Interoperability and Integration using Web Services - An Industry Perspective - Level 200
July 12, 2004, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Pacific Time
Simon Guest, Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation

Are you writing applications using IBM WebSphere or BEA WebLogic? Are you wondering if and how you can interoperate with Microsoft® .NET using Web services? In this webcast, Simon Guest will summarize his previous webcast with an overview of some of the best practices, recommendations and strategies for achieving interoperability using Web Services. In addition, Simon will be joined by three industry architects - John Evdemon, Drew Gude and Mauro Regio - to discuss how Web services interoperability is becoming a reality in the public sector, manufacturing and healthcare verticals.   

Application Decomposition for SOA Based Systems - Level 300
July 13, 2004, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Pacific Time
Paddy Srinivasan, Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation

This webcast will deal with the concept of decomposing applications to enable architecting better service oriented applications. Integrating software applications is the new mantra of the Web services world but in order to achieve this, business services and boundaries should be clearly identified and broken down into autonomous entities. Decomposition of applications based on business logic is critical in maximizing the benefits of a service orientation. This webcast will use a supply chain system as the example for illustrating the concept. It will also look into some of the design patterns and Microsoft technologies that are applicable.   

patterns & practices Live: Test Driven Development - Level 200
July 15, 2004, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Pacific Time
Jim Newkirk, Development Lead, Microsoft Corporation

In Kent Beck's book titled Test-Driven Development, by Example he defines Test-Driven Development (TDD) as driving software development with automated tests. He goes further by stating that TDD is governed by two simple rules: write new code only if an automated test has failed and eliminate duplication. The implications of these two simple rules can be a profound change to the way that software is written. Most of the literature to date has bundled TDD along with Extreme Programming (XP). However, the benefits of using TDD are not limited to XP, and can be realized in any programming methodology. This webcast will provide an introduction into TDD, demonstrating how it works and what benefits it provides when used with Microsoft® .NET. The examples shown will use Visual C#® and NUnit.
