BizTalk Server 2004 Service Pack 1 Posted

Microsoft posted the first service pack for BizTalk Server 2004 late Wednesday.

In addition to bug fixes and performance improvements, the service pack provides new performance counters, allows throttling of the FTP adapter, includes additional transaction handling for pipeline components, provides more information in SQL Adapter error messages and supports use of simplified Chinese characters.

The service pack is available from the Microsoft Download Center. It is a recommended update for all BizTalk Server 2004 customers.

The service pack follows the general availability of BizTalk Server 2004 by about 10 months. Microsoft first offered BizTalk Server in 2000; the server's purpose is to support enterprise and trading partner integration and business process management.

Microsoft's public product plans call for another version of BizTalk Server in 2006.
