Hi Adam,

Thanks a lot for all the info. As i dont have any background on Biztalk, i am finding it difficult to follow the samples. Can you tell me the approach i should follow in detail.

This is what i want to acheive:
I have to write a custom adapter, which inturn listens to TIBCO messages, so whenever the TIBCo message arrives, the workflow should be trigerred. i have read through the much of theory regarding the cusotm adpaters, but there is very no documentation which epxlains the code samples, :(

So do tell me/mail me ( the apporach that i should follow if it is possible for you

Thanks in Adavance

     There's not very much documentation out there. I know that more is planned
     but it's not yet ready.
     As far as the error is concerned:
     When you add generated items to an orchestration, a service organization
     tree is created from an XML file. BTS queries the design-time component of
     the adapter and calls GetServiceOrganization to get the XML (which is
     typically an embedded resource). If no XML is returned then this error
     Take a look at the design-time component of the SDK FileAdapter sample. The
     XML file is named CategorySchema.xml. Presumably you need to find the
     equivalent in the GOTDOTNET sample.
