    hi krishna,

    The adapters are <b>not sync-async. </b>

    It is the communication between the adapters is sync and async

    hi krishna,

    synch asynch is not an adapter's property. it is the interface for data transfer that can be synch or asynch.

    http adapter is used to send/rec msgs in native http format (without a soap envelope).

    soap adapter is used to send /rec msg in standard soap format.

    refer this for adapters:

    Hi Krishna,

    Sync - Async are mode of communication.

    Asynchronous -> You sent some data and are not waiting from any response from receiver..

    Synch -> You are waiting for response from receiver after sending the data.

    we can use the adapters for Sync and Async Communications.

    <i>And what is the difference between HTTP and SOAP adapters</i>

    Soap adapter use a SOAP Enevolp over the basic XML.

    and SOAP is an open standard and runs in adapter engine.

    and HTTP request sends to pipeline.

    hi krishna,

    Adapters can't be referenced as Sync or Async. Adapters are used to provide a Communication channel which is classified as Sync or Async.

    Communication Channel:

    1. Sender Channel

    2. Receiver Channel

    Adapters are used to describe

    1. How should a message be picked up ?

    2.<b> How to convert an incoming message into native XML for internal processing</b>

    <i> you may be mistaken at the IDocs' are using Asynchronous Communication.</i>
