The BizTalk Adapter Pack Migration Tool  is a utility that helps developers migrate BizTalk projects using the  BizTalk 2006 SQL or the BizTalk Adapter v2.0 for mySAP Business Suite to their corresponding WCF-based versions from BizTalk Adapter Pack v2!

 

With the help of this utility you will be able to compile and deploy your application within minutes. Some of the highlights for the Migration Tool are:

  • Works on the source project files
  •   Generates equivalent schema definitions for the operations used in the existing project
  •   Generates new maps to convert messages from older formats to the new format
  •   Modifies any existing maps to work with the new schemas
  •   A new project is created upon completion, which uses the SQL and/or SAP adapters from the BizTalk Adapter Pack v2

 

The tool works for most common scenarios of maps and orchestrations, however it is only meant to be a starting step towards migration to BAP and we are open to receiving feedback to add scenarios,.
