April Triangle .Net User Group Meeting 4/14/2004
Preview of Indigo
Service oriented architectures are becoming the norm for enterprise systems in today's distributed world. The heart of SOA is messaging standards, and the defacto standard for messaging is web services. Web Services are quickly moving to the forefront of corporate information exchange, and XML is the most common messaging format to describe the data. Indigo is the codename for Microsoft’s new messaging framework. It provides rich support for SOA that is complementary to traditional object-oriented approaches. Indigo represents the best of .NET Remoting, ASP.NET, .NET Enterprise Services, and web service Extensions (WSE), rolling them into a unified programming and administrative model. Indigo supports standards such as HTTP, XML, and SOAP, and delivers a mechanism for secure, reliable, transacted messaging. Indigo will be included in the next version of Microsoft Windows, code-named “Longhorn”, although it should be available independently at some time before Longhorn ships.
This talk will provide an introduction and preview of Indigo. It will include both the mechanics of using Indigo, and sufficient background as to address why Indigo is so important. Come and learn how to take advantage of the coming standard for SOA on the Windows platform.
