Deployment framework for BizTalk -Tutorial


  • Hi All,

    I am currently trying to use "Deployment framework for BizTalk" (BTDF ) for creating deployment project for our BizTalk solution. Is there any documentation on this product for how to use to create a deployment project from basic to advanced level.

    The PDF file that comes as part of this product installation is certainly not a step-by-step tutorial reference.

  • Bali,

    The article you have referenced is not a step by step tutorial for creating either basic or advanced deployment project. It list down some of the basic components required.

  • That's one of the reasons I don't use the framework.  I just use BTSTask and DevEnv to do builds.  Does everything I need.

  • But I got to use it in our new project and I have seen many peple use it in their project.

    I have googled to find a good tutorial and I am sure I would have missed some good reference. I am just looking for that reference from somebody.

  • Hi,

    Deployment Framework lacks a good tutorial. It will be hard to find information on Deployment Framework other than blogs by its creators Scott Colestock and Thomas F.Abraham:

  • The Deployment Framework for BizTalk 5.0 is now available in final form, and has new, comprehensive documentation (more than 110 pages).  It also includes a walkthrough.  You can find the walkthrough online here, and download the release here.

  • Of course I can't beat the creator of this great framework, but I can add this nice basic tutorial by Randy Paulo.
