Web Services and Biztalk

Extreme technical crap follows, if the title didn't make sense don't even try to read. Day 1: Publish Schemas as a Web Service Suppose you want create a web service with Biztalk all you need to do is define your Request and Response in a XML schema file and use the Web Services Publishing Wizard to create the web service. Not a single line of coding. Pretty cool huh, wait until you try it.


I don't know yet. But I got to, it seems doing this will add more value to your web services as Biztalk can do some enterprisey stuff. Will update this once I know better.


Do these in the exact order http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa559328.aspx http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa577935.aspx http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa578158.aspx Once your done with all that you will most likely come across one of these issues. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa995583.aspx Fix them. All done good. You are not done yet. Now send a request to your web service and hope that it doesn't time out and returns a response. As for me, I keep getting a timeout error. Yes, I did try setting a higher timeout (20 mins) yet didn't make any difference.
