Insert and Get without Orchestration RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello All,

    I am working in project where having different screens in Dotnet.

    Every screen have Get and Insert operation in it.

    I want to develop this functionaly in Biztalk and mapping will be one to one.

    Can i do this without Orchestation ?

    Flow is as follows :

    Controler (DotNet) -> BizTalk -> DataAcess layer(Dotnet code).

    here DataAcess layer(Dotnet code) is service and biztalk will consume this service and will expose biztalk artifact as service too

    DotNet controler will consume Biztalk hosted service.



    Thanks and Regards, Nitin.

  • Hi Nitin,

    Definitely you can achieve this without orchestration, refer below mentioned articles they talk about calling webservices in messaging only scenario.

    You can also try using two way send port with WCF-BasicHTTP adapter.

    Let us know if you face any issue.

  • Indeed this is possible. 
    However, I won't use BizTalk just insert and retrieve data from SQL Server to .NET screens. Hope you are doing more than this.

  • Thanks Prashant...

    I want to implement it using REST Service (WCF-WebHTTP) protocall.

    Thanks and Regards, Nitin.

  • Mohan I know that we should not so only insert and retrieve using BizTalk, and I am implementing other features too.

    But there are few screens which are pretty simple and needs to do basic Insert and retrieve data on them.

    It would be great if you can suggest or point me to any articles apart from shared by Prashant

    Thanks and Regards, Nitin.

  • Hi Nitin,

    If you are using BizTalk 2013 or 2013 R2 calling REST web-service is extremely easy using WCF-WebHTTP Adapter.

    Please refer the below link.


    In case you are having older BizTalk version please refer below article and in this case you may have to use orchestration.

  • Can i ask you one question , why you want to do this if no business flow is required with the service.

    Biz talk add message persistance and add bit of extra time during your transaction so time taken will be like this.

    Total time=.DataAcess layer(Dotnet code) + BizTalk  +network 

    BizTalk is not meant to do only web service call ,it can easy been done with WCF rest wrapper .

  • I agree with guys on this question: Is there a clear reason to use BizTalk? What exactly wrong with existed solution?
