    HI,

    HTTP adapter is used when you want to post a HTTP request message from a web application to XI.

    There is no need to create sender communication channel for Http adapter just like Idoc adapter

    Hi,

    The HyperText Transfer Protocol is an application layer protocol, which means it focuses on how information is presented to the user of the computer but doesnu2019t care a whit about how data gets from Point A to Point B. It is stateless, which means it doesnu2019t attempt to remember anything about the previous Web session. This is great because there is less data to send, and that means speed. And HTTP operates on Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Port 80 by default, meaning your computer must send and receive data through this port to use HTTP. Not just any old port will do

    Http is just a protocol for making a call to the server - request and response are two basic methods.

    If you need more information wrapped to it - header/message...you will use SOAP ( it just adds overhead to take same content)
