Installing the BizTalk ESB Toolkit Core

This section describes the process for installing the Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit core components.

To install the Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit Core

  1. Install the Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit .msi file appropriate for your platform. This step unpacks the files needed to install the BizTalk ESB Toolkit and creates necessary registry entries. The Itinerary Designer can also be installed and registered with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. To do this, click the Tools option in the installer.
  2. Import the appropriate ESB Toolkit Core .msi file as follows:
    • To import the core engine with bindings:
      1. Use the Microsoft.Practices.ESB.CORE.msi file and the BizTalk Server 2009 Administration Console. This step creates the Microsoft.Practices.ESB BizTalk Server application and register all required BizTalk Server artifacts in the BizTalk Server management database, such as built-in on-ramps, vocabularies, pipelines, and supporting assemblies.
      2. Install the Microsoft.Practices.ESB.CORE Windows Installer (.msi file) from the BizTalk ESB Toolkit install folder. This step installs the supporting core and exception handling runtime assemblies to the global assembly cache and installs the pipeline components to the appropriate folder.
    • To import the core engine without bindings.
      1. Install the Microsoft.Practices.ESB.CORE_NOBINDING .msi file from the BizTalk ESB Toolkit install folder. This step installs the supporting core and exception handling runtime assemblies to the global assembly cache and installs the pipeline components to the appropriate folder.

    The ESB.Deployment.Policy exists for deployment of the core BizTalk ESB Toolkit vocabularies. This policy does not contain any business rules for the Microsoft.Practices.ESB application.

Next, configure the Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit Core services and components.

To configure the BizTalk ESB Toolkit Core services and components

  1. Navigate to the installation path (the default path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0\) of the BizTalk ESB Toolkit and launch the ESB Configuration Tool in the bin directory (ESBConfigurationTool.exe).
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    For 64-bit versions of Windows, the default installation path will be %ProgramFiles(x86)%.

  2. Configure the Exception Management database. In the ESB Configuration Tool, as illustrated in Figure 1, select the Enable Exception Management Database check box. Provide the server and database name and credentials for your environment; the default database name is EsbExceptionDb. This step creates the exception handling database with the required permissions. Optionally, if choose to use an existing database to serve as the Exception Management database, you can make that selection here.

    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    If you have already created the Exception Management database as part of a multi-server installation, select the Use Existing Database check box to connect to the existing database.

  3. After you finish configuring the Exception Management database, click Apply Configuration.
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    When using the ESB Configuration Tool during initial installation, you must apply configuration changes to each section before you can continue to configure the next section. This process also validates each configuration section before you continue. Configuration of these sections must be completed consecutively.

  4. Configure the exception Web services. In the ESB Configuration Tool, as illustrated in Figure 2, select the Enable Exception Services check box to configure the exception Web services. Provide the user credentials for your environment; the user must be a member of the Administrators group or the BizTalk Isolated Host Users group. This step creates the two exception handling Web services that can be used by applications outside of the BizTalk ESB Toolkit.

  5. Configure the Itinerary database. Using the ESB Configuration Tool, configure the itinerary database. This step creates the Itinerary database, which can be used as a repository for server-side itineraries.
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    If you have already created ESB Toolkit Itinerary database as part of multi-server installation, select the Use Existing Database check box to connect to the existing database.

  6. Configure Core Web services. Using the ESB Configuration Tool, configure the core Web services. This step creates a range of Web services, including the core on-ramps and general functionality of the core, such as transformations, resolution, and Microsoft BizTalk Server operational information.

To enable the SSO Configuration Provider using the ESB Configuration Tool

Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
If you are installing and configuring the ESB Toolkit in a single server environment, you should use File Configuration Source. The SSO Configuration Provider is most commonly used for multiple machine deployments.

  1. Navigate to the installation path (the default path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0\) of the BizTalk ESB Toolkit and launch the ESB Configuration Tool in the bin directory (ESBConfigurationTool.exe).
  2. Under ESB Configuration, click Configuration, as shown in Figure 3, and then select SSO Configuration Source.
  3. In the SSO configuration data section, type or enter the following information in each box:
    • In the Configuration file box, click the ellipsis button (…), and then browse to the Esb.config file, which is included in the BizTalk ESB Toolkit.
    • In the Application Name box, type a name for the SSO application. For example, ESB Toolkit.
    • In the Contact Information box, type the appropriate contact information in the following format: someone@globalbank.com.
    • In the the Administrator Group name box, click the ellipsis button, and then browse to the appropriate name.
    • In the User Group name box, click the ellipsis button, and then browse to the appropriate name.
  4. Click the Apply Configuration button to apply BizTalk ESB Toolkit configuration changes. This step will create SSO applications for each configuration section defined in the Esb.config file in the SSO configuration database and update configuration source in the Machine.config file.
  5. Verify that user account associated with BizTalk server isolated host has valid permissions to access SSO configuration created for BizTalk ESB Toolkit.
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    When configuring ESB Toolkit on BizTalk cluster, the preceding steps are required when setting up the first server. Otherwise, manually update SSO Configuration provider settings for the rest of the BizTalk cluster.

    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    If you have already created SSO configuration source as part of multi-server installation, manually replace ESB configuration section in the Machine.config file from the computer where the ESB Toolkit has already been configured.

To create ESB entries for Microsoft UDDI Services

  • Run the UDDI Publisher tool (you can install it at %ESB Install Folder%\Bin\Microsoft.Practices.ESB.UDDIPublisher.exe).
Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
Make sure that Microsoft UDDI Services does not require Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for publication to the UDDI Services site.

To install BAM definitions

  1. Install BAM itinerary tracking activity definition. BAM itinerary tracking can be used to track the progress and eventual completion of itineraries as they advance through various steps. The BAM definition file (Microsoft.BizTalk.ESB.BAM.Itinerary.xml) is located in the BAM folder in the installation directory and can be installed using the Bm.exe tool. Use the following command as an example.
    Bm.exe deploy-all -DefinitionFile:"C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0\Bam\Microsoft.BizTalk.ESB.BAM.Itinerary.xml"
    
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    For multi-server deployment scenarios, you only need to install BAM definitions once.

  2. Install Exception Handling BAM tracking. The BAM definition file (Microsoft.BizTalk.ESB.BAM.Exceptions.xml) is located in the BAM folder in the installation directory and can be installed using the Bm.exe tool. Use the following command as an example.
    Bm.exe deploy-all -DefinitionFile:"C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0\Bam\Microsoft.BizTalk.ESB.BAM.Exceptions.xml"
    

To configure diagnostics and trace information

  1. To enable the BizTalk ESB Toolkit trace switch, add the following <switches> element to the system.diagnostics section of the Machine.config file.
    <system.diagnostics>
          <switches>
              <add name="BizTalkESBToolkit20" value="4"/>
          </switches>
     </system.diagnostics>
    

To install and run the sample applications

  1. Create a folder named Projects in the root of your C: drive, and create a subfolder named Microsoft.Practices.ESB within this folder.
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    In the current release, the supported installation is for the files to reside in the folder C:\Projects\Microsoft.Practices.ESB. The BizTalk binding files that ship with the samples depend on this path.

  2. When you install the download, it includes a .zip file called ESBSource.zip in the installation location you specified (by default, C:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk ESB Toolkit 2.0). Uncompress the ESBSource.zip file into the C:\Projects\Microsoft.Practices.ESB folder. This will create folders named Keys and Source that contain the sample key and the samples with source code. The Source folder contains the source code for the sample application, and the Keys folder contains the public keys used to sign the assemblies in the sample applications.
  3. Before you run the samples, remove the read-only attribute on the C:\Projects\Microsoft.Practices.ESB\ folder so that the samples install correctly.
  4. If you have not used PowerShell scripts before, you must open PowerShell as an Administrator and run the following command:
    set-executionpolicy unrestricted
    
    Ee384248.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote:
    For more information about PowerShell, see the Windows PowerShell Blog and Windows PowerShell on MSDN.

  5. Open a command prompt as an administrator and run the following command to ensure WCF script maps are registered:
    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation>ServiceModelReg.exe -r -y
    
  6. Follow the instructions in BizTalk ESB Toolkit Sample Applications to install and run the samples.
