Resource Adapters Resource adapters are used to retrieve and route data. They provide access to databases, files, messaging systems, enterprise applications and other data sources and targets. Each adapter includes a set of adapter commands that can be used to customize its operation. Use the adapter commands to specify different queues and queue managers, specific messages by message ID, specific sets of messages with the same message ID, message descriptors in your data, and more. Resource adapters answer the questions "Where should the data come from?" and "Where should the data go?" The resource adapters provided with many Integration products enable data transformation and adapter-specific behavior recognition on different systems and data structures.
