What is BTSG NoS Addin purpose?

The purpose of BTSG NoS Addin is to help all BizTalk Developer, why not, all BizTalk Administrator too in a lot of different situations, by improving the developer experience and why not reduce the development time in new or existent BizTalk projects.

It will provide several functionalities like quick search inside artifact, fast register/unregister in GAC, find critical, internal or external dependencies… and many more functionalities like JackHammering, which will compare your VS artifact with the artifact deployed in BizTalk environment, you can also extract the artifact (Orchestration, map, schema and so on) from BizTalk environment and put it in the VS solution or even test your pipeline in VS simply… several features that are usefully in our day by day work and a time saver in a lot of situations.

    5 Stars, keep the good work.

  • Thanks for sharing

  • Is it available for VS 2008 as we are using BTS 2009 ?

    • Hi Akshay,
      Some of the features of the addin may work in VS2008 but most of them will not work. So the addin for now is only supported for VS2010 and 2012.
