Exporting bindings

As there have been numerous requests by e-mail for this, I'll explain the ways of exporting binding information from the BizTalk Management database.

Binding files define the connection between components within the BizTalk environment, they define send/receive ports, groups, orchestrations properties, etc.

To export binding information, you have some options:

  1. Use the BizTalk Deployment Wizard from the Microsoft Biztalk Server 2004 start menu and follow the steps (choose "Export BizTalk assembly binding file, choose the server, choose the appropriate assembly, the location of the exported binding and press Finish)

  2. Utilize the command-line application "btsdeploy", located within the BizTalk Server 2004 installation folder, e.g.:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004>btsdeploy export name="UnzipSampleProject" version="" culture="neutral" publickeytoken="8321b1fe6c55c81a" binding="unzipsampleproject.xml"

  3. Use BizTalk Explorer (my version), found here. Right-click the assembly you'd like bindings to be exported for, choose a folder to export to. The binding files will be named after the assembly and postfixed with "_export" and ".log".
