Create Rich Messaging Endpoints on Azure
Updated: November 27, 2015
The topic Add Source, Destination, and Bridge Messaging Endpoints discusses how such endpoints provide the ability to connect to disparate LOB applications and the ability to validate, transform, and extract properties from a message. The topic Tools for Creating Message Schemas provides information on the BizTalk Service project design surface that can be used to configure such endpoints.
An end-to-end message processing entity may contain a message source (for receiving the message), message processing unit (such as a bridge), and finally a message destination (where the message is routed). So, configuring a rich messaging endpoint might include configuring all three components. This section provides the procedural information on how to configure all these components using the BizTalk Service project.
Even though Transforms are a part of rich messaging endpoints, they can either be configured as part of the BizTalk Service project or created separately before they are added to the message flow.
