    The Context Accessor functoid, part III

    Hi all I have had posts about the context accessor functoid here and here .

The other functoid will only work when called from a map in a receive port AND only if the pipeline component that ships with the functoid has been used in the receive pipeline. As you can see, creating a map...

    Promoting reoccurring elements – Part II

    Hi all I had a post about promoting reoccurring elements in BizTalk. As we all know, this isn’t possible…. BUT… actually… well… :-) Basically, you promote properties for three reasons: You need it to route based on the value You need it for correlation (which is basically just a specialization of routing) You need to either read or set the value inside an orchestration (Don’t do that! Use distinguished fields instead) So, dealing with number 1, routing, I started thinking back at BizTalk 2002, which...
