Here you can download the presentation (in spanish) of the talk “Introduction to application integration” (“Introducción a la integración de aplicaciones”) that I did in Microsoft Argentina HQ together with Diego Gonzalez, Rodolfo Reichard and Adrian Lopez.

Last week I was learned in deep the WCF channel architecture and how to development a custom transport channel. To put in practice these knowledge I had programmed a transport channel that works over POP3 and SMTP protocols.

This channel is based in the soap.smtp channel that Steve Maine write for WCF Beta 2, and is also based in the UDP transport channel that come in Windows SDK.

Here you can download the channel code and a complete sample of use.

The next Thursday I will be speaker (together with Diego Gonzalez, Rodolfo Reichart and Adrian Lopez) in a conference about application integration in several perspectives (data, process, middleware and front-end).

This is the link to register:

I will talk about application integration in the front-end, from the composition of UI to the integration of applications in zero-touch fashion.

I will also present a Windows Form Control in which I had worked for some time. This control (ExternalApplicationHostControl) allow to execute any Win32 application inside of a .NET Windows Form. Here a preview picture of ExternalApplicationControl running a Notepad an Calculator together inside of a .NET Windows Form:
