Effective Writing for Adapters

Many people, both within Microsoft and in third-party companies, have written successful adapters for Microsoft® BizTalk® Server. This task can be difficult, and this paper is intended to present some of the "tricks of the trade" that these developers have learned, in the hope that these will help others avoid common problems.

This document is structured as a set of issues that programmers face when writing adapters, and provides guidelines for resolving these issues. These guidelines can be read in any order, although you may find that reading the whole document first will make the individual guidelines easier to understand.
