SOAP adapters are used when you need to integrate XI with Webservices.

When XI is used to invoke a Webservice, you use the Recieevr SOAP adapter,.

If you need to make some interface of XI as a Webservice then you create a WSDL in XI and then you use it to make a SOAP call to XI using the Sender SOAP adapter and a SOAP client.

Look into this guide and see if it helps,

Hi ,

When ever XI needs to talk to a webservice you will go for SOAP adapter. If you need to enable some functionality as webservice using XI you can use SOAP Sender adapter. If you need to send request to a webservice you will go for SOAP Receiver.Depends on the requiremnet you can select the sender/reciver adapter

SOAP adapters are usually used in scenarios where there is a communication to a webservice.

For example, you can look into this weblog where the flow is an RFC -> XI -> Webservice (sync call)



The SOAP adapter is used at the receiver end to communicate the webservice.
