Install Service Bus Connect

Service Bus Connect is organized in two big modules:

  • Developer SDK
    • Azure Service Bus EAI and EDI Labs (EAI): Previously installed, which means that installing the Azure Service Bus EAI and EDI Labs we can install the whole bundle needed to start working.
    • Microsoft WCF LOB Adapter SDK 2010: Its a requirement to use the Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010.
    • Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010: Needed if our app will send messages to LOB on-premises systems like SAP, SQL Server, Oracle e Siebel.
  • Runtime & Tools
    • Azure Service Bus EAI and EDI Labs (EAI): Previously installed, which means that installing the Azure Service Bus EAI and EDI Labs we can install the whole bundle needed to start working.
    • Microsoft WCF LOB Adapter SDK 2010: Its a requirement to use the Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010.
    • Microsoft BizTalk Adapter Pack 2010: Needed if our app will send messages to LOB on-premises systems like SAP, SQL Server, Oracle e Siebel.
    • Runtime Service: Runs on-premise to manage all communications between local LOB systems and the EAI apps running in Service Bus.
    • PowerShell: Extensions to manage Service Bus Connect Runtime components.

As we can check some components are common in Developer SDK and Runtime&Tools, this is because in a normal business environment we assume that is going to exist a machine to develop the applications and another to have them running.

  • .NET Framework 4 or superior.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

    • Uninstall any previous appfabric version
    • IIS 7.0 or superior
      • After installing go to : “Turn windows features on or off” (use windows search text box to do it faster) and activate:
        • IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility
        • Windows Authentication
    • Insure the following:
      • We are local network administrators
