Overview: This paper discusses adapters and their role in Web services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).Businesses have spent billions of dollars on Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) technology, but have failed to achieve business agility. Many people are looking to Web services and service-oriented architectures to address some of the failures of traditional EAI. A universal adapter framework enables the same benefits as Web services, but requires less custom code and can be more flexible. The iWay Universal Adapter Framework provides a standard way to create an SOA from existing applications, data, transaction systems, and middleware.
