BizTalk Server 2006 (12) Web Services

  • Using BizTalk Server 2006, you are able to publish an entire orchestration or a schema as a web service

In order to cosume a web service you need to:

  • Call a web service from an orchestration
  • Use the Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) to access service information
  • Specify if it will be a request-only (one-way) or a request-response (two-way) comsumption
  • Add a web reference
  • Create a web port
  • Create needed message variables
  • Construct a web message
  • Add send and receive shapes

Message Variables:

  • Used to store information sent and received by a web service
  • By using a web service, the orchestration never deals with the actual schema but rather message instances
  • Needed to construct a message whenever you introduce a message to the orchestration

Web message:

  • Can be either simple or complex .NET types

Send and Receive shapes:

  • Are used to send and receive requests to/from a web service
  • Are created using the Ochestration Designer
  • Are linked to a web port
