The RSS Adapter consumes RSS feeds and translates them into item batches for your BizTalk Server.
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a popular and widely used syndication format. The RSS Adapter extends your BizTalk Server with the ability to consume any syndicated content that uses the RSS format.
RSS Receive Adapter
The RSS Receive Adapter is a simple RSS client that can fetch a publicly syndicated feed. Each individual RSS item in the feed is pulled out and treated as its own message, and the adapter will submit the feed as a batch composed of these messages.
The target feed is specified by FeedURL. If the PollingInterval is set to a low value, the adapter can potentially submit multiple duplications of the same message by fetching the same copy of the target feed. To ensure that this does not happen, the adapter requires that a CacheFile and CachePeriod be set so that the adapter can keep track the incoming RSS items.
Please refer to the section on adapter configuration for a description of how to configure receive locations and send ports for this adapter.
