Introducing Azure Issue Tracker Sample Application

The Azure Services Evangelism team is pleased to announce the release of the Azure Issue Tracker sample application.

The Azure Issue Tracker demonstrates a real-world ISV scenario where you want to create and host a SaaS application for your consumers. This sample is being released in two versions: Standard and Enterprise. The Standard version allows ad-hoc users to use Windows LiveID federation with the .NET Access Control Service and authorize other Windows LiveID users. This allows small groups of users to quickly provision projects and issue tracking capabilities while using the rich claims-based authorization model and flexible entity storage.

The Cloud is the NEW SOA :)

.NET StockTrader Sample Application

An End-to-End Sample Application Illustrating Windows Communication Foundation and .NET Enterprise Technologies

This application is an end-to-end sample application for .NET Enterprise Application Server technologies. It is a service-oriented application based on Windows Communication Foundation (.NET 3.0) and ASP.NET, and illustrates many of the .NET enterprise development technologies for building highly scalable, rich “enterprise-connected” applications. It is designed as a benchmark kit to illustrate alternative technologies within .NET and their relative performance.

The application offers full interoperability with Java Enterprise, including IBM WebSphere’s Trade 6.1 sample application, and newly provided implementations on Oracle Application Server 10G (OC4J) and Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3 (Oracle implementations included with the download below). As such, the application offers an excellent opportunity for developers to learn about .NET and building interoperable, service-oriented applications.
