Microsoft Advances SOA Plan With .NET Framework

Microsoft recently announced the new server technology, Dublin to the .Net Framework that will give new exposure to the Service Oriented architecture for the web Developers. The software will be available initially as an add-on that can be downloaded. Later, it can be integrated with the Operating System.

“Developers are continuing to embrace the notion of composite applications and components, some of which they write, some of which they get from other services,” said Steven Martin, Microsoft’s connected systems division’s senior director of marketing. “The distinction between web server capabilities and application server capabilities are increasingly getting fuzzier and fuzzier.”

The new server technology, code-named “Dublin,” is an “environment for deploying, managing, and monitoring a componentized application,” Martin said. It will be a distributed application server that will allow applications to use some of the features of Microsoft Technology like Microsoft’s Web server technology, Internet Information Services. The new technology is going to reduce the coding part of the developer significantly.

Microsoft’s Dynamics CRM and ERP are the first group of software that will take the advantage of the new Server, “Dublin”. Microsoft also will make improvements to Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Workflow in the next version of the .Net Framework. .Net 4.0. Windows Communication Foundation will use the  REST-based architecture in future and support Atom and POX.  Microsoft will make it available on its Codeplex open source forge.
