  • I don't know of anything built into BizTalk 2010 that will do it, but you could build a custom adatper with the WCF LOB adapter framework that would.

    Do you have .net code that already does the screen scraping?

    Also, what application on the main frame?  I have done heaps of screen scraping in the past mostly in C++, but it can be very slow, BizTalk 2010 does come with Host Integration Services which gives you the ability to talk to CICS via Transaction Integrator.

    Hope this helps.

  • I dont know if this will fit into your scenario but CCA (http://crmcca.codeplex.com/) is a very powerful accelerator that can fetch/post/trigger controls on any application. It has integration with Visual Studio and is very fun in learning and to work with.

  • Host Integration Server 2010, which is included with a license to BizTalk Server has a feature called Session Integrator that provides screen scraping fnctionality. As a starting point, you can take a look at the following online documentation:

    The HIS 2010 SDK inclides a couple of samples as well:
