BizTalk Server 2020 – 20 days, 20 posts – day 13. Once again, here is another pipeline component migrate to BizTalk Server 2020 that makes part of my BizTalk Pipeline Components Extensions UtilityPack project: XML Namespace Remover Pipeline Component. This component was initially developed by Johan Hedberg.
XML Namespace Remover Pipeline Component
The XML Namespace Remover Pipeline Component is a pipeline component for BizTalk Server which can be used in any stage of both receive and send pipelines to remove XML namespaces from XML documents.
This component has the availability to transform the root of the message from this:
If you have the option, you shouldn’t remove the namespace from the messages. However, we don’t leave in a perfect world and we need to deal with legacy systems and sometimes they required, for unknown reasons for me, that we deliver messages without namespace.
To use this pipeline component in your projects you just copy the RemoveXmlNamespace.PipelineComponents.dll file into the Pipeline Components folder that exists in the BizTalk Server installation directory:
- ..\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft BizTalk Server\Pipeline Components;
on every server.
You do not need to add this custom pipeline component to be used by the BizTalk Runtime to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).
What is BizTalk Pipeline Components Extensions Utility Pack?
BizTalk Pipeline Components Extensions Utility Pack is a set of custom pipeline components (libraries) with several custom pipeline components that can be used in received and sent pipelines, which will provide an extension of BizTalk out-of-the-box pipeline capabilities.
The project is available on the BizTalk Server Open Source Community repository on GitHub (https://github.com/BizTalkCommunity), and everyone can contribute with new pipeline components that can be extended or improve the existing BizTalk Server capabilities.
At the moment this project is available for:
- BizTalk Server 2020;
- BizTalk Server 2016;
- BizTalk Server 2010;
- BizTalk Server 2006-2009
