Default Design Concept

Hi Everyone,

I am an I.T. student trying to learn the basics of biztalk 2004. I have decided on a project for a small catering company that has 5 suppliers. While I am trying to figure out how exactly to design the project I have come up with a couple of questions. I was hoping maybe some of you who have experience with Biztalk could tell me if what I am trying to do is possible or if there is a better way.

I have 5 suppliers who supply different types of produce i.e. one mainly on ice-cream/sweets, one for bread products, one for vegtables etc.

I will be making the schemas and maps for each to transform the suppliers data into the companies preferred format. But then I want to automate the ordering process using infopath 2003. As I am using Windows XP Pro, I won't be able to use share point services so I was just going to enable the orchestration to send the form via email, using web services.

I know I can create a form for each supplier but is there some way I can use just one form where the user can select what products they want to order and if it is from just say 2 different suppliers then the Orchestration will then just send an order out to each supplier? I just thought this would be the best so that the user doesn't have to go through each suppliers list to see who is selling what. So that they can just worry about what they need and let the rest just work itself out so to speak or should this even be a concern? Should they just know which supplier to go to and make the order?

Also I was wondering even if I do need to make a seperate form for each supplier can I use the same orchestration or does each need a seperate orchestration.

As you can probably tell I am a bit muddled in trying to figure out how the process actually works. I would really appreciate any advice!!!

Thanks,

Sharon

Please can anyone give some suggstions? Like once I have done the translations do I have to create another schema for the orchestrations or can I immediately start them on the internal schema?

I really would appreciate any advice or even suggestions for reading material on the architecture design.

Thanks,

Sharon
