Microsoft just made the results of the BizTalk Server contest  public.  I immediately started googling but it appears that Paul Somer’s entry is not downloadable yet… (Please drop me a line if I’m wrong.)  Neverthless, a few cool cool toys appeared on gotdotnet in the mean time.  My selection of these:

  • BizTalk Server 2004 “deploy with Nant” template
    Integrating BizTalk Server with Nant
  • BizTalk Server 2004 Pipeline Component Wizard 
    VS.NET addin for quickly building pipeline components
  • BizTalk AutoDeploy Utility
    VS.NET addin for quickly (re)deploying BizTalk Server solutions.  No need for Ant
  • BizTalk Server 2004 Performance Tool
    Tool that allows for BizTalk Server tuning.
  • BizTalk Server 2004 Transactional .NET Adapter
    My own adapter that allows for transactional message transmission to any .NET component.
  • BizTalk Server 2004 Tracking Playground
    My own little tracking demo application showing how to make use of the tracking db views and WMI.
  • BizTalk Server 2004 Management Tool
    I’m very curious about this one!  There’s a GotDotNet workspace but it’s empty as for now…
  • BizTalk Explorer
    Doing what VS.NET allows you to do, without VS.NET 🙂
  • BizTalk Server Service Windows
    Allows for more flexible service windows.
  • BizTalk Server POP3 Adapter
    Inbound email messages in BizTalk Server
  • BizTalk Server TIBCO Adapter
    Rudimentary sample
  • BizTalk Server SQL BLOB Adapter
    Reading and writing message to binary SQL columns.

Please note: I haven’t tested nor downloaded all of these.  I do not make any judgement on the quality nor availability of the entries above.  My only intention here is to give a short overview of what’s currently available.

Have fun!
