Migrating BizTalk Projects Created Using the BizTalk ODBC Adapter for Oracle Database

The BizTalk ODBC Adapter for Oracle Database that is shipped with Microsoft BizTalk Server differs from Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for Oracle Database that is shipped with BizTalk Adapter Pack in many aspects, including:

  • The design-time experience of creating a BizTalk project.

  • The metadata retrieval experience.

  • Schemas.

  • Data type mappings.

  • The operations that can be performed using the adapter.

  • Physical port configuration in the BizTalk Server Administration console.

This section discusses the differences between these two adapters.

noteNote
The Oracle Database adapter that is shipped with BizTalk Adapter Pack is a WCF-based adapter and can be used with BizTalk Server, the WCF service model, or the WCF channel model. The BizTalk ODBC Adapter for Oracle Database that is shipped with Microsoft BizTalk Server, however, can be used only with BizTalk Server.

Therefore, this section talks about version differences in terms of using the adapter with BizTalk Server 2013 R2. For information about how to use the adapter with the WCF service model or WCF channel model, see Overview of BizTalk Adapter for Oracle Database.
