BizTalk 2010 mapper–mapping to a schema that has an attribute with an identical name to an element

Posted: October 8, 2011  |  Categories: BizTalk Uncategorized

One of my colleagues struck a problem trying to map to a rather nasty schema shown on the right below;

Attribute problem

The user element has an attribute of business-partner-no and there is a child element of the same name. No matter what you do if you try to drag a link to the child element called business-partner-no the link always gets connected to the attribute of the same name.

I am writing about this because I have just spent the morning changing the map to custom XSLT to get around the problem.

Is this by design or is this a bug with the BizTalk 2010 mapper? Does this occur with the mappers in previous versions of BizTalk?
