I am delighted to announce “BizTalk Mapper Extensions UtilityPack”. This is my first contribution in CodePlex with a BizTalk Open Source project.

Project Description

These libraries were made for BizTalk Server 2006/2006 R2 but it should work in BizTalk Server 2009 and 2010.

“In the future, I will optimize this project to BizTalk Server 2010/Visual Studio 2010.”
