Using Envelop Schema In BizTalk : Demo

What is Envelope Schema: It is a special type of schema which will allow you to carry multiple Payload messages wrapped in a single schema.

Where you Can Use it: Debatching, Aggregation.

The purpose of writing this post is to make us understand how it functions by picking up a simpler scenario, you can build on top of it to achieve more complex need.

What This Solution Does: Debatching

For the sake of simplicity I have created one envelope schema and one Payload Schema(Instances of which will be wrapped within envelope schema).

I have created a XML file Rcv Location where we will drop our envelope XML.Further I have created a send port having a subscription to the above Rcv port, hence whatever message arrives on the receive port will be sent to this send file location.

Our project is going to look like this:

For the sake of simplicity I have created only two schemas
1>SKU.xsd : It is your normal document schema.
2>SKUEnvelope.XSD : it is your envelope schema which will carry multiple SKU message XML within. Please see the picture.SchemaInstance

To create an envelope Schema you need to set the property Envelope to yes at the <Schema> node, and then you need to set the BodyXPath to the xpath of the node having the <any> element. Please see the below picture.


Once you have done that please go ahead and deploy. Create the receive and send port.
Now drop your envelope xml file to the receive location. The one I have used in this example has 4 SKU xml messeges wrapped within envelope schema. Hence when that gets picked up by the XMLReceive pipeline (This is the one which does the debatching) it results in 4 separate trigger of XML transmit pipeline component in turn reflecting on your  send port which will have 4 separate files each representing individual SKU payload XML we had wrapped within the envelope xml.


Please drop me a comment if you need any clarification. I will get back to you ASAP.
