  • Hi,

    As you are new to wcf, then if you want to manually create wcf and do not use the wizard.

    First you should  know how to create wcf first without using biztalk.

    Here are some good articles which may help you to get start:

    #WCF Step by Step Tutorial: .

    #Create wcf services: .

    Then for cover wcf in biztalk, using the wcf-wizard will be a good choice for us.

    If we want to integrate wcf with biztalk, then we should do the following:

    a.    Consuming a WCF  Services from BizTalk

    b.    Use the WCF Adapter.  Currently in CTP, it will be released with BizTalk 2006 R2.

    c.    WCF service exposed  over basicHttpBinding and  consumed from orchestration.

    d    WCF service exposed on wsHttpBinding endpoint. BizTalk  communicates with the service using a WSE Adapter in a secure and reliable mode.

    e.    WCF Service endpoint  on msmqIntegrationBinding. BizTalk consumes the  service using an MSMQ Adapter.

    f.    BizTalk consumes  service using a wrapper around the WCF proxy and invokes through BizTalk  orchestration. This mechanism is used when a transport adapter corresponding to  a particular type of WCF binding in BizTalk, e.g. netTCPBinding, is not available in BizTalk.
