    Hi Suren,

    Much needed blog !

    We currently have Biztalk 2002 product with appox. 50 integrations with at least 20 EDI integrations.

    Early next year we are planning to move to Biztalk 2006 R2.

    We tried to nominate for R2 TAP but it did not work out.

    Anyway when can customer expect R2 beta and final release?

    We would like to do some resource planning around that.

    Again very pleased to see EDI blog.

    Beta 2 is release is expected in March 2007. Of course the date is subject to change.

    While we wait for the promised splendor of R2 is there any source for BT06 / EDI functionality that actually explains what’s going on?

    the sample apps are great for POC but pretty much useless for real-world understanding.

    Hello Aldis:

    I assume your question is around the existing EDI Adapter. The EDI Adapter program is administered by a different group and I will pass this feedback to them.

    All the best!
