May 29, 2008


One of our BizTalk developers had a requirement to collect related messages and send a single email summary with details about those messages. I built the example below to help her out. In this scenario, a series of independent, but related, messages are sent to BizTalk. Each of these messages will have a “batch ID” […]

May 19, 2008


I’m currently architecting a project where one of the requirements is to limit the number of concurrent calls to a web service. I’d covered a similar topic in a previous post, and outlined two ways one could try and configure this behavior. First, you could limit the number of simultaneous connections for the SOAP adapter […]

Flowing Transactions To Oracle Using Adapter Pack

May 16, 2008

Article Series on BizTalk and WCF: Part VIII, BizTalk Adapter Pack Service Model Patterns

May 5, 2008


UPDATE: I have since moved these articles to my own blog and they can be found here. So how would you use the BizTalk Adapter Pack to build a RESTful HTTP URI on top of an Oracle database table?  What about calling Oracle stored procedures that made use of either strong or weak ref cursors?  […]
