Biztalk Server WSE/WCF Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Recently we had a problem with Biztalk Message acknowledgements not being returned to users.

    The Biztalk server has a connection to a WebLogic app server, we found that problem was caused by the weblogic httpkeepalive settings being to aggressive, and resulting in Disconnections. These were subsequently adjusted and the reliability greatly improved.

    The remote weblogic system is not within our control, and we have started to look at whether we can adjust the settings at the Biztalk server (WSE/WCF). Are then any recommended settings :-

    1. For the WCF adapter

    2. For the http settings to get the optimal performance/reliability from connections to non-biztalk systems such as weblogic

    Thanks in advance

  • When you say "BizTalk message acknowledgements," do you mean like ACK/NACKs or perhaps a service response that is not coming back?

    I assume you are using the WCF adapter - perhaps the basicHttp adapter or WCF-Custom using the basicHttp binding to connect to a WebLogic service. BasicHttp is recommended for interoperability with non Windows systems.

    You can set HTTP headers on the WCF request using a custom service behavior: http://blogs.msdn.com/skaufman/archive/2009/05/29/exposing-custom-wcf-headers-through-wcf-behaviors.aspx. This is for when you use the WCF publishing wizard. A message contract also works.

    Thanks,
