    Consuming a BizTalk hosted WCF Service with InfoPath 2007

    I recently built a POC that wrapped an SAP RFC call in a WCF Service exposed by BizTalk. I exposed schemas as WCF services instead of opting for exposing the Orchestration as a WCF Service. The purpose of the Service was to validate a utility meter’s status inside of SAP.  Some of the statuses may include active/inactive/meter not found.  The RFC that I used is called RFC_Read_Table.  This is a pretty generic, out of box,  RFC that allows you to query SAP tables.  The RFC...

    BizTalk 2009: BizTalk Mapper - get value from last node

    I ran into a situation where I needed to get the last value from a re-occurring node that SAP was returning. In order to extract the last record, I utilized the Record Count functoid and fed that value into the Index functoid. The Index functoid is also fed with the value from the "WA" element that I am really interested in. The result is then passed to a String Concatenate functoid where the data is enriched before being assigned to the destination document.

    Using XSLT 1.0 to summarize a node-set with comma separated values

    Pure XSLT is very powerful but it definitely has its weaknesses (I’ve written about how to extend XSLT using mapping and BizTalk previously here) … One of those are handling numbers that uses a different decimal-separator than a point (“.”). Take for...

    WSDL import problem in BizTalk project

    When adding a Web reference to a BizTalk project, the following message appears: There is a problem with the WSDL but you don't get any extra information. The cause was this part in the WSDL: <port binding="tns:TestServicePortBinding" name="TestServicePort"> <soap:address location=" REPLACE_WITH_ACTUAL_URL "/> </port> Apparently a BizTalk project can't handle an invalid location (a Console project doesn't have any problem with this!).
