After migrating the BizTalk Pipeline Components Extensions Utility Pack, now is time to dedicate my time to another one: BizTalk Mapper Extensions UtilityPack. And to start I have chosen the Conversion Functoids.

Conversion Functoids

Or use to convert between one format of a specific type of data into another format of that type, for example converting DateTime (Short Time Pattern, Short Date Pattern, Full DateTime Pattern, Universal Sorta­ble DateTime Pat­tern, …) .
