Reverse Engineering SSIS Packages

Ben Weissman shows how to use BimlOnline to reverse engineer an Integration Services package into its component Biml:

A few things to be aware of:

– Your file will be uploaded to and stored at BimlOnline so you may want to remove passwords etc.
– If you’re trying to figure out how to build a specific task in Biml but your file does way more that just that, consider creating (and uploading) a file that will only contain the task you’re looking for – this will keep the resulting Biml clean and easy to read.

This is extremely helpful for figuring out how to use third-party components with Biml.  If you want a local IDE, there’s always BimlStudio (which costs money).
