Microsoft Rule Engine Survey

June 1, 2010

Are you interested in helping to shape Microsoft’s future rules products?

Microsoft is running a survey on rule engines in general, and its own rule products (WF Rules, MS BRE) in particular through the end of this week – June 4. (I would have blogged it yesterday, but was off due to holiday.)

The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete. If you have used the WF Rules product, you will get a few additional questions about your usage of the features. If you only use non-Microsoft rule engines, your participation is welcome as well.

Your input is appreciated.

Windows Defender Potential Interaction with BizTalk BRE

March 28, 2009

If you are running both BizTalk BRE and Windows Defender, you may want to note that the BizTalk 2006 R2 documentation at MSDN has been updated recently to take into account a recent interaction with Windows Defender. The issue with Windows Defender was corrected immediately, and the fix for affected machines is simply adding localhost back to the hosts file.

This is the 2006 R2 documentation, but I believe the issue could also affect 2004, 2006, and 2009 Beta.

Thanks to the BRE survey participants

December 6, 2008

Many thanks to those readers who participated in the Microsoft BizTalk BRE survey that Charles Young pointed to in his blog.

In the future, I will endeavor to link to such surveys from this blog as well.

Charles mentioned in his post that he would liked to have seen a more “forward looking” survey, but hasn’t (as yet) followed up with any clarifications.

If you missed the survey, or have comments regarding it – I would love to hear from you.
