I've been working on a BizTalk solution in Visual Studio 2005 and have started getting an odd compiler error. The solution had been building fine for quite a while and then all of a sudden I got the following error message(s):
'System.String' must be Xml serializable to be a message part type -- check event log for more information
and / or
'System.Boolean' must be Xml serializable to be a message part type -- check event log for more information
Unfortunately there are no entries in the event log, but I noticed that restarting Visual Studio and rebuilding the solution fixed the problem. The downside is that this error does reappear every now and again which means more VS restarts.
It looks like a Visual Studio problem, but if anyone has any other explanation/solution please let me know.

I've been working with BizTalk server recently and I'm using this post to collect together some of the useful resources I've found for BizTalk developers/architects. My current knowledge of BizTalk is a little outdated since that last version I worked with was 2002, but now I'm working with 2006 (and potentially 2010) so my skills need updated. The following is a list of resources I've found useful so far:
BizTalk 2006 R2 documentation on MSDN
BizTalk 2010 documentation on MSDN
"How do I?" videos for BizTalk Server
BizTalk Webcasts on CloudCasts.Net
BizTalk Server Team Blog
There are a number of BizTalk books out there, but this one gets the good reviews and I've found it very useful.

If anyone knows any good resources please let me know.
