    HI Sandeep,

    Both adapters are for different purpose.

    The SOAP adapter enables you to exchange SOAP messages between remote clients or Web service servers and the Integration Server or the PCK. the SOAP adapter is a java application which is making only a envelope of some XML tags, you can easily create them for yourself with a mapping.

    The Plain http adapter is a part of ntegration Engine. It uses native http format i.e no SOAP Envelops. The HTTP is (native) adapter of the (ABAP) WAS, it is much more performant and more stable.

    Hi

    Go through Below Links

    The plain HTTP adapter gives application systems the option of communicating with the Integration Engine and exchanging business data using a plain HTTP connection. Depending on the receiver system, outbound messages can be enhanced with certain information.

    The SOAP adapter enables you to exchange SOAP messages between remote clients or Web service servers and the Integration Server or the PCK.

    In the SOAP adapter, you can specify security settings to be used to sign/verify the SOAP body. In addition, you can specify the standard to be used for signing/verifying the SOAP message.
