One of the most underutilized capabilities of BAM is to capture data from Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). Your first BAM project, in this chapter, will focus on using BAM and WCF. In this chapter, you will also learn about the four roles in a BAM project: business analyst, developer, system administrator, and data consumer.
The chapter starts by describing the responsibilities of these roles, and then walks through a simple BAM project step by step. This sequence of exercises, which captures data from a simple WCF service, shows how BAM provides value even if your organization doesn’t use BizTalk Messaging or BizTalk Orchestration.
