  • Hi Ranganathan,

    Correlations are for the means of matching asynchronous message transfers. It is used to identify two pieces of information (or messages) that are related. You use correlations in orchestrations, see MSDN Using Correlations in Orchestrations. For an example you can look at this post message correlations in BizTalk 2006/2009.

  • Correlation in general as its name suggest is the process to correlate two things e.g. response with request, in asynchronous communication pattern. In case of BizTalk, an Orchestration can have more than one instance running simultaneously. As these instances perform the same action, the only difference is that these does it on different data contained within a message. Correlation is a process of associating an incoming message with the appropriate instance of an orchestration.
