New SFTP adapter in BizTalk 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Why wasn't the SFTP adapter in BizTalk developed and based on WCF? Interested in that decisions to NOT use the new framework and what that was based on.

  • Hi Richard,

    SFTP adapter is  a protocol adapter like ftp,http, pop3, smtp...

    It is not an application adapter to be exposed as service contract as WCF LOB like oracle,SAP....

    We do not know what kind of data to receive to have its service contract.

    but for application like Oracle, sql, WCF LOB adapter generates the service contract and exposes it as wcf service adapter.

    for more information check this link The Role of Windows Communication Foundation

    I hope this will help you

  • SFTP BizTalk adapters used to a secure FTP server using the SSH file transfer protocol to send and receive messages since it is a protocol adapter and not an application adapter.

  • We'll likely never know exactly, but the Protocol vs. Application is a more than reasonable decision point.  Really, I've found developing BizTalk Adapters with BTAF easier than WCF, maybe that was a factor.
