Creating an Application

Creating an Application

There are four ways to create a BizTalk application. There are also several options for naming, referencing, and deploying artifacts to applications.

The four ways are as follows:

To deploy an application using an .msi file, the destination application does not need to exist, but will be automatically created. However, to import bindings from one application to another, the destination application must already exist. If not, you need to create it by performing one of the procedures listed above.

For more information about the specific steps required to create an application, see How to Create an Application ( in BizTalk Server 2009 Help.

Before creating a new application, you should do the following:

  • Determine a name that is unique within the BizTalk group for the application.

  • Add a reference from the new application to any application containing artifacts that you want to reuse in the new application. For more information about dependencies between applications, see Dependencies and Application Deployment ( in BizTalk Server 2009 Help.

  • Determine whether you want to deploy some artifacts into separate applications, for example, shared artifacts that should be deployed into their own separate application.
