Exposing Orchestrations as Web Services Update! 

I received a comment from Scott Colestock (thanks Scott!) on the blog entry to do with multiple schemas with the same root name and namespace, and then BizTalk failing at runtime because 2 schemas exist.

Basically, another workaround to the problem is to ensure that you use a custom pipeline that uses the XML Disassembler or Assembler (depending on which way you're going!) that specifies exactly what schema to use to resolve the message name.

Scott's article which covers this in detail can be found here.

Thanks again Scott :-)

About the Author

You may be wondering who I am (or may not!), but I've been in the industry 16+ years working on a variety of systems from IBM mainframes as a CICS systems programmer, to developing on Unix and Windows based systems. At the moment, I'm currently working for a Microsoft Gold Partner in the UK called Solidsoft who specialise in systems integration using BizTalk Server. My position is generally dictated by what I'm doing, but normally as a solutions architect/consultant helping clients with their integration projects involving, yes you guessed it: BizTalk Server.
