Install Microsoft AppFabric Connect

BizTalk Server 2010 introduces a new feature “AppFabric Connect”, which combines rich proven features of BizTalk Server with the flexible development experience of .NET to allow users to easily develop simple integration applications. This enables users to:

  • Develop custom .NET applications that require connectivity to backend Line of Business (LOB) systems like SAP, Oracle database, Oracle E-Business Suite, Seibel, and SQL Server without writing custom code for LOB connectivity
  • Utilize the XML-based data transformation capabilities of the easy to use and rich interface of the BizTalk Server Mapper directly from within a .NET project.


The installation process is similar to the previous point.

Verify BizTalk Configuration

You can check if the configuration went well by having a look at the Windows Event Log, there should be a lot of Information entries and no errors or warning related to BizTalk.

You should also start the BizTalk Server administration console and verify the BizTalk Server host instance is started (found under BizTalk Group\Platform Settings\ Host Instances). Try stopping and starting the host instance.
