I am totally new to BizTalk server. Now we are trying with basics of BizTalk 2006. We have installed and Configured BizTalk server 2006 at our development server. We have some simple questions.
1) To program with BizTalk and Visual Studio.NET IDE do we need to install the another version(developer) of BizTalk to all of the client PC's?
2) Installing some adapters to Client PC's will give us the power to design, develop BizTalk applications with existing 2005 IDE?
Question regarding BizTalk 2006 Server
Well, what you want is possible but the thing is, it requires very hard work and more over it isn't reliable and to make it reliable you need to be very accurate in each and every aspect.
Why don't you try "The Isolated Development Model" where every individual client PC has got the Software and they can develop it from there or you can create a Virtual PC where one setup image file is shared among the team.
Just go through this link for further more information.
I am not saying that you cannot do as you have stated above, but what I am saying is that it takes lots of effort what it is worth of, as any system crashes and it could be caused by any client.
So it is Risky.
