We’re officially through day 2 of the SOA & Business Process Conference!  For me it was great to hear all the hallway conversations between attendees doing real-world SOA today, and sharing tips for success. In fact, Day 2 was all about the ecosystem, and we had some key announcements from partners including:

JNBridge: Announced their JMS Adapters for the .NET Framework and the JNBridge Adapter for BizTalk Server. The new adapters provide a streamlined and automated method to connect JMS (Java Messaging Service) capabilities to Microsoft .NET Framework applications and BizTalk Server.

IDS Scheer: Announced the 2008 availability of its integration of the ARIS Platform with Microsoft BizTalk Server.  As a preferred BPM modeling and monitoring partner for Microsoft’s Business Process Alliance, IDS Scheer is previewing the integration at the conference this week.

SOA Software: One of our key partners for SOA governance, did a session detailing the topic and helping customer use their .NET assets to deliver a first class governance experience.

We also talked about the availability of the Managed Services Engine, available today on CodePlex. Time to go Trick Or Treating! But first, and check out the Video recap of the conference today: http://channel9.msdn.com/Showpost.aspx?postid=352776
