I took the BizTalk 2004 exam today and passed. I thought it was pretty hard, but the questions were fair, and a good test of your hands-on experience and understanding of the product. It would be hard to just cram for the exam from documents, if you don’t know the product, you won’t do too well. It has a reputation for not being an easy exam, so that’s more credit to anyone who passes.

 

Some resources I found helpful:

 

BizTalk Server 2004 Unleashed

Good info in the more detailed sections, and helpful for the admin, and management stuff.

 

BizTalk Documentation

Read the more advanced stuff (and make sure you have the latest update!)

 

SDK Samples

Run through these, deploy them, and get an understanding of how the code works.

 

Deep Dive Course

If you have a chance to get on the course, go for it, it’s a great help for the exam. If you have taken the course and understand the content you have a good chance, re-read the slides on the stuff you are unsure of.

Whitepapers

There’s a good section of whitepapers appearing on MSDN, they are worth checking out.

Hi,

My name is Lakshmi and i have a requirement to send email and SMS alerts from my Orchestration when i receive a message. I am a newbie to Biztalk.Can you help me understand how to send SMS alerts from BizTalk Orchestration? Do i need to code a .net component to provide SMS messaging? or is there any custom adapter available to do this?

Waiting to hear from you
Regards
Lakshmi

>>Can you help me understand how to send SMS alerts from BizTalk Orchestration?

Hi,

I used SMS in one project, we had a provider that exposed a web service for sending an SMS. If this is the case, you can call a web service form your orchestration.

There may be other products that expose a web service, or .net API for sending an SMS. It mght be possible to use one of those.

Regards,

Alan
