Doing HTTP redirect using BizTalk

Doing HTTP redirect using BizTalk

Post by QWJkdWxsYW » Thu, 30 Mar 2006 06:38:05


Hi all,
I am requested to make BizTalk do HTTP redirection for HTTP calls that
comes to it.
Basically, the client has an apache frontend server and another apache
backend server. The front end server does nothing but redirecting the HTTP
requests to the bankend to protect the backend server. They are requesting
that BizTalk is put in the middle of those two serves so it can do HTTP
redirection and some basic logging to the HTTP request in BizTalk.
My question is, is that thing doable? Can any one give me even a high level
approach?
Thanks a lot

Do you want this to be doen for a specific app/Url and you wnat to log the
request by some promotion and sen this to another server , Yes you can do
that .

If you want to use it as a simple portforwarding kinda thing I dont think
you can and probably biztalk is not the best tool for that kind of job .

I don't think BizTalk is the tool you are looking for, if you simply wish to
do http re-directions, there are other bits of kit that can achieve this.

You can use BizTalk to receive a message via a http port, you can then send
this same message to a http send port by subscribing to the message, in
that way forwarding the same message, however there are better ways of
achieving this.

It is always best to take the message in and transform it, do something with
it, action it, not just forward the identical message somewhere else. Why
didn't they send the message to the other server in the first place?
