    Raja Shekar,

    SOAP Adapter sender or receiver is used to expose your interface as web-service or to access other web-service. HTTP adapter accepts plain HTTP requests with XML payload while SOAP adapter expects SOAP payload.

    If you want comparison between the two, i guess it solely depends on your another application whether it has capability to invoke web service or not. The SOAP option would definitely better if u want to avail benifits of web services like publishing the same to UDDI etc.

    In simple scenarios HTTP would be suffice.

    Regards

    soap's purpose is to encoder to message.

    http does not have the function.
