Modifying the Design-Time Configuration of the Sample File Adapter
The Microsoft® BizTalk® Server 2004 Software Development Kit (SDK) includes a sample file adapter that you can use as a template on which to can create and customize your own adapter solutions. This section explains how to modify the sample file adapter provided in the SDK to create your own custom adapter.
This section provides two sets of instructions. The first set walks you through the changes you will have to make to create a custom static design-time adapter. A custom static design-time adapter uses a fixed set of interfaces to gather data. The next set of instructions walks you through the changes you will have to make to create a custom dynamic design-time adapter. A dynamic design-time adapter uses a dynamic or variable set of schemas to retrieve data. Dynamic adapters are commonly application specific, and are designed to gather SAP or SQL schemas dynamically based on the subsystem.
A prerequisite to creating a custom adapter by using the steps in this section is to install, build, and run the sample file adapter provided in the SDK. For instructions on installing, building, and running the sample file adapter, see File Adapter (BizTalk Server Sample).
