Initial Config Steps Upon Creating New BizTalk Projects
Just a reminder ... whenever you create a new BizTalk project, it's wise to immediately do the following things in the Project Properties window:
- Change the Deployment server to "." so that you aren't burying your machine name in the project properties for later pain.
- Set the Redeploy flag to "True" since I don't know if I've met a developer who has never redeployed over and over again.
- Set the strong name key.
Not doing all of these right away usually leads to one of a number of remarkably annoying deployment errors that inevitably cause a few minutes of digging around, and eventual self-abuse for forgetting something so silly.
