Kirk Evans talks with William Oellermann about the Managed Services Engine (MSE). MSE is a solution built by Microsoft's SOA Solutions Team that facilitates enterprise SOA through service virtualization. MSE provides the ability to support versioning, abstraction, management, routing, and runtime policy enforcement for services.
Everything you see in the video is available through the free CodePlex version, available at http://codeplex.com/servicesengine.
In this video, William demonstrates how to use MSE to create a new endpoint and WSDL without concern for the implementation behind it, how to quickly virtualize operations into that endpoint, change the message transport from SOAP to POX, and finally how to add behaviors for policy enforcement and management. He also demonstrates how to integrate services with BizTalk's Business Activity Monitoring, enabling mining and surfacing of data through SQL Server Reporting Services.
