BizTalk Explorer v1.26 - cool changes

Sorry, all I have time for these days seems to be BizTalk Explorer... If you have questions or comments regarding other BizTalk areas or would like me to spend some time explaining a given section of BizTalk Server 2004, please don't hesitate to ask...

So here's another update to the BizTalk Explorer tool. New in this release (it's undergone quite some rebuilding internally):

  • fixed bug with starting/stopping orchestrations (invalid parameter, no change)
  • multiple selection possibility for elements (deleting, starting, exporting, enlisting, killing, etc)
  • quick-edit feature for receive locations and sendports
I've uploaded all releases to GotDotNet as well, but you can download a copy of v1.26 here.

Enjoy! (Let me know what you think..)

  • Great app' Martijn. I posted a note about exporting bindings, but have just seen your earlier post on the same subject. However, I wanted to make a suggestion for fine-tuning of the binding-exports.

    Would it be possible to export receive port / location and send port bindings only (into a file, or even to the clipboard as nodes that can be combined into a custom binding file?)

    I often seem to work, esp. in development, with ports that are assembly-independent, so not covered by standard export functions.

    Just a thought ;-)

  • Excellent update thanks - BizTalk Explorer has become an invaluable tool.

    Couple of requests if you get time ;)

    - Would be nice if import binding could prefill with the BT database (i get no 'SQL servers found' message even thought the main display shows things fine).
    - Updeploy assembly has remove pipeline options etc. but these don't work if the orchestrations are enlisted. Only 1 more step to un-list first - but i'm lazy :)
    - Can ports etc. be listed by name order. We use projectname.action> as a naming convention so would make things a bit nicer.

    Other than that - keep up the good work..

  • Great feedback guys, thanks!

    1.27:

    The standard export (non-bound bindings) is already functional, under the "Assemblies" node contextmenu

    I've altered the "Select database" dialog to default to local BizTalk server configuration and added a button to override this manually and search for other BizTalk instances.

    Everything is now sorted alphabetically.

  • Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the Perfect World Gold, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I go to Buy Perfect World Gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to earn the Perfect World Silver to equip us to become strong. Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of Perfect World money for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience. I have a lot of cheap Perfect World Gold and I want to give her in the game, i can have a lot of pw gold if my skills of playing the game well.
