Configuring Bootstrap Adapters Outside Business Process Models

Sterling B2B Integrator includes several bootstrap adapters – adapters that can start processes dynamically without being part of the process model.

When building your business process models, do not include these adapters as the first step in a business process model. Using bootstrap adapters in this way is preferable because your goal is to reuse components whenever possible, for easier maintenance of your process models. If you create an adapter configuration specific to the business process, you are less likely to be able to reuse the adapter configuration to start other business processes.
