However, in my rush to try to view how the accelerator work, I downloaded the Message Pack and not the Accelerator installation. The accelerator is a separate component that you must pay for (it is licensed on a per CPU basis).
The Message Pack are just updates to the Schemas and Infopath forms that are version specific. Microsoft release these updates to go alongside the new versions from SWIFT.
Getting trained by the SWIFT guys themselves was very informative.! From their perspective, their organization has not have the level of success that they have in other countries of the world. I believe that they mentioned something in the neighborhood of over 200+ countries associated with the SWIFT.
If you want to get familiar with the SWIFT and its Accelerator in Biztalk 2006, check out these 2 webcast on the MSDN:
- Using the Biztalk Accelerator for SWIFT (Level 200) - (30minutes)
- Inside the BizTalk Accelerator for SWIFT (Level 300) - (1.5hrs)
Once you install the SWIFT Accelerator in Vista, you get all of the messages, samples, and documentation. However, you won't get MRSR InfoPath forms. Also, you wont get the Message Repair and Reconciliation modules.
Just as an FYI, these are the SWIFT messages you will get when installing the Accelerator:
- GPA and FIN System Messages
- Customer Payments Cheques
- Financial Institutions Transfers
- Money Market Derivatives
- Collection Cash Letters
- Security Markets
- Treasury Markets
- Document Credits Guarantees
- Travelers Cheques
- Cash Management Customer Status.
I hope in the future I will have an opportunity to work with this Accelerator. It seems so robust and fits perfectly to solve the problem at hand.
