    we use SOAP adapter when we need to connect to remote system or use Webservices in these cases we use SOAP adapter.

    HTTP Adapter is used by extenal systems to connect to Intergartin server using native HTTP Interface.

    the http adapter is a service which is directly connected to integration engine. Adapter Framework (Java) isnt involved. It is much more performant than SOAP adapter.

    The SOAP adapter is written in Java and is responsible for the SOAP envelope around the real XML message. You can build/remove that envelope as well in the mapping and use instead http adapter. But standard for webservices is using SOAP adapter.

    HI Kiran

    A very basic difference is that

    when you want to send a request parameter or payload to some target system and you are expecting some response from the other side( optional) we use the Http adapter.

    While when you are using the target as webservice or source as webservice you use the SOAP adapter which envelops the message and send that xml message to the target.

    In case of consuming the webservice you use SOAP as receiver and in case of exposing you use SOAP as sender communication channel.
