HTTP adapter vs WCF-WebHTTP adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • We migrated our applications from Biztalk 2006R2 to Biztalk 2013

    After migration to biztalk 2013, we are still using these HTTP adapters for some send ports as well as Receive locations.

    #Is there a necessity or advantages of switching to WCF-WebHTTP adapter from HTTP adapter??

  • Hi Annee,

    The WCF-WebHTTP is designed to support REST, with support for the verbs GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE. We can use the POST verb to replace the HTTP adapter functionality, and use WCF custom behaviors to tailor the adapter to our needs.

    This post explains how to migrate the HTTP adapter and why to look at this approach. This should give a summary of how to do this.
