LOB adapter communication to business layer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there, at the moment i'm looking into the WCF LOB Adapter SDK but have one, maybe stupid question :-)


    As I understand, the adapter assembly most be installed and registred on the servers, where the adapter will be used, like on a BizTalk Server. The adapter will the be executed in-proc on the server, which makes sense when the adapter calls LOB systems with needs supports external connections like SQL Server, SAP etc. But what if the LOB system only provides access to its business model through an assembly/dll, which means no services or RPC available.


    Will I have to build a service for this LOB, that the WCF LOB adapter can call from the various systems that implement the adapter? Then the systems could call this service instead then?.
