BizTalk Documenter v3.3
BizTalk Documenter has been updated to v3.3. This being a point release, there is still no links to other tools such as MapDocumenter, but thats on the list for the upcoming combined Documenter and Profiler.
The main changes are
- The UI now allows selecting “Word” as an output option. This was always available in the command line but never surfaced in the WinForms.
- Enhancements to the command line so along with specifying “/defaults” you can also specify “/apps: (comma separated list of target apps)” and “/provider:word” The default forced you into CHM earlier).
- Bug fixes to the Word publisher (reported in the forums).
In the case of the Word output, there are no images of the orchestrations since we are actually writing Word 2003 XML directly and launching Winword.exe so there is no control over the transformations. I’ll take a look at including images but I’m not promising anything since I need to use the available time to concentrate on the new version where I plan to use the Open XML SDK.
Also note that the MMC SnapIn wont compile in BizTalk 2009 environments because the MMC API has now changed. The SnapIn is deprecated and will not be available in the next version. If you absolutely must have it, then let me know and I will keep it on the task list for upgrading but again, time is limited so no promises.
Hope you find the small enhancements useful. Check it out and let me know if you run into any issues.
