Once in a while some of my students ask if they can reuse the components which they have built in the previous version of BizTalk Server. Unfortunately the answer is no; but there's some good news for them: the BizTalk Server Adapter Migration Toolkit (AMT) is released!
AMT is designed to simplify migration of BizTalk 2002 solutions to BizTalk 2004 by providing three key pieces:
The generation of wrappers for BizTalk 2002 Application Integration Components (AICs) so that they can be used as BizTalk 2004 adapters and pipeline components;
The wrapper for BizTalk 2002 custom preprocessors so that they can be used as BizTalk 2004 pipeline components; and
Implementation of BizTalk 2002 IInterchange to facilitate migration of BizTalk 2002 applications that submitted messages bypassing specific transports directly into BizTalk.
Please, read readme file for more details.
