It gives me great pleasure to announce Version 1.0 of the BizTalk Message Archiving Pipeline Component and my new venture, Atomic-Scope.
The component allows you to archive Xml, flat-file, EDI and binary messages as they pass thru receive and send pipelines, without the need for complex ‘archiving’ Send Port configurations, additional load on the MessageBox database and requires zero developer time – just plug-in, configure and use! Archive filenames are created at runtime from Context-Properties written to the message by receive adapters, custom properties defined in your solution or with the standard Send Port ‘macros’. A free 14-day trial is available – download your copy now.
This new version of the component builds on the excellent feedback received following the launch of the original version on Codeplex and has spent many months in development – this release is a complete re-write and incorporates many of the community requested features, including:
- The ability to enable and disable the component at runtime;
- The promotion of the archive filename into the Message Context for use in orchestrations, Send Port filters etc.;
- Full streaming support, even for messages that fail when being processed by downstream components (such as flat-file or EDI messages);
- Support for a wide-range of adapter Context-Properties ‘out-of-the-box’ and custom, user-defined Context-Properties;
- Native 32- and 64-bit versions;
- Support for all versions of BizTalk Server 2006, BizTalk Server 2006 R2 & BizTalk Server 2009;
A short video if available which gives an overview of how the component works when archiving files in receive pipelines (opens in a new window):
I plan on posting more information about the Message Archiving Component over the coming weeks. In the meantime, why not download the component and try it out yourself?
