Updating from BizTalk Server 2010 to BizTalk Server 2013: Receive FTP Adapter Issue

So I created a simple application ...

4ward Azure su EAI

In 4ward abbiamo iniziato a sperimentare il futuro dell’integrazione “as a service” offerta da Microsoft con Windows Azure Service Bus EAI & EDI Labs. La piattaforma attualmente  è nelle prime fasi di sviluppo,  pertanto è poco stabile  ma sembra avere tutte le potenzialità per diventare un ottimo prodotto che completi la piattaforma Windows Azure nella parte EAI ed EDI.
