Technical Reference Guides for Designing
Mission-Critical Middleware Solutions

The guides in the series, Technical Reference Guides for Designing Middleware Solutions, assist with the planning and design of middleware applications. These guides reflect the knowledge gained by Microsoft while working with customers on mission-critical deployments. Each guide provides not only the key technical concepts and information helpful for design, but also “lessons learned,” best practices, and references to customer case studies.

Use these technical reference guides after you have made the conceptual architectural decisions to address specific business needs and are ready to work through the technical design alternatives to choose a solution.

To access these guides, you may use the visual hierachy (i.e., image map) that provides a visual representation of the relationship between the guides or through a bulleted hierarchical list.
