Visual Studio project design surface

Updated: October 1, 2014

The Bridge Configuration design surface is a visual designer that you can use to create an end-to-end message flow, originating from a message source, processed by a bridge, and then sent to a destination. It is a canvas that you can drag components onto from the Toolbox, and then use them to configure the flow.

When you install BizTalk Services, the installation process adds the BizTalk Services category under the Templates area in the Visual Studio New Project dialog box. The BizTalk Services category contains the following templates:

 

Project Template Description

BizTalk Service

Use this template to create a new BizTalk Service project for creating BizTalk Services applications comprising message sources, bridges, and message destinations. This project type can also be used to create artifacts like schemas and transforms that are in turn required by the BizTalk Services application.

BizTalk Service Artifacts

Use this template to create a project that contains only the artifacts, namely Transforms and Schemas. You can use this project to create a Transform or a schema that you want to upload to the BizTalk Services Portal for creating your agreements.

BizTalk Service project designer provides several components that you can place on the design surface as visual representations of the message sources, message processing bridges, or message destinations. These components can help you to efficiently design and implement a message flow. The following table lists the available components, along with a brief description of the function of each shape.
