numbers conversion to custom decimal digits in BizTalk

In the MSDN BizTalk forums, one guy has questioned about converting a number/decimal to have predefined decimal points.

means for example if the value is 10.23, he wanted to display it as 10.2300.

one of the MSDN contributer boatseller has given excellent solution.

I’ve learnt this from the post here. the conversion code goes like below

private string formatTo4Dec(string number)
   double dblNumber;
   if (double.TryParse(number, out dblNumber))
      return dblNumber.ToString("F4");
     throw new System.ArgumentException(number + " is not a valid number format.");

similarly for date time custom formats you can have a look here

HTTP adapter issues and troubleshoot

I was working to configure HTTP adapter in BizTalk 2010 and faced few issues.

After all struggle i found that the problem was with the .net client code i was using to test, its not problem with BizTalk in any way.

Note: i have learnt that if we try to configure HTTP adapter for 64bit, we need to make sure the apppool should run on .net 4.0 version.

Anyway during the course of this troubleshoot following links have really helped me

Common pipeline that can be used for validation in any BizTalk application

Nabeer has written an excellent article here about a common pipeline that can be used for validation for any schema in biztalk.

Means you can use this pipeline in any BizTalk application for validation purpose, it will validate any schema that is deployed in to biztlk.

I have tested it with multiple scenarios and it works like a charm. If your need is only to use a common pipeline that can validate, then this is a good to use
