    Hi Chandra Sekhar,

    As explained above, even I havent heard of adapter called WebService Adapter.

    To add......if u wnat to check out the details of SOAP adapter.......

    SOAP Adapter: SOAP Adapter converts the SOAP messages into SAP XI message format that is SOAP with header attachments. This in an area many needs to really concentrate as it is heart of the ESA literature going forward.

    Refer Testing XI exposed Web-Services:

    /people/siva.maranani/blog/2005/03/01/testing-xi-exposed-web-services

    and Invoking XI Webservices:

    /people/siva.maranani/blog/2005/09/03/invoke-webservices-using-sapxi

    RFC to WebService - A Complete Walkthrough - Part 1

    /people/shabarish.vijayakumar/blog/2006/03/23/rfc--xi--webservice--a-complete-walkthrough-part-1

    and RFC -> XI -> WebService - A Complete Walkthrough -Part 2.

    /people/shabarish.vijayakumar/blog/2006/03/28/rfc--xi--webservice--a-complete-walkthrough-part-2

    You can down load a sample SOAP Client tool from SAP SOAP Client Tool.

    Please refer How to Set Up a Web Service-Related Scenario with SAP XI for delving more deep.

    Hope this was helpful.
