How to Update an Assembly

This topic describes how to update the version of an assembly and the application that an assembly is deployed to using Visual Studio 2008.

If you are updating an assembly with a new version, you do not need to restart the application.

To perform the procedures in this topic, you must be logged on with an account that is a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group.

  1. In Solution Explorer, right-click the BizTalk project, and then click Properties.

  2. In the Project Designer, click the Application tab.

  3. In the right pane, click Assembly Information.

  4. In the Assembly Information dialog box, specify values for the Assembly Version field to increase the assembly version number. You should increase only the major or minor version number. The major version number is the first digit in the sequence (n.0.0.0); the minor version number is the second digit in the sequence (0.n.0.0). BizTalk Server will not recognize a version number change that is later in the sequence, such as 0.0.n.0 or 0.0.0.n.

  5. Click OK to close the Assembly Information dialog box.

  6. Save the project.

    Use the Pipeline Designer and BizTalk Explorer Object Model to avoid schema collisions when incrementing assembly versions.

  1. In Solution Explorer, right-click the BizTalk project, and then click Properties.

  2. In the Project Designer, click the Deployment tab.

  3. In the right pane, specify the application name in the Application Name field.

  4. Ensure that the Install to Global Assembly Cache property is set to True.

    When you deploy the solution, the assemblies will be deployed into the new application and installed in the GAC.
