Deploying Biztalk WCF service to higher environments. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have published BizTalk schema as WCF service in my local.  I need to move this to higher environments.What is that I have to do when I am moving to another server with just 1 BizTalk environment.
    What do I need to do when this needs to be deployed in higher environment having 2 BizTalk servers (clustered).
    This is the wcf service that got created on my local : 
    When I move to UAT how should the wcf services should be named ? Is the below naming convention correct  
    What things I need to consider when we use BTDF in deploying this on DEV and UAT env
    Note : Dev is 1 BizTalk server, UAT is 2 BizTalk servers

  • What deployment method are you using?   Are you exporting a MSI from the BizTalk Admin console or are you using something like the BizTalk Deployment Framework (BTDF)?

  • These are web-directories on IIS, which BTDF supports, see:

    But generally, exporting a MSI from BizTalk will give you the option to export IIS virtual directories natively.  You'll note that your receive location only uses the path and not the full URL, e.g. /BTSWCFService/Method.svc.  This means the details of the local BizTalk application host are largely irrelevant.

    You may wish to implement a form of load-balancing in-front of your IIS daemons to handle distribution of connections.
