Step 1 (For Azure): Create the EDI Project

 

In this section, Contoso creates an EDI project using the Microsoft Azure BizTalk Services April 2012 release. As part of the project, Contoso adds the following:

  • An internal sales order schema (ECommerceSalesOrder.xsd) to which the X12 840 EDI sales order schema will be transformed. Contoso uses the internal schema to process the message after it is received into BizTalk Server

  • A transform (EDI840TOSALESORDER.TRFM) to convert the X12 840 sales order schema to the ECommerceSalesOrder schema.

Contoso uses these artifacts while creating an agreement in the Azure BizTalk portal in Microsoft Azure BizTalk Services.

To create EDI project

  1. Open Visual Studio 2013, from the File menu point to New, and then click Project.

  2. In the New Project dialog box, from the Installed Templates, select Service Bus. Specify a project name and a location for the project, and then click OK.

  1. From the Solution Explorer, right-click the project name you just created, point to Add, and then click New Item.

  2. In the Add New Item dialog box, from the Installed Templates, select Schema, specify the name of the schema as ECommerceSalesOrder.xsd, and then click Add.

  3. Edit and build the schema to resemble the following:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>  
    <xs:schema xmlns="http://ECommerceSalesOrder.Inbound" xmlns:b="http://schemas.microsoft.com/BizTalk/2003" targetNamespace="http://ECommerceSalesOrder.Inbound" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">  
      <xs:element name="SalesOrder">  
        <xs:complexType>  
          <xs:sequence>  
            <xs:element name="CompanyCode" type="xs:string" />  
            <xs:element name="PartID" type="xs:int" />  
            <xs:element name="Quantity" type="xs:int" />  
            <xs:element name="AskPrice" type="xs:decimal" />  
            <xs:element name="RequestShipmentDate" type="xs:date" />  
            <xs:element name="Address">  
              <xs:complexType>  
                <xs:sequence>  
                  <xs:element name="Line1" type="xs:string" />  
                  <xs:element name="Line2" type="xs:string" />  
                  <xs:element name="City" type="xs:string" />  
                  <xs:element name="State" type="xs:string" />  
                  <xs:element name="Country" type="xs:string" />  
                  <xs:element name="Zipcode" type="xs:int" />  
                </xs:sequence>  
              </xs:complexType>  
            </xs:element>  
            <xs:element name="Contact">  
              <xs:complexType>  
                <xs:sequence>  
                  <xs:element name="Firstname" type="xs:string" />  
                  <xs:element name="Lastname" type="xs:string" />  
                </xs:sequence>  
              </xs:complexType>  
            </xs:element>  
            <xs:element name="Comments" type="xs:string" />  
            <xs:element name="DateNow" type="xs:date" />  
          </xs:sequence>  
        </xs:complexType>  
      </xs:element>  
    </xs:schema>  
    
    

    You can use the Schema Editor to build this schema. For more information, see Using BizTalk Editor.

  4. Save the schema.

  1. From the Solution Explorer, right-click the project name you just created, point to Add, and then click New Item.

  2. In the Add New Item dialog box, from the Installed Templates, select Map, specify the name of the schema as Edi840ToSalesOrder.trfm, and then click Add.

  3. In the map, for the source schema select X12_00401_840.xsd. This is the standard X12 schema for an EDI sales order. You must have already added this schema to the EDI project you created. You can download this, and other X12 schemas from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=235057. The X12 schemas are part of the MicrosoftEdiXSDTemplates.zip package available from the download location.

  4. For the destination schema, select ECommerceSalesOrder.xsd. You created this schema earlier in this topic.

  5. Create the map by connecting the relevant nodes in the source and target schemas.

  6. Save the map.
