I have some questions about BizTalk 2006 for a research:
– Is BizTalk automatic setting up a LDAP registery?
– Does BizTalk has any capacity limits?
– Is there a maximum of processingload or transfercapacity?
– Does BizTalk supports XBRL?
– Is it possible to simulate the designed business processes?
– Is it possible to define business rules and monitor business processes against that business rules?
– In wich languages is BizTalk abailable?
– Is it easy to generate different reports or manual reports?
Thanx for the answers!

Some answers to your questions
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Is BizTalk automatic setting up a LDAP registery? [/i:2b9fdc3733]
No Biztalk does not have an LDAP registry. It maintains a number of databases, none of which are accessible via LDAP.
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Does BizTalk has any capacity limits?[/i:2b9fdc3733]
Yes. Biztalk is able to scale up significantly using multiple processing servers and multiple database servers. however there will be a point where it will reach capacity. Application design will have a big impact on the capacity limits.
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Is there a maximum of processingload or transfercapacity? [/i:2b9fdc3733]
Again Yes. There will be a point where Biztalk will reach a limit. This maximum load point will be application dependent.
check out the Biztalk Performance Blog @ [url]http://blogs.msdn.com/biztalkperformance/[/url]
And there are some whitepapers on performance and architecture
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Does BizTalk supports XBRL? [/i:2b9fdc3733]
Biztalk does not support any Xml \”language\”. It is able to process Xml messages and can provide Xml Schema validation of a document. This would not be sufficient for Full Conformance validation of XBRL. This functionality could be added by extending Biztalk, if Biztalk was creating or directly consuming XBRL. If Biztalk is just an intermediary between two XBRL processors then these endpoints should be responsible for conformance testing.
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Is it possible to simulate the designed business processes? [/i:2b9fdc3733]
Biztalk currently does not provide Business Process Modelling tools that are capable of process simulation. There are a number of third party tools available. Most of these tools now support BPEL and Biztalk is capable of importing BPEL specifications.
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Is it possible to define business rules and monitor business processes against that business rules? [/i:2b9fdc3733]
Yes. Biztalk includes a Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) module that provides reporting and alerting capabilities
[i:2b9fdc3733]- In which languages is BizTalk available? [/i:2b9fdc3733]
English, Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese
[i:2b9fdc3733]- Is it easy to generate different reports or manual reports?[/i:2b9fdc3733]
Probably depends on what you wish to report on. The BAM module is fairly straight forward, although you need to specify what activities and events are monitored. The Tracking database also provides comprehensive data on events and messages, although generating reports off the tracking database is probably not as easy.
