Exception Handing Intro The current version of BizTalk (2013 R2) ships with hundreds of features like Exception Handling, and there are textbooks published which list tons of patterns making use of these features. It is practically impossible for an individual, or even an organization who implements BizTalk Server to take advantage of all of these features the way the features were meant to be used by the original designers of BizTalk, and even harder to use those features in a way that is ideal.  The only way to learn how to use these features in the best possible way is through practice and lots and lots of experience.

Art2link Corp. has been involved with BizTalk Server since its inception, working with different clients, different verticals, throughout the years providing feedback to Microsoft’s Product Team in the improvement and enhancements for this product. Having this kind of exposure allows us to have a more comprehensive understanding grasp of all the product’s features, and it allows us to provide a solution that more precisely matches our client’s needs, and the needs that we know will arise in the future.
