An Biztalk Server 2004/2006 in-process receive adapter that executes a prescribed task on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule. The adapter is configured entirely within Biztalk, all config is stored within the SSODB and can be exported and imported via binding files. The schedule capabilities are similar to those available with the Windows Scheduled Task Service.
Three simple tasks are included:
XmlString - generates a Biztalk message from a configured Xml string
FileReader - generates a Biztalk message from the contents of a file
HttpDownload - generates a Biztalk message from data downloaded from a web site
Custom tasks can be created. Any .NET class that implements the appropriate interface can be scheduled.
