Updated: November 17, 2014
This topic provides you with instruction and pointers to set up your computer on which you will perform the steps to set up the hybrid integration scenario described in Tutorial: Using Azure BizTalk Services to Integrate with an On-Premises SAP Server. You must do the following to set up your computer:
Install Microsoft Azure BizTalk Services SDK at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=235057. You use this SDK to configure and deploy the XML One-Way Bridge that sits between the EDI agreement and the relay endpoint.
Install BizTalk Adapter Service. You use this to expose the Send operation on an IDOC as a relay endpoint on Service Bus.You can download the installer from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=235057. Refer to the BizTalk Services installation guide at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=237092 to install the software prerequisites for BizTalk Services SDK and BizTalk Adapter Service.
Install the WCF LOB Adapter SDK. This is required for installing the BizTalk Adapter Pack on the computer.
Install the BizTalk Adapter Pack. This contains the SAP adapter that is required to establish connectivity to an SAP Server and for exposing SAP artifacts as operations.
Install the SAP client libraries. The SAP adapter needs these libraries to connect to an SAP Server. For information on where to install the SAP client libraries from, refer to the Adapter Pack installation guide (BizTalkAdapterPack_InstallationGuide.htm) at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=240161.
Download and extract the EDI message schemas (MicrosoftEdiXSDTemplates.zip) available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=235057. This contains the X12 850 Purchase Order message schema that is required for the business scenario we use for this article.
After you have finished installing and downloading these components, you are ready to start setting up the business scenario.
