Duplex connection

May 22, 2012 at 8:25 PM

Hi guys,

 

I need to connect my Biztalk application to a third-party system using a TCP socket. The socket connection is to be used both to send and receive packets.  

 

So, I thought the duplex mode of the TCP adapter was exactly what I was looking for. The only problem is that the duplex mode expects remote clients to initiate the connection.

In my scenario, Biztalk is the one to initiate the connection, because the third-party system is the server.

 

I've also tried to use a two way send port (request-response) but I guess this is not exactly what I need because every time a request is send, a new connection is created, which is not what I want.

 

Is it possible to configure the TCP Adapter with duplex mode but with the ability of being the one to initiate the connection?

Any ideas on possible configurations?

 

Thanks so much,

Roger
