BizTalk Tip : Open Orchestration after edit using XML Editor

Hey,

Have you already have to edit an orchestration using XML Editor in Visual Studio? Because you need to replace the same word by an other or whatever.

After editing, if you try to open again your orchestration, you may not see you beautiful orchestration designer but some text like that :

#if __DESIGNER_DATA #error Do not define __DESIGNER_DATA. <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ standalone=”yes”?>#endif // __DESIGNER_DATA [Microsoft.XLANGs.BaseTypes.BPELExportable(false)] ……..

The tip to solve this problem is to edit you .bsproj file, so :

  • unload the project
  • edit the btproj file
  • locate the following item group

<XLang Include=”BizTalk Orchestration1.odx”>
      <TypeName>BizTalk_Orchestration1</TypeName>
      <Namespace>MyNamespaece</Namespace>
      <SubType>Designer</SubType>
    </XLang>

  • Remove the <SubType> element
  • Save your project
  • open your orchestration with your favorite designer.

hope this will help you.
