Paul's Petrov Whiteboard [BizTalk, Enterprise Application Integration, Business Process Automation, SOA, .NET]

I passed new Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) exam 70-235: Developing Business Process and Integration Solutions using Microsoft® BizTalk® Server 2006. Fresh experience with BizTalk 2006 helped a lot as well as reading documentation, blogs. Interestingly, this exam stands aside of new Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) path. It would make sense to include it as an elective option earning credit towards MCPD: Enterprise Application Developer. This exam with the combination of:

  • Exam 70–549: PRO: Designing and Developing Enterprise Applications by Using the Microsoft .NET Framework
  • Exam 70–536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Application Development Foundation
  • Exam 70–528: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Web-Based Client Development
  • Exam 70–529: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Distributed Application Development

would give well rounded Enterprise Application Developer skill set with emphasis on integration and business automation given that you've got to know all that stuff anyways to use BizTalk efficiently. I don't know what Microsoft planned this certification for but without skills listed above one can't develop a solid “Business Process and Integration Solutions”. So it does look like an orphan certification right now.

I'm planning to get the certification as well. Can you recommend any links or blogs to help me with it?

You can use BizTalk documentation which is good and go through provided samples in SDK. Also there's consolodated BizTalk Blogger's guide at Be sure to check out other bloggers I listed under the BizTalk category.

Good luck!
