Tool for Generating/Maintaining PortBindingsMaster.xml

One of the manual task involved in using Biztalk Deployment Framework is to keep the PortBindingsMaster.xml updated (whenever you add orchestrations /Ports to your application or make other configuration changes).

I have developed a web based utility ( http://bbiztalk.com/?page_id=31 ) which will generate PortBindingsMaster.xml file with inputs as exported bindings (from Biztalk Admininistration) and SettingsFileGenerator.xml.

With this utility, whenever you make changes to your Biztalk configuration (in Biztalk Administration Console), you just need to export your Applications Bindings and use this utility ( http://bbiztalk.com/?page_id=31 ) to get updated PortBindingsMaster.xml.

Please note:
1) I tried to find existing discussion so as to avoid creating this thread but couldn't find.
2) If this thread is not relevant, then please hide/delete it and accept my apologies.
3) I think this utility will be very handy to all BTDF users. If it requires further changes to cover more scenarios, I can do that.
