      The WCF-based adapters shipped with the BizTalk Adapter Pack are the recommended solutions to integrate various LOB systems with BizTalk Server. The Adapter Pack consists of LOB adapters for SAP, Siebel, Oracle DB, Oracle EBS, and SQL Server. They are built on the WCF LOB Adapter SDK framework. However these are not the first adapters to be released by Microsoft for integration.

      The BizTalk Adapters for Enterprise Applications is a suite of adapters based on the older BizTalk Adapter Framework and was released with BizTalk Server 2006, BizTalk Server 2009, and BizTalk Server 2010. Among others, this suite has adapters for SAP, Siebel, and Oracle DB systems. BizTalk Server has a native SQL adapter.

      With the release of BizTalk 2010, SAP, SQL, and Oracle DB adapters are not supported. Instead, the new WCF-based adapters for SAP, SQL, and Oracle DB in the BizTalk Adapter Pack provide more features and support more LOB versions. The Adapter Pack is based on a different technology and is not compatible out-of-the-box with the older adapters. For example, a BizTalk application which used the older SAP adapter will not work directly if you installed the SAP adapter from the Adapter Pack.

      The BizTalk Adapter Pack Migration tool aims to help developers get started with the process of migrating projects using older adapters to use WCF-based projects. This tool currently supports migrating SAP, Oracle DB, and SQL adapters. After running the tool you should be able to deploy and run the new project as-is in most simple projects or fix some aspects as per the limitations outlined in the documentation. The package above has a detailed tutorial on how to use the tool.
