Developer Tasks

Application developers and device-provider developers perform a series of tasks while they are developing, deploying, and administering RFID solutions in BizTalk RFID.

Application Developer Tasks

An application developer uses BizTalk RFID to build applications that handle RFID events and take appropriate actions when required. A developer who works on system integration uses BizTalk RFID to integrate various applications and devices to build custom solutions that meet specific business needs.

An application developer uses BizTalk RFID to do the following:

  • Interface with BizTalk RFID and devices through object models (OMs) and application programming interfaces (APIs).

  • Develop and integrate custom business applications that use RFID data.

  • Interact with a variety of devices from different hardware vendors.

  • Develop customized RFID processes.

  • Use the business scenarios, detailed technical descriptions, and sample code to quickly start development activities.

  • Deploy and host applications.
