HTML Generator Stylesheet for BizTalk 2004 Maps

Almost every BizTalk artifact is beautifully documentable, especially using the BizTalk Documenter. One thing that’s always hard to document are the maps. Finally someone came up with a solution and that someone is Steve Hart.

The HTML Generator Stylesheet for BizTalk 2004 Maps is an XSLT which transforms the data of a map into viewable HTML. Although the approach is a good one, I’m not really sure about the added value. I don’t think the rendered HTML pages are very readable as there’s a lot of textual information on them. I think it’ll always be difficult to document a map, but maybe if it is presented in a more graphical and readable way it’s more useful. I’ll just wait for the next version.
