The BizTalk ESB Toolkit provides architectural guidance, patterns, and a collection of BizTalk Server and .NET Framework components to simplify the development of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) on the Microsoft platform and to
allow Microsoft customers to extend their own messaging and integration solutions.
The Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1 uses BizTalk Server 2010 to support a loosely coupled messaging architecture. BizTalk Server includes a powerful publish/subscribe mechanism for messaging applications that works by creating and filling subscriptions,
which provides a highly efficient and scalable platform for service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications.
The Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.1 extends the functionality of BizTalk Server to provide a range of new capabilities focused on building robust, connected, service-oriented applications that incorporate itinerary-based service
invocation for lightweight service composition, dynamic resolution of endpoints and maps, Web service and WS-* integration, fault management and reporting, and integration with third-party SOA governance solutions.
In order to develop ESB Solutions , One should be familiar with following:
