Failed to Serialize the Message Part
Recently I ran into an issue with the SOAP adapter giving me the error 'Failed to Serialize the Message Part 'Foo'' ever so often. If I sent 20k messages through I was maybe getting about 100 messages suspended for this error. Now I spend about an hour looking at the messages that failed and I realized the problem really had 'nothing' to do with BizTalk and it was a serialization issue. I basically took the messages that failed and attempted to de-serialize them using a utility in .NET which is what ......

Using SSO with the SAP adapter and in general
Here's my article on SSO. Now I have been a huge DotNetRocks fan forever. I love this show and their others (Mondays and Hanselminutes). I actually just created an application that crawls their sites for new torrents and downloads them. Might be posting that soon as I know a lot of developers that don't want to try to find all the old shows. Also if your a big torrent fan, like I am, get your hands on uTorrent, one of the first torrent clients built in C#. (gotta love it) -B ......

More BizTalk Samples, oh my...
Seems like they are making up for the fact that the samples for BizTalk 2004 weren't that great and some never worked at all without massive changes. Here are the new pile of great samples for BizTalk 2006. Thanks Luke. Happy downloading. Now I just need to find the time to look at these. Here's the full sample site from Microsoft. -B ......

How to configure IIS for a BizTalk 2006 HTTP Receive Location
First thing you need to do is to make sure that IIS's security is not going to be blocking your calls to the BTSHTTPReceive.dll. To do this goto your IIS manager and click on the Web Service Extension node and right click it and 'Add a new Web Service Extension'. Now browse to the location of BTSHTTPReceive.dll (by default installation its in <drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006\HttpReceive\ folder). Also remember to check the 'Set extension status to Allowed' checkbox. It is ......

BizTalk Strong Name Generator Add-in
I just installed and used this utility and I must say that I'm a HUGE fan of saving time (it is money!). Go here to download it. This add-in will add a menu item under your tools menu so once your BizTalk project is highlighted you can create an *.snk file. To install the add-in, just compile the add-in project and add the *.add-in file and assembly into your Addin folder (Ex. C:\Documents and Settings\\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Addins\ ) and open VS2005 and goto your Add-in Manager and add ......

New Blog from the BizTalk Product Team
Here's the new blog from the BizTalk Product Team. Seems that BizTalk 2006 RTM is right around the corner here. Cannot wait for that as I am in the middle of the design phase at a large client and we are designing around 2006 and I was getting nervous that come May (start of construction phase) it still wasn't released. But I can finally sleep at night. We are also looking at using SQL Server 2005 Service Broker with BizTalk 2006 to replace an older MSMQ solution between two systems, and I'll be ......

BizTalk 2006 Documentation
I thought this was a great idea to put the documentation into CHM format for easy accessiblility and navigation. This is still for the beta 2 that is currently out and is the last public beta before the RC is released. There are some topics that are still missing however its still a pretty good read, especially on a long flight. Here's it is. -B ......

BizTalk 2006 Interchange Processing (Recoverable that is...)
In testing out the new BizTalk 2006 feature of having Recoverable Interchange Processing I ran across settings in the pipeline component that also have to set up correctly in order for recoverable processing to work properly. You'll get a compilation error (Saying its unsupported) if you set Recoverable interchange processing to True and also have Validate document structure set to True. It seems that once recoverable interchange processing is turned on, the disassembler component splits up each ......

bye bye BizTalk, 2002 that is.
My BizTalk 2002 project is finally winding down and needless to stay I'm excited. It was a very successful project but at the same time it was very frustrating to be tied down to old technology. Our team spent weeks upon weeks developing solutions that newer versions of BTS already fixed out of the box, it was a good exercise in self control. Its a great time to get back into BizTalk 2004-06 and WF. I just saw that the WinFX January CTP was released. Get it here. There seems to be significant changes ......

BizTalk 2006 Beta 2 has been released
Its been out for a few days now (I know I'm behind the ball here) but I thought I'd be better late than never. Get the new beta here, I've been using it for the past week or so and I love it. I am particularly happy with the administration console (MMC) for the product, and also the BAM and BAS site improvements. Please check it out. Did I already say I can't wait for this thing to come out? -B ......

BizTalk 2006 CTP has arrived
Latest CTP for BizTalk 2006 can be found here. This version is the first to work with both RTMs (SQL2005 and VS2005) which I am very excited about. There are also ODBA (Orchestration Designer for Business Analysts) that has also been updated recently. To properly use the BAS features of this CTP you must install SP2 for Windows Sharepoint Services. There is also an updated MMC snap-in that needs to be installed as well. As we've seen in the past, BizTalk comes with a lot of installation baggage, ......

Create 'per-instance' pipeline configuration changes
Although I haven't completely messed around with this yet, I find it very useful for when you wish to have your pipelines be more flexible in allowing a 'per-instance' configuration that differs from the 'normal' configuration behavior. I think this can be very useful. Check it out. -B ......

WSS BizTalk 2006 Adapter
Here's a great comparison between the 2004 version of the WSS adapter (GOTDOTNET version) and the 2006 version, due to be out November 2005. I am so looking forward to working with 2006. I'm like a kid in a candy shop. I've been working with BizTalk since 2002 and stuck with it all these years and to see it evolve (got a tear in my eye) its so beautiful. Great work guys. -B ......
