BizTalk Server Resources on the TechNet Wiki.
I cannot think of anything tthat can be added. You have covered it all.
When do you find time to publish these posts?
I added a couple more i.e. SSO MMC Snap-In
A very useful article Steef Jan, thanks!
Another tool I like to use is the Orchestration Profiler. Although there is no release for 2010 yet a couple of configuration changes will get it working.
I would be very happy see what those changes are. For code coverage it would be nice to such tooling with BizTalk 2010.
I have documented the configuration changes on my blog
Here are two more tools:
BizTalk SSO Configuration Data Storage Tool
There on the list.
Thanks for this good post.
Can I suggest you two more tools ?
PowerShell Provider for BizTalk : http://psbiztalk.codeplex.com/, a great tool for IT to deploy and manage BizTalk through powershell.
And a tools like BizUnit :
WFTestDesign - wftestdesign.codeplex.com
This tools allow you to describe your test with the workflow foundation designer in Visual Studio. But for now, it's in beta and do less than BizUnit but give a User Interface to describe the test. I currently try to work again on this project to give it more functionnality.
If you want to add these tools on you list or just say what you're thinking about these tools.
And again, really great post!!
Hi Jérémie ,
I have included the PowerShell Provider for BizTalk under CodePlex projects topic. I have put your project there too.
The PowerShell Provider for BizTalk was already put under topic CodePlex projects where I included the WFTestDesign as well.
