    Hi,

    You can define the configuration information that is required for your adapter type in the adapter metadata. You use adapter metadata to define the part of a communication channel that is specific to the adapter type.

    In the adapter metadata schema, a differentiation is made between the sender/inbound direction and the receiver/outbound direction

    Refer

    Dear Paul,

    Yes, it is necessary to create adapter metadata to use the adapter that u have developed.U need to put into it all the configuration parameters that defines ur built in custom adapter

    The adapter metadata schema consists of a main part (Main Part of the Adapter Metadata) and schemas for the following groups and attributes:

    ○ AttributeReference

    ○ AttributeGroup

    ○ TransportProtocol and MessageProtocol

    ○ ChannelAttribute, SecurityAttribute,

    ○ ModuleProcessorAttributes

    ○ Attributes

    ○ Attribute Tables

    ○ LabelListType

    ○ ValueType

    ○ RecursiveCondition

    Adapter Metadata is nothing but a XML file.Once ur metadata is ready,u need to upload the same in ur server...just follow the following path...:

    http://localhost:50000/CPACache/schemaupload.jsp

    There u can browse thru and upload ur metadata file,filling in all the necessary information like adapter name,its version etc

    Hope this is of some use

    Regards

    Azahar
