Links from BizTalk Development Best Practices meeting
I’d like to thank everyone that attended tonight’s Connected Systems SIG meeting of the San Diego .NET User Group, focused on BizTalk development best practices.

San Diegan BizTalkers, read this.....
The San Diego .NET User Group Connected Systems SIG is doing what I think will be a pretty cool meeting next week. It's a SIG, so it will be casual, with Chris and I sharing tips and techniques we've learned in our travels, over time, and across multiple client sites and projects.

Creating an incrementing, persisted daily sequence number for a BizTalk Map
I ran into a slightly unusual requirement this week, and thought I’d do a post about it in case someone else needs this pattern. We needed to include, in a file that was being transmitted to a trading partner, a “file sequence number” that would be used for potential auditing/troubleshooting. This number (which is included inside the file itself) would start at “1”, and would increment every time we sent one of these files throughout the day. It would reset to “1” every day. So, constraints were: ......
