New version of BizTalk Deployment Utility (BizTalk Diff) is now available

Some weeks ago, I published the first version of a tool that can help you during the deployment activities.

You can find this tool at https://github.com/pellitteris/BizTalkDiff address.

These days I have made available an updated version with the following features:

 

·          BizTalk environments comparison;

·          You can copy specific objects between environments such as send ports, send port groups, receive ports and receive locations;

·          It is possible to view all the ports in which are configured explicit credentials.

 

When you starts the application, the welcome form appears.

Once closed, you access the main form.

You have to specify the connection string to the BizTalk databases and start information collection.

Now you are able to navigate all the BizTalk objects.

Compare

 

When you choose to compare the environments, the application highlights the difference between the BizTalk systems in terms of existence of objects.

It is also possible to compare specified attributes of objects that exist on both systems.

Once the comparison is complete, the tool highlights the differences.
