Visual Studio Solution Structure

Before implementing a deployment strategy, it is very important that your BizTalk solution have an easy to follow structure within your Visual Studio solution. Unlike an ASP.NET or Windows Forms application, a BizTalk solution will typically contain more than just Visual Studio projects.  Figure 1 shows one particular structure that accounts for the various BizTalk artifacts. The structure in the figure uses Visual Studio Solution folders to segment the different types of artifacts that need to be tracked for a BizTalk solution.

For example, the bindings for the entire solution are tracked under the Bindings solution folder.  In addition, the binding files follow a file naming convention that easily allows us to identify the solution and target environment based on the filename. It is also important to note that the Windows folder structure should resemble the Visual Studio solution structure to avoid any confusion. Figure 2 shows the Windows folder structure for the Visual Studio Solution from Figure 1.
