Oracle Integration Cloud Adapters

Oracle Integration Cloud Adapters are used to connect to different hybrid applications. OIC provides many adapters . Let us see them in brief.

What are adapters

Adapters are required when the application or service we want to interact is unknown or are not compatible for consumption. When we have adapters for e.g IBM DB2 database, it becomes very easy to let your integration talk to the IBM Database, Similarly if you use saleforce adapter to integration to SFDC you don’t need to be aware of the direct webservices and its implementations. The adapter takes care of security and compatibility.

Advantages of OIC Adapters

In this way there are several advantages of using the Adapters.

e.g

  • Helps in seamless integration with various oracle and third-party technologies.
  • Supports may integration patterns
  • Security of application is handled by the adapter, be it basic authentication or OAuth.
  • In case of Oracle Apps it uses the Role based access control secuirty policy
  • Supports different versions of applications based on configuration

Oracle Integration Cloud Adapters (OICAs) provide a set of adapters that enable Oracle Integration Cloud applications to connect to external data sources. OICAs allow you to integrate data from any application or service into Oracle Integration Cloud, including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, SAP SuccessFactors, Workday, and many others and the list is growing.

The Rest and SOAP Adapter

  • REST Adapter – The REST (Representational State Transfer) Adapter is very commonly used in OIC integration. It allows url based services calls with flexible payloads .REST APIs are simpler and faster than SOAP APIs because they don’t require XML documents or SOAP envelopes. They also provide better security because they don’ t rely on encryption. REST APIs are usually built on HTTP protocol, whereas SOAP APIs are often built on HTTPS protocol.  The rest adapter can expose integrations as REST APIs when the REST Adapter connection is configured as a trigger.

  • SOAP Adapter – SOAP is used for WSDL based services. SOAP is a protocol (Simple Object Access protocol) that defines a common messaging framework for exchanging data across distributed systems. It uses XML (Extensible Markup Language) as its message format. The SOAP adapter can consume external SOAP API for integration messaging protocols in OIC.
