Today I published one of my little projects on GitHub. It’s called BTFGui and in essence it is just a simple GUI around the BizTalkFactory Management Automation (SDK) to do some basic BizTalk Administration.

Currently it has the following features:

  • Stop/Restart HostInstances
  • Stop/Restart Applications
  • Remote Applications
  • Export Application Bindings
  • Terminate Suspended Instances

You can find It here on GitHub.

The main reason why I put this little thing together is simple: the BizTalk Administration Console can be very slow and time wasting if you just want to restart a hostinstance or export a binding. Therefore I created BTFGui and I can tell you that it saves me a lot of time when developing on my local BizTalk Server instance.
