new products and how they are enabling enterprise customers to get more for less!

See the Sidmar-Arcelor case study - Technology Service Firm Helps Steel Company Gain Reliable, Manageable Systems

Sometimes it can be simple

As you might know within expressions in the Orchestration Designer you've got the impression that you can do everything what you can do in C#, but in fact you are using XLang# with its restrictions (see more at http://geekswithblogs.net/cyoung/articles/3820.aspx).

One simple example is how to replace something within a string you receive, as explained in Charles Young article you need to use the stringbuilder class to reach this:

str = HRFile(FILE.ReceivedFileName);
myStringBuilder = new System.Text.StringBuilder(str);
readFile_requestInstance.Path = myStringBuilder.ToString();
