Many Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications use adapters to access other systems, such as systems with FTP support, systems providing flat files with data for processing, and systems with e-mail messages for distribution across organizations. The adapter patterns in IBM® WebSphere® Integration Developer are a way of reducing development time when using adapters with your application. This article shows how to use adapter patterns to build an application that retrieves files from an FTP server and sends files to an FTP server. These patterns will make use of the IBM WebSphere Adapter for FTP. Since message transformation is a common function of applications that read and write files through the use of adapters, this article also illustrates how to create a module with a business object map to transform a message received from an input file and send it to an output file. An understanding of SOA applications and terminology is assumed. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
