BRE PolicyExporter - v1.0 - export arbitrary policies with ease..., import without publish, etc.

Ever had a Policy which failed to load in the Business Rules Composer because some object didn't exist in the GAC anymore of it's interface was chanced? Ever wanted to just select a bunch of Policies to export or delete all at once? Irritated by the fact you cannot edit a policy within the version you imported it in?

Use PolicyExporter and be on your way. It's a simple utility which allows you to make an arbitrary selection of both Policies and Vocabularies in a RuleStore and export them to whereever. Download the sourcecode here.

It's compatible with both BizTalk Server 2004 and BizTalk Server 2006 beta 2 (convert the project to VS.NET 2005 to compile)
