Service Bus Connect is organized in two big modules:
As we can check some components are common in Developer SDK and Runtime&Tools, this is because in a normal business environment we assume that is going to exist a machine to develop the applications and another to have them running.
To create a new project you just need to:
The EAI environment to work on Visual Studio project is very similar to BizTalk 2010 however some functionalities wont be available in windows azure eai and edi labs, functionalities like generating a schema instance or validating a schema, so usefull in BizTalk to test our maps.
My suggestion is that if you have it, use BizTalk in paralell with your eai and edi project and with this have all functionalities by your side, this because testing bridges deployed in the azure cloud can be quite complicated because errors returned by the debug console are insuficient. To insure that errors are not in our chemas or maps we shoul use biztalk server.
This lack of funcionalities is because Azure EAI and EDI labs is still in a development stage, so i hope, this april version is must better than the first release so lets hope some other release brings us the full package.
