Additional instructions for installing the ESB toolkit sample applications

January 2, 2011

When attempting to install the sample applications as supplied with the ESB Toolkit installation package, it is important to observe the order in which the sample applications are installed.

The order is incorrect when following the instructions supplied with the documentation and will result in missing dependancies like BizTalk applications, assemblies and policies.

To get the sample applications working install the sample applications in the following order:

  1. Itinerary on-ramp sample.
  2. Dynamic resolution sample.
  3. Resolver service sample
