BizTalk adapter for Oracle E-Business suite RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a requirement for developing  BTS adapters for Oracle E-Business suite. We currently have the below listed software

    versions in our production environment:

    Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004
    Oracle 10G

    My question is if we develop BizTalk adapters for Oracle E-Business suite using BizTalk adapter pack 2.0, then can our biztalk server would be able to consume these adapters (BizTalk server 2004 is what we have in use).

    Please let me know whether BTS 2004 is capable of consuming these new developed adapters, if not which version of BziTalk server would be required to consume the adapters developed for Oracle E-Business suite.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Siva,

    BizTalk Adapater Pack 2.0 is geared towards BizTalk Server 2006 R2 and 2009. The BizTalk Adapter Pack is based on the WCF LOB Adapter SDK (SP2). This SDK provides a simple programming model for developing adapters that are based on Windows Communication Foundation. This is a separate download available to everyone using the .NET Framework 3.0. Key here is WCF, which is not supported on BizTalk 2004. You are better off upgrading your BizTalk environment to 2006 R2, upgrade from 2004 to 2009 is not possible (see this thread). You can also read my article published in Hotrod 8 about working with BizTalk Adapter Pack 2.0.

    I have a small doubt, not sure whether it would make sense to one. Please advise me.

    My question is "Can BizTalk server 2004 consume adapters developed using BizTalk Adapater Pack 1.0 ".
