The latest adapter pack that Microsoft includes with BizTalk contains WCF-based adapters (i.e. bindings) for Line-Of-Business systems (SAP, Siebel, Oracle eBusiness Suite), SQL and Oracle databases.

These adapters can be used within the BizTalk Runtime, separately in .NET projects, Windows Azure and with the latest additions of the Service Bus (Windows Azure Service Bus EDI/EAI CTP). In this talk, the different aspects of using this adapter pack will be discussed combined with samples to demonstrate its versatile integration capabilities.
