Header Fields in HTTP Adapter

Hi,

Can anyone please explain meaning of "Header fields in HTTP adapter" ? It has "Name" and "Value" fields in the receiver HTTP channel.

If I enter values like:

Name Value

Source XYZ

Destination ABC

Where will these appear in outbound HTTP post ?

Also, is this different from "HTTP Header Fields" checkbox available in "Adapter specific message attributes" section ?

Thanks

Bhaven

    The HTTP protocol supports transporting besides the payload a list of headers (key/value pairs). These headers are for example used to transport basic authentication. Other examples are the soap action header, the agent header and so on. Each server/client application could add/require it's own headers. That is why you may add individual headers.

    The Adapter specific attributes checkbox configures whether adapter specific attributes are to be used for configuration of the headers (as explained above).

    You use this, when you want to have dynamic header fields. You put here a key, but instead of a value you put a parameter name, which can be filled with a value during mapping runtime.
