Todd Uhl BizTalk/WSE/Indigo
The new SharePoint Adapter is now included with the install of BizTalk. Typically, in a production environment, the SharePoint site you will be interfacing with is not the same as any of the BizTalk servers. When reading through the documentation, installing the adapter webservice on a remote machine is not very apparent. Easy enough, just run the BizTalk ......

When setting up WSS so you can do a full install of BizTalk, you may get an error similar to “System Error 1057 while trying to query service SPTimer”. For me, this occured while using the Configure Administrative Virtual Server section of Central Administration. I was using a local (non AD) service account that I had created. The problem ......

So, I figured it was finally time I broke down and started to really figure out what BAM was all about, partly inspired by Richard Seroter's posting on the subject (everyone should read his blog by the way.... fantastic stuff!!). So, I picked a sample project I've been playing around with for some other POC stuff, followed along with the handy little ......

In talking with others, it appears that the NAnt vs. MSI deployment camps are pretty much split down the middle. I tend to lean towards MSI deployments for several reasons. When dealing with MSI packages, it is often necessary to go beyond the somewhat basic BTSInstaller project that comes with BizTalk. I have posted before on custom actions to fill ......

Over the next few posts, I'm going to explore where, and how, WSE 2.0 fits in with BizTalk 2004. I know some of you are thinking, well, we have this wonderful WSE adapter that allows us to retreive SOAP messages and have all the (or at least some) of the benefits of WSE (WS-Addressing, WS-Policy, etc). That's true, we do... BUT, what happens if we want ......

Anyone who has done anything with BizTalk has run into the “could not find a matching subscription error” at one time or another. Keep in mind that under the covers, BizTalk operates under a Publish/Subscibe architecture. What this message is telling us is that nothing has subscribed to our message with it's current properties (namespace, ......

The chance that you receive this error for the same reason as I may be slim, but I thought I would offer up anyway. If you receive this error, and read the entire error message in the event viewer, it should give an indication of the cause. In my case, this was “no subscribers were found”. Of course I headed to our fried the Subscription ......

So, I'm looking at my blog today, and I see I haven't posted anything in 2 months and a day. Shameful!!! Anyway, I'm climbing back in the saddle. In what little free time I had before, I was working on a whitepaper for MSDN for the BizTalk Adapter for SQL Server. I'm glad to say the paper is complete, and should be on the MSDN site very shortly. I will ......

Ever get someones project out of source safe (or any other way), go to deploy it and get a 'SQL exception: SQL Server does not exist or access denied' error? Go to the project properties, configuration properties, deploy, and make sure it's pointing to your database (typically (local) ). Todd ......

Charles Young has a great post on transactions within orchestrations. In it he mentions the Batch property of the ATOMIC scope. I concur with him that the documentation on this is very light, as well as any information out in the communities. Doing a little testing on my current project with Stephen Thomas (be sure to check out his blog), it has become ......

Ok, sorry for the short hiatus….very busy times on my current project. Anyway, I previously mentioned some points around deployment. It turns out that using BTS Installer doesn’t work well when utilizing roles and parties. This doesn’t mean we have to scrap the BTSInstaller all together, we just have to do a little extra work in creating ......

After hours of fighting it, I have concluded that deploying a solution that utilizes Roles and Party's can't be installed using an MSI created with the BTSInstaller. You can use the same binding file and assemblies and use BTSDeploy and it all works fine. I plan on posting all my deployment scripts here in the next few days as the BTSInstaller gets ......

BizTalk server relies on a config file to store certain application information. This config file is located in \Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 and is named BTSNTSvc.Exe.Config. View your file here (DO NOT CHANGE THIS FILE WITHOUT BACKING UP!!!). Let's say that you have some .NET components that you want to consume from your BizTalk solution. ......

I applogize for being anything but prompt on this. The zip file can be found here. Steps for setting up Role Link Sample - 1. Create a receive port in BTS Explorer2. Create 2 send ports - RoleLinkTest_Approver1 and RoleLinkTest_Approver23. Set your transports, send or receive locations, etc for your ports4. Create a party called Approver1. Choose RoleLinkTest_Approver1 ......

Before I begin, I promise I am working on getting my role link example up here. There was some confusion with server space to upload the example to. Ok....I know when I first started with BTS'04, it was slightly confusing to me what the whole host/host instance thing was. A fairly new concept from the previous versions. But, once the concept sinks in ......
