Windows SharePoint Services Adapter

The BizTalk Server adapter for Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services provides a tighter integration of BizTalk Server with Windows SharePoint Services and Microsoft Office. Using the Windows SharePoint Services adapter in your BizTalk Server solution provides you with the following capabilities:

  • Easy access to input and output messages through Windows SharePoint Services.

  • The ability to edit XML messages by using Office applications such as Microsoft Office InfoPath.

  • Two-way transformations of XML messages to and from InfoPath.

    The SharePoint Services adapter consists of the following components:
