A service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a vendor, product, or technology independent pattern that enables application components in a network to obtain services from other components. You can take advantage of the Microsoft Integration Stack to implement your SOA strategy smoothly and cost effectively.

Starting with an introduction to BizTalk Server and WCF, you will learn about RESTful services, JSON, and Azure Service Bus, and how to apply SOA principles to creating BizTalk solutions. Moving on, you will learn how to implement versioning in endpoints, orchestrations, and schemas. Finally, you will discover the usage of the ESB Toolkit and extend the connectivity of BizTalk Server applications to Microsoft Azure.
