SOAP & SQL Adapter in BTS 2010 beta (Base pack) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have installed BTS 2010 beta (Base pack) in Windows Server 2008 R2 box.

    I found the SOAP and SQL Adapter in the 'Adapters' under Platfrom Settings in BTS Administration Console. But what I found in MS documentation that The SOAP adapter is deprecated and removed and SQL Adapter is removed inBTS 2010.

    Refrence link

    Please any one shed light on this.

  • Hi,

    It has to been seen if the SOAP and SQL adapters will be removed in the final version of BizTalk. Remember that this is all still beta documenation and that it might be different in the final version. They might be removed, or might be still there but keep deprecated.

    If you start developing a new application in BizTalk I would advise to use the WCF adapters and SQL WCF adapter. They have a couple of advantages over the "
    old" adapters in terms of performance and flexibility. Also they will be included (SQL Adapter will be in the adapter pack) in the final release.

  • I have heard that some of the functionality of the ESB Toolkit relies on the SQL adapter and that this functionality will remain in BizTalk 2010 final. So I think that either the SQL adapter will be sticking around or it may be redistributed with the ESB Toolkit.

  • I have raised the bug against  that MS BizTalk Server team responded that SQL adapter was there for internal usage. They'll remove it completely in the next release that.

  • Interesting! I think the "internal usage" probably means the ESB Toolkit usage.
