Microsoft Windows Server AppFabric Hits Beta 2

Windows Server AppFabric is a play by Microsoft to make it simpler for developers working with ASP.NET, Windows Communications Foundation and Windows Workflow Foundation, to create their apps with Visual Studio and .NET Framework.

The release hit beta 2 this week, giving developers and application managers a better look at what's ahead. CodeGuru has the story.


Microsoft said it has released Beta 2 of its Windows Server AppFabric, a set of services meant to simplify writing composite applications that take advantage of both local servers as well as services in the cloud.

"We're encouraging developers and IT professionals working with .NET 4 and Windows Server to download the Beta and provide feedback, as we prepare to release the final version of Windows Server AppFabric to be delivered by Q3 of 2010," said a post in Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows Server Division Weblog on Monday.

Microsoft rolled out the first beta of Windows Server AppFabric at the company's Professional Developers Conference (PDC) 2009 in Los Angeles in November.
