    BizTalk is an Enterprise Service Bus.

    The BizTalk Server runtime is built on a publish/subscribe architecture, sometimes called "content-based publish/subscribe". Messages are published into BizTalk, transformed to the desired format, and then routed to one or more subscribers.

    BizTalk enables companies to integrate and manage automated business processes by exchanging business documents such as purchase orders and invoices between disparate applications, within or across organizational boundaries. Human-centric processes cannot be implemented directly with BizTalk Server and need additional applications like Microsoft SharePoint server.

    Biztalk is an EAI tool which basically works on publish subscribe architecture. Receive port publishes the message to the message box database and send port takes its subscription. If there is an orchestraion involved then the orch rcv port acts as a subscriber and after processing orch send port which acts as a publisher publishes the message to the message box database and this message is then subscribed by the send port.

    Can you Explain Biztalk Enviroment?
    Enviornment in which anything runs under Biztalk runtime engine is called biztalk environment.

    What are adapaters pipes lines, and maps ?
    - Adapters - used to communicate with the outer media. e.g sql adapter is used for communication with the SQL databse.
    - Pipeline - used to recognize the data format which can be validated the changed if required. You can also extract the metadata and add it to the message context. There are two pipeline namely rcv pipeline and send pipeline that can be used depending upon the requirement.
    - Maps - used to transform from one schema to another schema. You can use functiods or XSLT to twick the data while mapping.
