Several other Biztalk Developers and I were talking about this topic at Tech Ed and at the BPI Conference. I looked at Richard's Blog and he posted an excellent post on the exact same topic! At first glance, it looks like the BRE changes an immutable message or does it? The long and short of it is: No : the BRE does not change an immutable message Yes : the Call Rules...

    The Biztalk Subscription viewer is an essential tool for analyzing and correcting subscription errors in Biztalk. In Biztalk 2004, the subscription viewer was provided in the SDK.
