Chapter 35. Understanding J2CA Through t... > Adapter Development Kit (ADK)

Adapter Development Kit (ADK)

Creating an adapter is a complex process. It requires an intimate knowledge of the EIS and WLI. WLI’s application integration framework provides an Adapter Development Kit, which provides a set of frameworks to facilitate and ease development of adapters. You can use the ADK to create two kinds of adapters: service and event adapters.

Service Adapters

Service adapters invoke specific functions on the EIS based on a request from a client. They may or may not generate a response. Service adapters can be invoked both asynchronously and synchronously. Typically, a service adapter receives a request from a client (in XML), transforms this request into EIS-specific format, invokes the EIS function required, and finally transforms the EIS response into an XML response in some cases.
