Biztalk 2006 Beta 2 Released

BizTalk 2006 2.0 Beta Officially Launched!

BizTalk Server 2006 has now been officially launched! It is avalaible at Microsoft’s Website to download.

So, what does this mean?

It means a new build is available. It is the Community Technical Preview (CTP) build. I have downloaded it today and I am going to install it. It seems to be terrific.

I was using Biztalk 2006 CTP release 1.0. Now, I have to chanfge it to the new version. In CTP 1, except some installation problems, it was good. Now, I hope those problems will be solved in CTP 2 release.

The best part of the CTP build is it includes four new BizTalk 2006 Adapters (Oracle DB, Oracle Apps, PeopleSoft, and Siebel). It comes with the biztalk licence.

I have read the white papers on Microsoft website about Biztalk 2006 Runtime changes and Installation procedure. It looks cool. Everything you need to start with Biztalk is there,
