Unicode Encoding Issue in Biztalk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Friends,

    I need help/guidance on encoding in Biztalk. I am trying to send Unicode Encoded Message to send port. I am successfully able to perform this using the below snippet in Execute method of custom pipeline:

    byte[] buffer = System.Text.UnicodeEncoding.Unicode.GetBytes(RegMsg);

    and  then writing the same to body part of outgoing message.

    But I do not want to maintain a custom pipeline only for doing this encoding and hence I tried setting the encoding params in Biztalk expression shape doing someting as:


    But NO luck.

    Can you please guide me with suggestion on anything I am missing.

  • What makes you think the data is not Unicode already?  In nearly all cases, it is by default.

    You have to really try to make it something like ASCII.

  • Hi Arindam,

    The custom adapter which I am using expect Unicode. The message is traversed without error when I use pipeline using byte[] buffer = System.Text.UnicodeEncoding.Unicode.GetBytes(RegMsg);.

    But fails when I try Msg_response(XMLNorm.TargetCharset)="unicode"; in orchestration.

    I am doing it correctly in orchestration for the functionality I used in pipeline?
