Microsoft Releases 'Indigo' Preview

One of the seemingly consistent efforts at Microsoft to proceed into SOA is the Indigo project.  The fact that it's making headway more rapidly than originally scheduled, and that it's possibly going to show up in the market early is definitely a "good thing" for the general adoption of Service Oriented approaches to application and infrastructure.

Microsoft officials said the Indigo infrastructure simplifies development through a service-oriented programming model where programs are composed using asynchronous message passing. To enable this programming model, Indigo provides a set of technologies for creating, processing and transmitting messages.

Indigo represents a unified programming model for building applications that support the broad array of Web services standards, which Microsoft refers to as the WS-* specifications. Indigo combines the features of ASP.Net Web Services, .Net Remoting, .Net Enterprise Services, WSE (Web Services Enhancements) and System.Messaging, the company said.
