One of the features we’ve enabled in the CTP3 of the BizTalk Adapter Pack V2 (which requires CTP3 of the WCF LOB Adapter SDK SP2), is the ability to expose the Adapters (which are in reality, WCF Bindings) as native BizTalk Adapters. Prior to this, if you wanted to use the Bindings from BizTalk, you had to use the WCF-Custom Adapter in BizTalk, then select the WCF Binding, and follow that route.
With CTP3, there is now an additional way you can use the adapters.
In CTP3, the above is available only for the SQL and SAP adapters. For the next CTP, we plan to do this for the OracleDB and the OracleEBS adapters also. Question – do you want this for the Siebel adapter too? If so, leave a comment here.
Also, in CTP3, this is being done only for BizTalk 2006 R2. For the next CTP, we plan to have this for BizTalk 2006 R3 also.
