You are a Microsoft(R) BizTalk(R) Server 2006 technology specialist for your company. You need to enable and configure the new recoverable interchange feature in BizTalk Server 2006.
Where can you enable and configure this feature? (Each correct answer presents a complete solution. Choose two.)
- In Microsoft Visual Studio(R) 2005 while you are defining an orchestration
- In the Tracking Profile Editor
- In the BizTalk Server Administration Console
- In the Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) portal
- In Microsoft Visual Studio(R) 2005 while you are defining a custom pipeline
There are two ways of setting up the recoverable interchange in BizTalk 2006 either through the pipeline's XMLDisassembler component or through the Admin Console
What should you do?
- Download and install a community-supported MQSeries adapter.
- Use the built-in MQSeries adapter.
- Use the MQSeries application programming interface (API) to write your own MQSeries adapter.
- Download and install the Microsoft-supported MQSeries adapter.
Well this one is kinda obvious, Use the built-in MQSeries adapter.
"For BizTalk Server 2004 the MQSeries adapter was available as a Web
download. In BizTalk Server 2006, the MQSeries support comes built-in. With the
MQSeries adapter, organizations can use XML-enabled MQSeries investments, making it possible to more securely and reliably integrate disparate applications."
- Mapper tool
- Schema Designer
- Pipeline Designer
- Orchestration Designer
"Orchestration zooming. In BizTalk 2004, working with
complex orchestrations in the Orchestration Designer sometimes requires a lot of
scrolling on the design surface to view different parts of the orchestration. In
BizTalk Server 2006, the designer has been enhanced to provide the ability to
zoom in and out on an orchestration, allowing a developer to view only those
parts of an orchestration of current interest. "

You are a Microsoft(R) BizTalk(R) Server 2006 application developer. You want to create a schema that is based on a positional document.
What should you do?
- Purchase a third-party tool that converts positional documents to XML documents.
- Count and record the starting position of each field.
- Count and record the length of each field.
- Count and record the ending position of each field.
- Run the Flat File Wizard.
There are basically 3 types of flat files:
- Delimited flat file.
- Positional flat file.
- A flat file with combination of Delimited and Positional records.
What new feature of BizTalk Server 2006 should you use?
- BAM Web service
- Tracking Profile Editor
- BizTalk Server Administration Console
- BAM portal
The best answer here would be the BAM portal, where business users can set up queries and alerts on a single interface.
You are a Microsoft(R) BizTalk(R) Server 2006 technology specialist for your company. You need to provide notification in real time to business users about changes to their
What feature of BizTalk Server 2006 meets this need?
- Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) activity
- Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) alerts
- Business rules
In my opinion, BAM alerts would be the best answer here, since you can set it up to send notification when a certain parameter has been reached. BAM activity are just like queries which can be used in the alerts. Business rules and orchestration are more internal but still possible to send out notifications with the use of both of these, but not necessary if you have BAM setup.
What two categories can you find in Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) Web services in Microsoft(R) BizTalk(R) Server 2006? (Each correct answer presents part of the
solution. Choose two.)
- Human Workflow Services (HWS) service
- BAM portal BizTalk artifacts
- BAM query service
- BAM management service
Answer: BAM query service and BAM management service
1. BAM Query Service – The service is used
by the BAM Portal to retrieve BAM instance data. The service supports the
infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. The
service is not supported and is not documented. To retrieve instance, use the
supported techniques described at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/BTS06BizProcessMgmnt/html/ae4a8854-d5c2-4b36-a0ef-3f74e138306e.asp?frame=true.
2. BamManagementService – The following service provides, consumers the ability to manage subscriptions and alerts among other management operations
What type of file is used in Microsoft(R) BizTalk(R) Server 2006 to make application deployment and management easier by using the new application concept?
- Batch files
- .msi files
- XML files
- Microsoft Windows(R) Management Instrumentation (WMI) files
- Flat files
MSI makes the most sense here. It allows for minipulation to allow for a set of smaller MSI files instead of one large MSI file, and you can manipulate the MSI file with pre and post processing scripts.
