End-to-end Scenario – Receiving Messages Through The Http Adapter Installation Guide

The role of an adapter is to enable communications between BizTalk Server and external systems and trading partners. Users configure adapters by creating send ports and receive locations that define the properties for given instances of the adapter. Most adapters support both send and receive operations, whereas other adapters support communication in only one direction.

The HTTP Adapter is one of the adapters that support two-way communications, but unlike other adapters, this adapter has two characteristics that define it:

  • The HTTP “Receive” Adapter that is responsible for delivering messages to BizTalk is, in fact, a DLL that runs inside Internet Information Services (IIS)
  • And for that reason, it must be configured in IIS –it is not there out-of-the-box

What’s in store for you?

This whitepaper will give you a detailed understanding of the following:

  • Configure the HTTP Receive Adapter in IIS
  • Configure the HTTP Adapter Receive and Send Handlers
  • Receiving messages using the HTTP Adapter
  • And finally testing the solution
